The University of Southern California
Department of Exercise Science

Position: Applications are invited for a tenure track faculty position at
the Assistant Professor level in the Department of Exercise Science, with a
possible secondary appointment in NIBS (Neural Informational & Behavioral
Sciences), commencing July 1, 1999.

Qualifications: Applicants must hold an earned Ph.D. degree relevant to the
area of muscle mechanics. The research orientation may be from any of a
number of perspectives, e.g. physiological, molecular, neuromuscular, or
biomechanical. Candidates must demonstrate evidence of scholarly
productivity and potential for external funding. Post-doctoral experience
is highly desired.

Responsibilities: The successful candidate's responsibilities will include
development of an independent research laboratory, publication in
peer-reviewed journals, acquisition of external funding for research,

able to work effectively and cohesively with other teaching, research, and
administrative personnel.

Department: The Department of Exercise Science is located within the
College of Letters, Arts and Sciences and offers both undergraduate and
graduate degrees in Exercise Science. The undergraduate degree program leads
to a B.S. in Exercise Science. At that level we strive to provide our
predominantly pre-health students with an in depth understanding of human
physiological systems and their response to stress. At the graduate level
the focus is on Ph.D. level work in the areas of biomechanics, physiology
and psychology. The Doctoral degree program is based on externally funded
research programs and is designed to produce strong, independent academic

Application: Provide a letter of interest including research goals and
