  • Faculty Position Tenure Track- USC


    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,
    commencing September 1, 2000.

    Qualifications: By the time of appointment, applicants must have
    fulfilled all requirements for their Ph.D. degree. The degree earned
    should be relevant to the areas of muscle mechanics, muscle physiology,
    muscle metabolism, biomechanics and/or any specialization area that would
    be relevant to the current research efforts of the Department of Exercise
    Science at the University of Southern California. 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 communications 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 predominately 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 investigators.

    Application: Provide a letter of interest including research goals and
    teaching philosophy, a current curriculum vitae, three letters of
    references, examples of relevant publications (maximum 3) and a current
    e-mail address, to:
