The Department of Health and Performance Sciences at Georgia Tech invites
applications for a nine-month appointment, tenure-track faculty position in
area of movement science. While candidates from all related fields are
encouraged to apply, we have a particular interest in individuals with
expertise in one or more of the following areas: motor control and learning,
the neural control of movement or the effects of aging on the neuromotor
system. The successful candidate must have an earned doctoral degree, an
established record of scholarship and a documented commitment to excellence in
teaching, service and research. The candidate is expected to develop a
nationally recognized research program, participate in interdisciplinary
research activities, teach undergraduate students and actively participate in
the development of a graduate program in the movement sciences. Salary and
title will be commensurate with education and experience.
The Department of Health and Performance Sciences is in the College of
Sciences, one of six colleges at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Current
faculty members are active in the areas of biomechanics and the neural control
of movement, movement stability in the elderly, biomedical engineering and
prosthetics and orthotics, molecular biology and muscle physiology and systems
physiology as applied to exercise. Collaborations currently exist with the
Center for Human Movement Studies at Georgia Tech, The College of Engineering,
The Center for Rehabilitation Technology at Georgia Tech, the Departments of
Physiology, Cell Biology and Rehabilitation Medicine in the Emory University
School of Medicine and the Atlanta Veterans Administration Hospital. The
Department of Health and Performance Sciences will move into new space in
December of 2000 and the new faculty member will be expected to assist in the
development of that space for teaching and research.
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 we would contact for letters of
recommendation. Applications will be reviewed beginning immediately and
continue until the position is filled. Once a candidate is selected the
position will start August, 2000 at the start of fall semester. To receive
consideration we suggest completed applications be received no later than
January 31, 2000.
