Five (5) Month Term Position

The Department of Applied Human Sciences invites applications from candidates for a five-month term position in Kinesiology (December 1, 2016-April 30, 2017). This appointment is subject to final budgetary approval.

Applicants must have a Master’s degree in Kinesiology or related field (doctoral degree preferred). The successful candidate will have teaching experience at the undergraduate level. Applicants should be able to teach core courses in exercise physiology; however, the ability to teach broadly within the discipline of Kinesiology is desirable (eg Introduction to Kinesiology, Human Physiology, Nutrition for Fitness and Sport, Physical Activity and Ageing). In addition, the successful applicant will be expected to contribute to service within the department.

The Department of Applied Human Sciences is an innovative, interdisciplinary department that offers undergraduate degrees in Foods & Nutrition and Kinesiology. We offer a number of practical options for students that include an integrated dietetic internship and field placements.

Start Date: December 1, 2016

End Date: April 30, 2017

Application Instructions:

Applicants should submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy (including a list of courses taught and teaching evaluations) to the address below. They should also provide the names and contact information of three references.
