This is an opportunity to direct an excellently equipped biomechanics laboratory located within a 7 million indoor athletics complex. You will lead the teaching, research and consultancy in this specialism.

The post will be of interest to a highly qualified and motivated lecturer keen to work in a renowned specialist centre for biomechanics and physical education.

Applicants should have a higher degree in a relevant discipline and be able to teach at postgraduate level and ideally supervise M.Phil/Ph.D. students. The School of Sport, PE and Recreation has recently restructured its undergraduate degree scheme to incorporate 4 designated pathways. Recruitment to the scheme in sports studies is buoyant with 250 students a year selected from applications of around 2,500. We also have 50 FTE students pursuing taught Masters courses on a recently restructured Postgraduate Scheme in Sport Studies.

By September 2000 the School will be servicing the needs of 900 Sport, PE and Recreation Management students, which will make the University one of the largest providers of sport-related degree work in Britain.

The successful applicant will be a highly motivated specialist with a first degree in sport or a relevant discipline together with a postgraduate qualification. Preference will be given to candidates with teaching and/or appropriate vocational experience. An ability to contribute to the delivery of research methods modules is essential.
