We seek a tenure-track Assistant Professor to join our faculty at a time of growth and expansion. Candidates should have earned a doctorate in Physiology, Kinesiology, or related field, have post-doctoral experience, and a track record of published research. Successful teaching experience is preferred. Primary responsibilities will include conducting nationally visible, funded research in cardiovascular physiology, teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in physiology and related areas, supervising master’s and Ph.D. students, and performing university service. Teaching workload will be appropriate for a research-focused position. Investigators who study vascular physiology/control of blood pressure using basic/preclinical approaches are particularly encouraged to apply (e.g., animal, in vitro, and/or cell culture models). All faculty are expected to contribute to a welcoming campus environment that embraces diversity.

GENERAL INFORMATION: The Department of Kinesiology and Applied Physiology is home to 700 undergraduate students, 59 graduate students, 26 faculty, as well as a PhD program in Applied Physiology. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to be part of the NIH funded Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) in Cardiovascular Health that is housed within the department. NIH defined new investigators are eligible to be included in our renewal application with the potential to receive 3 years of funding for their research.
