Description

Job Summary

The School of Kinesiology at the University of Michigan is pleased to announce a strategic hiring initiative targeting several emerging and multidisciplinary themes. As part of this initiative, we are searching for a scholar who explores the psychological, cultural, and/or social factors associated with human decision-making around sport or physical activity programs and policies. We invite applications and nominations for a tenure-track faculty position at the level of Open Rank. Advanced assistant professors are strongly encouraged to apply.  

As a School, we are building on existing faculty interests to develop a research group in the area of health equity and social change through physical activity and sport. A successful candidate will be expected to participate in this effort, as a foundational member. This initiative is motivated by a vision to expand knowledge of how sport and physical activity programs and policies at the individual, organizational, and/or community levels may address (in)equities/disparities in health and wellbeing, thereby contributing to social change. Examples of potential areas of study include, but are not limited to: partnerships between sport franchises and communities; comprehensive school physical activity programming; physical activity engagement during sporting events; active transportation and healthy living; and sport injury policies in youth.

In addition to the many exciting opportunities within the School of Kinesiology, the School has a strong record of successfully partnering with other academic units within the University - consistent with the culture of the University of Michigan that highly values innovation across disciplines. Faculty members are encouraged to work with experts across campus, and internal funding opportunities exist to support collaborative teams.

Qualifications

A PhD is required. Scholars from different disciplines, whose research centers on human decision making in physical activity and/or sport, are encouraged to apply, including those with training and backgrounds in psychology, decision sciences, economics, marketing, sport management, kinesiology, public health, public policy, and social work.

Assistant Professor candidates should demonstrate academic independence with respect to: 1) publishing high quality, peer reviewed research, 2) mentoring undergraduate and graduate students, and 3) teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in their area of expertise, and 4) seeking research funding. 

At the Associate and Full Professor ranks, candidates should also demonstrate a consistent and ongoing record of securing research funding, and experience and skill in providing leadership that will advance the scholarly excellence of the School of Kinesiology in addition to requirements at the Assistant Professor level above. 

How to Apply

For full consideration, interested candidates should submit the following materials electronically through Interfolio, http://apply.interfolio.com/94922, by January 17, 2022.

The below materials should be consolidated into 1 (one) PDF document before uploading to Interfolio.

General information

The School of Kinesiology at the University of Michigan is the top Kinesiology program in the United States, according to a recent review by the National Academy of Kinesiology. The School is one of 19 independent academic units and one of seven health science schools and colleges within the University of Michigan. The School is led by Dean Lori Ploutz-Snyder, and has 32 tenure-line faculty, 8 clinical-line faculty, 25 part and full-time lecturers, and approximately 1000 undergraduate and graduate students, across four programs (Sport Management, Movement Science, Athletic Training, and Applied Exercise Science). In 2021, our school moved into a newly renovated, state-of-the-art academic and research building (School of Kinesiology Building), located in the heart of the University of Michigan’s main campus. The $120,000,000 renovation project expanded the School of Kinesiology’s research, classroom, and office space to approximately 250,000 sq ft.

The School celebrates, and is committed to, the ideals of diversity, equity, and inclusion and believe that they enrich the learning environment and enhance the school’s innovation and overall productivity; review more detail about our diversity commitment here.
