(equivalent to American Associate Professor)
In Sports Biomechanics
(as advertised a few days ago but clarified and with a closing date 6/12/04)

The University of Sydney
School of Exercise and Sport Science,
Faculty of Health Sciences

The School is seeking applications from academics with doctorates in areas
relevant to the field of exercise and sport science with a specialisation in
Sports biomechanics.

Applicants at all levels will be expected to be enthusiastic and experienced
teachers, active and productive researchers and willing to contribute to the
School administrative duties.

Essential criteria for Level C:

1. Postgraduate qualifications at doctoral level that are indicative of
research training in applied/sports biomechanics.
2. Broad understanding of the exercise response with a particular focus
on both basic mechanisms and applied aspects of sports biomechanics.
3. a strong research background in the analysis of human movement
including three-dimensional kinematics, kinetics, and rigid body dynamics
4. Evidence of an established research profile including a strong
publication record of peer reviewed research publications in ‘high impact
factor’ journals
5. Evidence of supervision of PhD students to completion
6. Evidence of co-ordination of Units of Study at the undergraduate
level with a minimum of 5 years lecturing experience
7. A demonstrated understanding of teaching and learning principles and
practises

1. An ability to engage in entrepreneurial activities and/or establish
links with sports organizations and/or commercial interests outside the
university
2. An ability to design and produce on-line teaching/learning material
and develop innovative teaching strategies
3. Experience in curriculum development and implementation
4. A specific interest in one or more of the following research areas:
• proficiency of movement (efficiency and effectiveness of
performance, mechanical energy expenditure)
• injury minimisation
• coordination of movement and its contribution to proficient
performance
• computer modelling of human movement






Sports Biomechanics

a. proficiency of movement (efficiency and effectiveness of
performance, mechanical energy expenditure)
b. injury minimisation
c. coordination of movement and its contribution to proficient
performance
d. computer modelling of human movement


Applicants must indicate the level of at which they
are applying and selection criteria must be addressed.
The School of Exercise and Sport Science is a
cohesive, scholastically excellent and proactive
academic unit. The School is proud of its reputation
in producing high calibre graduates, and of its
identity as a national leader in research in the
application of exercise science to sports performance,
injury prevention, healthy ageing, health promotion,
disease and disability prevention and treatment.

Recently the School formed a partnership with the
University of Technology Sydney and the Sydney Olympic
Park Authority to establish the International Centre
of Excellence in Sports Science and Management, an
Australian Government initiative.

The School is responsible for the B.App.Sc.(ESS) pass
and with Honours, and the combined degree B.App.Sc(ESS)/B.Sc.(Nutrition).
Postgraduate programs include the Graduate Diploma of Health Science (ESS),
Master of Health Science (ESS) by Coursework, Master of Applied Science
(ESS) by Research and Doctor of Philosophy in the area of exercise and sport
science (ESS).

Closing Date 6/12/04
