Wednesday, December 06, 2017 APTA Fellowship Opportunities Focus on Education Research APTA has opened its search to fill a fellowship position that will help to define the body of knowledge that drives physical therapist education. The APTA Visiting Scholar Research Fellowships program is looking to fill a position for either an early-investigator research fellowship or a postdoctoral research fellowship. The early-investigator fellowship will be awarded to the most highly qualified applicant who currently holds a faculty appointment at an accredited US academic institution and is embarking on his or her sabbatical year, while the postdoctoral research fellowship is targeted at the most highly qualified postdoctoral physical therapist applicant who intends to pursue a career in education research. A complete description of the fellowships, including responsibilities, requirements, terms, and application instructions, can be found on the APTA website (postdoctoral fellowship here, early-investigator fellowship here). The deadline for submission of applications is January 12, 2018, with in-person and virtual interviews conducted on a rolling basis with an opportunity for in-person interviews to occur in February 2018, during the APTA Combined Sections Meeting in New Orleans. A final decision on the position will be announced in April. Questions about the fellowship should be directed to the APTA Research Department.
