For early career applicants, preferred candidates hold the rank of assistant professor or a postdoctoral position, but we will also consider exceptional doctoral students who will complete a doctorate prior to appointment.

Dr. Mary Terhaar, a foremost national expert on preparing and developing the nursing workforce and translating evidence into practice and education, recently joined Temple and will soon be appointed Department Director.
