Likely instructional assignments include undergraduate core (e.g., social-psychology of physical activity) and elective (e.g., exercise psychology and adherence) courses. candidates should have a doctorate in Kinesiology or related discipline. Although candidates completing their dissertation will be considered, preference will be given to candidates with an earned doctorate. A record of teaching at the undergraduate level is very desirable. We value diversity and seek individuals committed to inclusive practices in education and professional practice.
The non-tenure instructional track appointment will be at the rank of Instructor, adjunct Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor level, dependent on qualifications.

The Department. Kinesiology is respected for its undergraduate and graduate programs, research and service to the University. In addition to offering flourishing and rigorous academic programs for its diverse body of students, the Department is well known for its educational service to students across the university at large. This includes the delivery of lecture/lab-located courses in Human Anatomy and Physiology, which serve one of the largest number of students at the university, as well as very popular physical activity courses. Current externally funded research programs focus on mild traumatic brain injury and cardiovascular genomics. Twenty-one full-time faculty and approximately 60 adjunct faculty (primarily serving the physical activity courses) serve the Department.

Realignment is currently underway of Kinesiology’s graduate programs in Athletic Training and the undergraduate program in Health Professions into a new Department of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences.
