The University of Virginia Department of Kinesiology seeks a scholar with expertise in clinical biomechanics and sports medicine for an open-rank, tenure eligible position at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level. The Department of Kinesiology is housed in the School of Education and Human Development and has strong connections with many other schools that are all located on the same campus, including the School of Medicine and School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.  The successful candidate will demonstrate evidence of expertise in musculoskeletal biomechanics research with clinical sports medicine applications. We expect that the successful candidate will be an innovative scholar who will play a key role in contributing to the exciting and collegial research environment of the Department of Kinesiology, which has a history of excellence in sports medicine research. The successful candidate should have a strong record of interdisciplinary collaboration with sports medicine clinicians and scholars in related disciplines and exhibit a demonstrated commitment to diversity and of advancing understanding and outcomes for underrepresented groups. The Department of Kinesiology is committed to increasing the diversity of its students and faculty and the discovery and application of knowledge in Kinesiology across a broad range of groups.

The primary background of the successful candidate will likely be in Kinesiology, Biomechanics, or a closely related discipline. Possession of clinical credentials as an athletic trainer or physical therapist will be viewed as a strength but is not essential. The successful candidate will have a clear and compelling research agenda and vision for improving the musculoskeletal health of athletes and other physically active individuals. We are particularly interested in a scholar whose expertise lies in the translation of scientific discoveries to applied settings and whose program of research engages important concerns in sports medicine and biomechanics as they may relate to gender, race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status. Senior candidates seeking appointment at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor should have evidence of sustained extramural research funding, while junior candidates seeking appointment as an assistant professor will be expected to seek and obtain such funding. 

The successful candidate will teach in the undergraduate Kinesiology major and graduate programs in Athletic Training and Sports Medicine and contribute to training the next generation of scholars through mentorship of graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. The successful candidate will work collaboratively with colleagues, both within and outside the School of Education & Human Development, to accomplish duties as a faculty member; contribute to institutional service activities at the program, department, school, and/or university level as assigned and to professional service activities; and will attend faculty meetings at the program, department, and School level. Load is set annually between the department chair and faculty member consistent with the School’s Load Planning policy. 

Required Qualifications:

  • Terminal degree in Kinesiology or closely related discipline (PhD, EdD, or equivalent) by the start date of the position
  • Established line of research in musculoskeletal biomechanics and sports medicine
  • Prior college teaching experience
  • Ability to implement a variety of pedagogical techniques appropriate for academically diverse learners
  • Explicit evidence of commitment to diversity and of advancing understanding and outcomes for underrepresented groups

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Evidence of established extramural research funding
  • Research program that prominently involves diverse and underrepresented populations
  • Clinical credentials as an athletic trainer or physical therapist
  • Proven record of collaboration with diverse groups of students and faculty
  • Ability to use technology in innovative ways to enhance instruction

The selected applicant will be required to complete a background check prior to their first day of employment
