Assistant/Associate Professor in Applied Physiology

The School of Applied Physiology at the Georgia Institute of Technology
invites applications and nominations for a tenure-track position in the
area of biomechanics at the Assistant/Associate Professor level. Applicants
for this position should have well-documented interests in basic and
applied research in biomechanics and movement control. Although all areas
of interest will be considered, primary consideration will be given to
applicants with a research focus that includes applications to the fields
of prosthetics and/or orthotics. The successful candidate will be expected
to contribute to the development of a strong graduate program in Applied
Physiology, to teach and mentor students, and to provide a link between the
School and the Masters Degree Program in Prosthetics and Orthotics.
Applicants must have an earned PhD and a strong record of publication.

The School of Applied Physiology is in a rapid growth phase with strong
support at all levels of Institute administration. Current faculty members
are active in the areas of biomechanics and the neural control of movement,
motor control and motor behavior, clinical prosthetics and orthotics,
muscle physiology, and systems physiology as applied to exercise.
Collaborations currently exist at Georgia Tech with the Center for Human
Movement Studies (CHMS), the Center for Assistive Technology and
Environmental Access (CATEA), the School of Psychology and the College of
Engineering, and at Emory University School of Medicine with the
departments of Physiology, Cell Biology, Neurology, Pharmacology , Internal
Medicine, Vascular Surgery, Dermatology, Orthopedics, Rehabilitation
Medicine as well as the Atlanta Veterans Administration Hospital, Grady
Memorial Hospital and Atlanta area prosthetics/orthotics patient care
facilities. Interested individuals should send a letter of application,
curriculum vitae, and three recent publications and the names, addresses,
email addresses and phone numbers of at least three individuals we could
contact for letters of recommendation. Applications will be reviewed
beginning immediately and continue until the position is filled, but all
material must be received by 4/01/04 to be assured of full consideration.
Anticipated start date is August 2004.
