Bradley University: College of Education and Health Sciences: Occupational Therapy Program

Description

Bradley University invites applications for the position of Occupational Therapy Academic Fieldwork Coordinator (AFWC) in the College of Education and Health Sciences. Bradley University is a comprehensive university with over 6,500 undergraduate and graduate students enrolled annually. It is consistently recognized as one of the best private universities in the Midwest.

This position is a full-time 12-month in-residence appointment beginning January 1, 2025.

This faculty position has documented release time for administering fieldwork education, teaching and advisement, scholarship, and service responsibilities. This position requires significant contact with students, outside constituents, professional consortiums, and faculty, so teaching responsibilities have been significantly reduced to meet the fieldwork program's needs.

Successful applicants will demonstrate a commitment to cultural diversity and the ability to work with individuals or groups from diverse backgrounds. Candidates must currently have or be eligible for Illinois state licensure as an occupational therapist with all licenses in good standing.

In addition to strong academic qualifications and excellence in teaching, the University highly values experience in working across cultural and other significant differences.
