  • San Francisco job opportunity

    I realize this is not a biomechanics position, but please pass on to anyone
    you feel would be interested. I apologize for cross-postings.

    Inquiries should be directed to the name at the bottom of the
    announcement...not me. John Blackwell


    The Department of Exercise and Sport Science at the University of San
    Francisco invites applications for a tenure-track position in clinical
    exercise and health promotion at the Assistant Professor level to begin in
    the Fall of 2005.

    Department: The Department of Exercise and Sport Science currently serves
    approximately 120 undergraduate students. We offer both a Bachelor of Arts
    and a Bachelor of Science degree. The department also has a minor in
    exercise and sport science and is currently involved in developing campus
    wide interdisciplinary minors in Gerontology, Health Communication and
    Neuroscience. The Department also offers undergraduate physical activity
    courses for majors and non-majors. The majority of our students are
    interested in post-baccalaureate work in allied health-related fields, as
    well as the sport, exercise and fitness industries. Faculty interests
    include physical activity and healthy aging, motor behavior, sports
    biomechanics and performance, community health issues, exercise and health
    management, and pedagogy in physical education.

    Responsibilities: Teaching duties may include, inter alia, human anatomy
    and physiology, clinical exercise and disease prevention, exercise and
    public health, nutrition, and health promotion strategies. The successful
    candidate will be expected to develop an independent and ongoing research
    program in the area of health and fitness promotion or public health
    issues. Opportunities are available to involve undergraduate students in
    faculty research. Additional responsibilities may include supervising
    structured internships for ESS students working in community settings
    relevant to exercise, fitness, and health.

    Qualifications: University teaching experience; evidence of research
    scholarship; an earned doctorate in health education, exercise science, or
    a related field by Fall 2005; experience working with community groups on
    health and fitness promotion projects; willingness to work in a culturally
    diverse environment; and an understanding of and commitment to support the
    mission of the University are required.

    We particularly encourage minority and women applicants for all
    positions. The University of San Francisco is an Equal Opportunity and
    Affirmative Action Employer, and provides reasonable accommodations to
    individuals with disabilities upon request.

    Applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae,
    graduate transcripts, brief description of research plans, statement of
    teaching philosophy, evidence of teaching ability (including student
    evaluations), and three letters of recommendation to:
