  • Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Faculty Position Opening -University of Waterloo, Canada

    The Department of Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo invites
    applications at the
    Assistant Professor level in the area of Musculoskeletal Biomechanics.
    Areas of research interest
    may include, but are not limited to, musculoskeletal modeling, gait
    analysis, impact, vibration
    exposure, tissue injury, and the study of optimal motion and motor
    patterns. Applicants should
    have a fundamental research focus on the study of both healthy and
    pathological populations
    with some thought given to clinical application. Successful candidates
    are expected to have a
    strong portfolio of scholarly research, including peer-reviewed
    publications, and provide
    evidence of potential for excellence in teaching. In addition to
    advancing a personal research
    program, candidates will have the opportunity to work as part of a
    multidisciplinary team
    engaged in research in human biomechanics. Research opportunities
    exist not only within the
    Department of Kinesiology but also within the Faculty of Applied
    Health Sciences and its
    multiple health research centres, including the recently established
    Centre for Research
    Excellence in Prevention of Musculoskeletal Disorders and the Schlegel-
    UW Research Institute
    for Aging. We welcome biomechanical applicants from fields such as
    neurophysiology, engineering and rehabilitation.
    The Department of Kinesiology is an inter-disciplinary department with
    expertise spanning the
    social to biological study of human movement. The mission of the
    department is to discover and
    explain mechanisms and principles of human movement and to apply this
    knowledge to the
    prevention of illness and injury together with strategies which
    optimize the health and physical
    performance of individuals. The department offers B.Sc., M.Sc. and
    Ph.D. degrees in
