FACULTY POSITION IN PHYSICAL ACTIVITY, EXERCISE & HEALTH

Assistant Professor

Biomechanics



Applications are invited for a tenure-track appointment commencing
July 1, 2006. The College of Kinesiology offers a four-year Bachelor
of Science degree in Kinesiology (B.Sc. (Kin.) as well as graduate
programs at the MSc and PhD levels. Current enrolment consists of
approximately 500 undergraduate students and 50 graduate students.
The College is committed to the scholarship of discovering,
preserving, teaching, and applying knowledge as it pertains to human
movement, active living and healthy lifestyles. This is enhanced by a
new state-of-the-art $33 million Kinesiology building, which provides
an environment for faculty that is conducive to the development of
high-quality research programs and delivery of excellent graduate and
undergraduate student instruction. The University of Saskatchewan is
unique in Canada in that the University houses all of the health
science colleges, providing opportunities for collaborative
endeavors. The central focus of research by faculty in the College is
that of physical activity and health with particular emphasis in (1)
community-based research and behaviour change and (2) physical growth
and development across the lifespan. The College has a history of
interdisciplinary research as evidenced by inter-college, inter-
university and international collaboration and multidisciplinary tri-
council funding success.



QUALIFICATIONS: Candidates must have a Ph.D. and a demonstrated
commitment to the teacher-scholar model. Post-doctoral training is an
asset.



Preference will be given to candidates who are capable of meeting the
College’s undergraduate teaching needs in biomechanics and whose
research expertise in physical activity and health aligns with the
College’s areas of emphasis and/or with one or more of the core
research groups on campus. This may include those with research
programs in neuromechanics, bone mechanics, muscle mechanics or any
application of mechanical principles to human movement.



DUTIES: Duties include the development of a strong research program
in physical activity, exercise and health. The ability to work with
an interdisciplinary team on research involving the interplay of
biomedical and psychosocial factors as they relate to human movement,
physical activity, physical fitness and health is a definite asset.
In addition, the successful candidate will be expected to supervise
graduate students and to be competent in teaching at both the
undergraduate and graduate level.



SALARY AND RANK: This position is advertised at the Assistant
Professor level. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications
(range $52,494 to $78,018 per annum).



APPLICATION PROCEDURES: Interested applicants should submit a letter
of application outlining their research and scholarship interests,
and a teaching dossier. These materials, along with curriculum vitae
and the names (addresses phone/fax and e-mail addresses) of three
academic referees, should be sent to:
