The Faculty is aggressively positioning itself as a centre of scholarship
and research in the Atlantic Region. It has embarked on an active
recruiting process to create an enthusiastic cadre of teachers/researchers
in the Exercise and Sport Sciences. It is striving to support the work of
these scholars in their own specialities and also to encourage the
development of collaborative research and contract work with other members
of the Faculty as well as with members of other university and
extra-university units, such as the Institute for Biomedical Engineering,
the Canadian Research Institute for Social Policy, and the Chalmers
Regional Hospital. In response to growing graduate and undergraduate
enrollments, the Faculty is continuing to refine its Exercise/Sport Science
Program, with the degrees of Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Master
of Science in Exercise/Sport Science. Further information about the Faculty
can be found at http://www.unb.ca/Kinesiology.

The Faculty is looking for a scholar to teach in the areas of motor
control/motor learning, and/or motor development, and to conduct research
in these (or allied) fields. A PhD is required, together with evidence of
independent research. Post-doctoral experience would be an asset. Duties
will include research, teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels,
and supervising graduate students. Successful candidates will be expected
to compete for research grants and contracts to support their research
program and their graduate students.

Applicants should submit a covering letter of application, a curriculum
vitae and three letters of reference to Dr. Christopher Stevenson (as
