The College of Arts, Letters, and Education at Eastern Washington University invites applications for a full-time Assistant Professor of Athletic Training in the Department of Physical Education, Health & Recreation (PEHR) to begin mid-September 2019.
The successful candidate will teach athletic training courses, supervise athletic training student clinical experiences, and advise athletic training students in a CAATE accredited athletic training program. The candidate will participate in data collection and outcomes assessment that is vital to maintaining accreditation status. The candidate will also be a member of the graduate faculty and will teach courses appropriate to his or her discipline as needed. The successful candidate will also teach other departmental courses as needed, serve on department, university and professional committees, conduct research for publication, grant acquisition and presentation, participate in outreach to the community and demonstrate teaching excellence, professional growth and service. Interest in online teaching and pursuit of grants or other external funding is expected.
Eastern’s PEHR faculty bring knowledge and experience in teaching, research, and service to their undergraduate and graduate programs. We are especially interested in a colleague who complements our existing faculty, who can develop and maintain strong community relationships, who can serve on department, college and university committees, as well as maintain an active role in a professional organization, develop a focused line of research, and seek extramural funding for research or programs. The department’s undergraduate programs prepare students to complete degrees in Public Health, Exercise Science, Health and Fitness, Recreation Management, Outdoor Recreation, and Therapeutic Recreation. We have Master of Science degrees in Athletic Training and in Physical Education with two tracks – Sports and Recreation Administration and Exercise Science.
Additionally, all faculty are expected to actively participate in assessment of student learning and to engage in effective teaching.

In addition to Eastern’s Cheney campus, we also offer our Riverpoint campus in Spokane, plus additional teaching/learning centers located in other cities throughout Washington State. Enrollment has reached over 13,000 students. The Cheney-Spokane area is the heart of the Inland Northwest, with excellent restaurants, theater, shopping, skiing, hiking lakes, a choice of living in a medium-sized city or a small town, and high-quality schools and housing.
