Applications are being accepted for a tenure-track position at the
Assistant Professor level in the field of musculoskeletal biomechanics.
Candidates should have demonstrated research and teaching experience in
biomechanics of human motion and tissue injury. The successful candidate
will have expertise in one or more of the following areas: muscle
mechanics, joint mechanics, movement/performance optimization,
determination of internal muscle and tissue forces, injury mechanisms, and
control of movement. The work will span basic to applied research with
application to injury prevention. The candidate is expected to present
both a clear path for independent research and a strong desire to work
within a well equipped research team that includes a Canada Research Chair
in Spine Biomechanics and Injury Prevention.

The Department of Kinesiology is an inter-disciplinary department with
expertise spanning the social to biological study of human movement, and
is the only undergraduate program in Ergonomics in Canada. The mission of
the department is to discover and explain mechanisms and principles of
human movement and to apply this knowledge to the prevention of illness
and injury together with strategies which optimize the health and physical
performance of individuals in work and leisure activities. The department
offers B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Kinesiology.
