Join our dynamic, collaborative faculty, contribute to the development of our enthusiastic students and enjoy the beauty of the Arizona desert, mountains and of course, warm sunny winters. The Franklin Pierce University Doctor of Physical Therapy program is located within the Goodyear City Center, 20 miles west of Phoenix, in a facility designed and built-out in 2012 to accommodate our programs growing needs.

We are expanding our full-time faculty and seeking an experienced physical therapist faculty member to join our team. Primary responsibilities of this 12-month position include development and delivery of the curriculum to students, student advisement, scholarship, leadership in service to the University and to the profession, and participation in community outreach.
