Position: Assistant Professor in Exercise Physiology (secondary emphasis in nutrition)

Type: Tenure-Track

Academic Year: 2013/2014 Available: September 2013

Location: Department of Physical Education & Kinesiology
School of Social Sciences and Education
California State University, Bakersfield
9001 Stockdale Hwy, 22 EDUC
Bakersfield, CA 93311-1022

Contact: Ms. Kris Grappendorf, Interim Chair
661-654-2378 (voice) 661-654-2067 (facsimile)

Application Deadline: Monday, February 4, 2013

Specialization: Qualifications: 1) Ph.D. (preferred), or ABD, from an accredited doctoral-granting institution. 2) Record of undergraduate teaching success. 3) Demonstrated commitment to professional and scholarly activity (extramural funding desirable). 4) National certification through NSCA or ASCM are highly desirable.

Responsibilities: CSUB is looking specifically for a dynamic person with knowledge, skills, and abilities to work cooperatively with current faculty in extending the current curriculum, restructuring the baccalaureate degree program, and offering additional research opportunities to serve more effectively an ever-increasing number of majors (currently 300+) representing a diverse student body in a culturally diverse community. Teaching assignments will include, but are not limited to, the following existing courses-Physiology of Exercise, Exercise Testing and Prescription, and Exercise Programming for Fitness and Performance. In addition, the faculty would be expected to teach some courses in the baccalaureate “core,” e.g., Motor Learning, Motor Development, Measurement and Evaluation, and/or Applied Kinesiology. Finally, we would expect the faculty to develop new courses based upon the candidate’s expertise and the program’s current and future needs, e.g., Sports Nutrition.

As a tenure-track Assistant Professor, the candidate must develop, within a normal 6-year probationary period, a sustained record of teaching success (especially at the undergraduate level), research and scholarship (especially involving undergraduate students), and professionally-related service to the community to justify the award of tenure and promotion to Associate Professor.

Compensations: Commensurate with qualifications & experience. CSUB offers a generous benefit package (e.g., excellent health, dental, vision, and retirement benefits).

Applications: Nominations are welcomed and encouraged. Complete applications require the following four (4) items: (1) original and personalized letter of application addressing the above requirements and qualifications; (2) current vitae; (3) copy of university transcripts verifying academic record and award of doctorate (or anticipated award for ABD); and (4) names and contact information (mailing address, email address, and office telephone number) for at least five professionals familiar with your teaching and scholarship records. Nominations and/or applications should be sent to the Search Committee at the above address.

Search Committee will begin reviewing completed applications on/about February 04, 2013 and will continue until the position is filled.
