Two tenure-track faculty (assistant/associate professor) positions
are available in the School of Applied Physiology at the Georgia
Institute of Technology in Atlanta. One position is in the areas of
neuromuscular plasticity and/or metabolic regulation and the other
one is in any areas of applied physiology as related to movement or
exercise science.

1. Tenure Track Assistant/Associate Professor in neuromuscular
plasticity and/or metabolic regulation

As part of its ongoing expansion, the School of Applied Physiology at
the Georgia Institute of Technology invites applications for a
nine-month tenure track faculty position at the level of Assistant or
Associate Professor. We will consider outstanding applicants working
in any area of applied physiology, but we are particularly interested
in candidates working in the areas of neuromuscular plasticity and/or
metabolic regulation. Applicants must have an earned doctoral degree
and will be expected to establish a nationally recognized,
extramurally funded research program. The successful candidate will
also be expected to contribute to the continuing development of our
graduate program, to teach and mentor students, and to support the
growth of the School.

The School of Applied Physiology is in a rapid phase of growth with
strong institutional support. Current faculty members are active in
the areas of muscle physiology and biochemistry, exercise physiology,
the neural control of movement, motor control and motor behavior,
biomechanics, and prosthetics and orthotics. Collaborations currently
exist at Georgia Tech with the College of Engineering, the School of
Psychology and Center for Human Movement Studies in the College of
Sciences, the Center for Assistive Technology and Environmental
Access, and the Departments of Physiology, Cell Biology, Neurology,
Pharmacology and Rehabilitation Medicine at Emory University School
of Medicine as well as with the Atlanta Veterans Administration
Hospital. Interested individuals should send a letter of application,
curriculum vitae, three recent publications and the names, addresses,
email addresses and phone numbers of at least three individuals to be
contacted for letters of recommendation. Please submit materials in
PDF to ed.balog@ap.gatech.edu and cc all documents to
kristy.wentz@ap.gatech.edu. Applications will be reviewed beginning
immediately and continue until the position is filled. Materials
should be received by February 15, 2008.

2. Tenure Track Assistant/Associate Professor in Applied Physiology

The School of Applied Physiology at Georgia Tech invites applications
from outstanding scientists for a nine-month tenure-track position at
the level of Assistant or Associate Professor. All areas of interest
will be considered in applied physiology as related to movement or
exercise science. The successful candidate must have an earned
doctorate degree and a commitment to excellence in teaching, service,
and research including quality record of publication and potential
for and/or record of external grant funding. The candidate is
expected to establish a nationally recognized research program
supported by extramural funding, participate in interdisciplinary
research activities, and teach at both the undergraduate and graduate
levels. Our academic programs include PhD in Applied Physiology,
Master of Science in Prosthetics and Orthotics, and Undergraduate
Certificate in Applied Physiology. Salary and rank will be
commensurate with education and experience.

The School of Applied Physiology is one of seven academic units
within the College of Sciences. We are in a rapid phase of growth
with strong support from upper levels of Institute
administration. Five faculty members have joined the School since
2003, and another faculty is expected to join 2008. Current faculty
members are active in the areas of biomechanics and motor control,
neuromuscular physiology, comparative neuromechanics, prosthetics and
orthotics, molecular biology and muscle physiology, and exercise
physiology. Installation of an fMRI scanner is being planned on
campus. Campus collaborations exist with Department of Biomedical
Engineering, Schools of Psychology, Biology, Interactive Computing,
and Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the Center for Assistive
Technology and Environmental Access. Off-campus opportunities are
available with the Emory University School of Medicine, the Georgia
State University, the Atlanta Veterans Administration Hospital, the
Shepherd Center, and the Children's Healthcare of
Atlanta. Applicants are encouraged to visit our School web site at
http://www.ap.gatech.edu.

Interested individuals should send a letter of application, research
interests, curriculum vitae, three recent publications, and the
names, addresses, email addresses and phone numbers of at least three
individuals who could be contacted for letters of
recommendation. Please submit materials in PDF to
shinohara@gatech.edu and cc. all documents to
