The preferred candidate will have an interest in continuing to shape a pre-physical therapy degree program that consistently produces graduates that are highly competitive for doctoral programs. Candidates should be capable of performing research and scholarship that is publishable in peer-reviewed journals and that ideally, engages undergraduate and graduate students.

The University of Dayton is committed to the recruitment, hiring and promotion of outstanding, diverse faculty and staff who value its mission and share its commitment to academic excellence in teaching, research and artistic creativity, the development of the whole person, and leadership and service in the local and global community. In support of this commitment, the University is pleased to provide support for spouses of prospective and newly hired faculty. The dual career program serves as a resource and support system and is not intended to take the place of one’s own job search efforts. While we cannot guarantee placement, we serve as an effective support system for your spouse. Information can be found at
