Tenure-Track Appointment
Musculoskeletal Biomechanics

YORK UNIVERSITY. Faculty of Science and Engineering, Toronto, Ontario.
Applications are invited for a tenure-track appointment at the
Assistant Professor level in the area of Musculoskeletal Biomechanics.
Applicants should have a research focus in whole or lower body mechanics
with an emphasis on adaptation to musculoskeletal injury as this would
complement York's strength in upper extremity biomechanics. A secondary
research focus on the control of movement would also link well with our
strengths in motor control. The starting date is July 1, 2006. Duties
include undergraduate, graduate teaching and supervision of graduate
students and related research programs. The M.A., M.Sc. and Ph.D.
programs cover health-related aspects of exercise physiology,
psychology, biomechanics and fitness/epidemiology. A Ph.D. and a
promising publication record in refereed journals are required, as well
as the ability to develop a productive research program supported by
external funding. Postdoctoral experience would be a definite asset.
Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, a covering letter stating
future research goals, three relevant reprints, and have three letters
of reference sent by January 6, 2006, to:
