The Faculty of Human Movement Sciences
Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Netherlands
seeks a
Full professor in neuromuscular control

The Faculty of Human Movement Science offers Masters and Ph.D.-level
education in Human Movement Science. The four-year Masters level has five
possible specializations: the structure and function of the human motor
apparatus, the coordination of perceptual-motor actions, and three applied
areas related to human movement in the workplace, in sport and physical
education, and in health care. The research is brought under the
multi-university graduate Institute for Fundamental and Clinical Human
Movement Science. The three main themes of research are: physical loading
and capacity of the human action system, energy metabolism and fatigue, and
movement coordination.
The professor in neuromuscular control is expected to teach and to do
research on the neural underpinnings of motor control, as well as to help
define the teaching and research agendas in this area.

It is expected that he or she will have
a considerable reputation as a scholar in the field;
a track record in the study of neuromuscular control systems and up-to-date
knowledge of theories on motor control;
experience in the formulation and/or testing of neuromuscular control
models;
experience in collaboration with researchers with other disciplinary
backgrounds;
affinity for biomechanical considerations in the study of motor control;
experience in and enthusiasm for teaching neuroscience in relation to motor
control and qualities in the supervision of undergraduate and graduate
student research;
qualities of leadership that will further stimulate teaching and research
within the faculty;
qualities in management and administration;
a track-record of procuring external funding;
willingness to learn the Dutch language and to teach in Dutch after a period
of two years.

Salary: The tenured 12-month-per-year appointment will likely begin in
January, 2000, and carries the legally prescribed salary for full professor.

Further information can be obtained from Prof. dr. P.J. Beek, Human Movement
Sciences, Vrije Universiteit, van der Boechorststraat 9, 1081 BT Amsterdam,
Netherlands or by email: P_J_Beek@FBW.VU.NL

A letter of application together with a curriculum vitae and the names of 3
references should be sent before within one month after publication to Mw.
