The Department of Kinesiology within the College of Health and Human Performance at East Carolina University announces a nine-month tenure track position, beginning January or August 2019. Searches are ongoing and will continue until a suitable candidate is found. Interested candidates should submit an online ECU application to ECU Human Resources at www.jobs.ecu.edu.
Duties include providing instruction and mentoring to undergraduate and/or graduate students in the area of exercise physiology (including but not limited to contributing to classes such as Translational Exercise Physiology, Bioenergetics and Independent Research Internships); maintaining a strong publication record examining human health, especially in relation to the positive effects of physical activity/exercise; have, or be developing, an externally funded research program; and engaging in service roles within the university, community and profession. Preference will be given to those with a consistent record of external funding, and demonstrated leadership in supporting doctoral student training and research. Rank will be determined based on the requirements for Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor as described in the ECU Faculty Manual and other relevant documents. Minimum Qualifications: A doctoral degree in Kinesiology or closely related field. Preferred Qualifications: Post-doctoral experience in kinesiology or a closely related field. For additional information about the position, contact Dr. Joe Houmard, Chair of the Search Committee, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Successful candidates for this position will add to the department’s reputation for delivering outstanding student development activities through thoughtfully crafted curriculums in academic programs (B.S. programs in Exercise Physiology, Health Fitness Specialist, Physical Education, and Sports Studies. Graduate programs include an M.S. in Kinesiology (with concentrations in Adapted Physical Education, Biomechanics and Motor Control, Exercise Physiology, Physical Activity Promotion, Sport and Exercise Psychology, and Sport Management), an MAEd/M.A.T. in Physical Education, and a PhD in Bioenergetics and Exercise Science (with concentrations in Biomechanics and Motor Control, Cellular and Molecular Bioenergetics, Exercise Physiology and Behavioral Science, and Nutritional Exercise Physiology). They will also enhance the department’s current research and outreach strengths in adult and pediatric obesity, diabetes, muscle and metabolic dysfunction, and cardiovascular disease (opportunities for collaborative research exist with faculty in the College of Health and Human Performance, Brody School of Medicine, and Departments of Public Health, Psychology, Engineering, and Nutrition Science).
East Carolina University was founded in 1907 and is home to nearly 29,000 students. The University is one of the largest in the University of North Carolina system and is rapidly growing.
The Department of Kinesiology at ECU serves about 1100 students that have declared or intend to declare one of our four undergraduate majors and 100 graduate students.
