The developing Occupational Therapy Doctorate (OTD) Division at Duke University seeks to build a diverse inaugural faculty cohort. We are seeking two individuals who embrace the Division’s vision—A world where all people flourish through access to and participation in meaningful, health-supporting occupations—and who can help manifest that vision in all aspects of the program. Top candidates see their work directly contributing to the Division’s mission, share the Division’s core commitments, and imaginatively connect all learning to occupation (medschool.duke.edu/otd). Outstanding candidates will make positive contributions to the OTD team on these curriculum initiatives: designing and integrating courses, teaching, scholarship, fortifying novel partnerships at Duke and regionally, evaluating program outcomes, and meeting accreditation requirements, among other shared initiatives. Initially, effort will be primarily in teaching. We specifically seek candidates who can contribute to teaching, research, and outreach related to occupation and technology, enabling occupation through policy and advocacy, or supporting occupational engagement among older adults. While these are preferred, we welcome applicants with expertise in other areas related to occupational engagement.

Demonstrated excellence in occupation-centered instructional design, teaching, and learning assessment, 3. Expertise for facilitating content related to occupation such as occupation as a mechanism of health, occupational disruptions from conditions ranging from sociopolitical to personal factors, enabling occupation skills (CMOP-E), and coaching students to connect who they are with what they do. 4. Completed doctoral degree (e.g. Ph.D, Ed.D, post-professional OTD, Sc.D.), 5. Eligibility for occupational therapy licensure in North Carolina, 6. Exemplary interpersonal skills, 7. Record of positive collaborations with diverse teams, 8. Expertise in accessible, inclusive pedagogy and contemporary pedagogical approaches such as simulation, team-based learning, interprofessional education, community-based learning, flipped classroom, and others, 9. Record of scholarly output and contribution related to education, occupation, and/or social models of health and disability.
Preferred Additional Criteria: 1. Documentation of effective teaching and scholarship in one or more of the following: a. Occupation and technology (may include technology use and design, assistive technology, access, and equity, etc.) b. Enabling occupation through policy and advocacy c. Optimizing occupational engagement among older adults 2. Experience in occupation-centered instructional design. 3. Experience with occupational science. 4.
