DEPARTMENT OF KINESIOLOGY

 Instructional Faculty in Exercise and Sport Science

At a time when public health has never been more important, the College of Public Health at Temple University is working to solve health complexities for a better tomorrow. As one of the largest colleges of public health in the country, we are home to faculty who specialize in 17 health-related disciplines to prepare researchers, practitioners, and educators to collaborate and address community needs, create evidence-based solutions, and deliver effective, compassionate care. We invite applications to join our team as non-tenure track faculty in the Exercise and Sport Science program beginning August 2021.

Qualifications. We seek enthusiastic, dedicated professionals with backgrounds in exercise physiology, exercise science, or a related field to teach undergraduate and graduate exercise physiology courses and assist with instruction of core Exercise and Sport Science classes. Ideal candidates will have a strong record of teaching undergraduate exercise science, as well as experience coordinating and mentoring student internship experiences. A clinical background and professional certifications are highly desirable. Salary and benefits are competitive and commensurate with credentials and experience. Rank is open at the level of assistant, associate, or full professor dependent on qualifications. We value diversity and seek individuals who are committed to inclusivity in collaborative, interdisciplinary education, research, and practice.

The Program. The Exercise and Sport Science program offers courses on physical fitness and training related to clinical exercise physiology, and conditioning, and healthy, community-based populations. In preparation for careers in these areas of focus, Exercise and Sport Science students have access to recently renovated Exercise and Sport Science labs and are required to complete two internships to enhance their knowledge and skills in health and/or performance-related fitness.

The Department. Kinesiology is respected for its undergraduate and graduate programs, research, and service to the University. The undergraduate program is comprised of degrees in Exercise and Sports Science and Kinesiology, with a graduate program in Integrated Exercise Physiology. The Department is also responsible for delivering courses in anatomy and physiology, as well as physical activity, to the wider university community.

Dr. Mark Stoutenberg, an exercise physiologist who holds an MPH and focuses his research on implementation science for physical activity and lifestyle intervention in community settings, joined Temple as Kinesiology Department Chair July 1, 2020. Under his leadership, the Department is embarking on a bold expansion in developing academic programs that align with the overall public health mission of the College. In addition to strengthening current programs, future academic programs and research initiatives will focus on the intersection of physical activity, nutrition, obesity, and chronic disease prevention with the social determinants of health. Situated in a vibrant, urban environment the Department places a high priority on exploring local public health inequities and working proactively with community partners to address existing health disparities.

The College. Devoted to an interprofessional environment for academic programming and research, the College of Public Health, a CEPH-accredited school of public health, is a constellation of academic units of public health, social work and health profession disciplines, enrolling about 4,200 students. The College’s research focuses on social, behavioral, and environmental inquiries, medical/health interventions, and basic science and is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, and other major funders. The College has a robust Office of Research to assist researchers, including staff in a Center for Community Engaged Research and Practice. We are harnessing the collective energies of our clinical disciplines through an emerging, innovative framework for interprofessional education.

The University. Temple is an urban, research-intensive Carnegie R1 university located in historic and culturally rich Philadelphia, the nation’s 6th largest city. The city was ranked 3rd by the New York Times as a world tourist destination. The National Science Foundation ranks Temple among the top 100 universities in the country for research expenditures.
