  • Two Kinesiology positions at Dalhousie University

    Two Kinesiology positions available at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova
    Scotia, CANADA.

    Applications are invited for two, full-time probationary tenure track
    positions at the Assistant Professor level in the School of Health and
    Human Performance commencing August 1, 2006.

    The Dalhousie University School of Health and Human Performance is part
    of the Faculty of Health Professions whose mission is to enhance health
    and social well-being through entry-level and advanced professional
    learning opportunities, practice innovation, and leadership in research
    and scholarship.
    In addition to the School of Health and Human Performance, the Faculty
    includes the Schools of Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Nursing,
    Health Services Administration, Human Communication Disorders, Social
    Work, the College of Pharmacy, and the QEII/Dalhousie School of Health
    Sciences, and the Clinical Vision Science program. The School of Health
    and Human Performance offers programs leading to Bachelor of Science and
    Masters degrees in Kinesiology, Health Promotion, Therapeutic
    Recreation, and Recreation Management. Dalhousie University is located
    in Halifax, a small, historic, and culturally active city located in a
    province with substantial lifestyle advantages such as music, theatre,
    festivals, ocean beaches, whale-watching, hiking, and camping.

    For position #1, the successful candidate will have a strongly
    developing record of evidence-based research into the effects of
    physical activity on health. The candidate must also be able to
    contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching in a core area of our
    Kinesiology program. Research and supervision of undergraduate B.Sc.K.
    (Honours) and M.Sc. graduate students is expected.
    Protected research time is a component of assigned faculty workload.
    Excellent opportunities exist for collaboration within the School of
    Health and Human Performance, the Faculty of Health Professions, and
    other areas at Dalhousie including medicine, community health and
    epidemiology, rehabilitation, and biomedical engineering.

    For position #2, the successful candidate will have a strongly
    developing record of research in clinical kinesiology. Preference will
    be given to applicants who can teach kinesiological anatomy and courses
    related to movement and
    injury. Research and supervision of undergraduate B.Sc.K. (Honours)
    and M.Sc.
    graduate students is expected. Protected research time is a component of
    assigned faculty workload. Excellent opportunities exist for
    collaboration within the School of Health and Human Performance, the
    Faculty of Health Professions, and other areas at Dalhousie including
    medicine, community health and epidemiology, rehabilitation, and
    biomedical engineering.

    Requirements for the positions include a completed doctoral degree (or a
    doctoral degree near completion) in kinesiology, or other related area,
    as well as evidence of a strongly developing research and publication
    program.
    Teaching
    experience would be an asset.
