    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,
    instruction at the undergraduate and graduate level, and supervision of
    graduate students. Additionally, this individual will be expected to
    contribute to the service of the Department and/or University. Successful
    candidates will have excellent verbal and communication skills and will be
    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
