  • Biomechanics Position Announcement

    The position announcement described below is part of three new academic
    programs provided by The University of Southern Mississippi. The
    undergraduate and graduate programs combine academic and research training
    in polymer science and high performance materials with human performance:
    exercise physiology, kinesiology, and biomechanics. The emphasis is to
    better understand the human-materials interface. A major purpose is to
    prepare professionals at various levels for the materials, sporting goods,
    emergency first responder, and soldier systems industries.

    Assistant/Associate Professor

    The University of Southern Mississippi's School of Human Performance and
    Recreation invites applications for a research tenure-track faculty position
