Pepperdine University's Seaver College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences, located in Malibu, California, invites applications for a tenure-track appointment as an Assistant Professor of Sports Medicine beginning August 1, 2023. Applicants must have a completed Ph.D. with expertise in human physiology by August 2023. If you are seeking a tenure line faculty appointment as a scholar/educator at a premier Christian university committed to the highest standards of the liberal arts and kinesiology, then we encourage you to apply.
Successful candidates will actively contribute to a rigorous curriculum in the exercise sciences. In addition to expertise and the ability to teach human physiology, candidates must have demonstrated doctoral/post-doctoral preparation for teaching undergraduate coursework in one or more of the following additional areas in exercise science: human anatomy, exercise physiology, sports nutrition, or biostatistics/research methods. In addition to teaching expectations, candidates are expected to establish a productive research program that involves undergraduate students. Current research interests in the department include human performance in hypoxia, neuromotor behavior in pediatric populations, exercise during the perinatal period, and the intersection of biomechanics and kinesiophobia. Candidates with a research agenda that incorporates nutrition and/or supplementation in healthy people and elite athletes are desired. Well-equipped exercise science laboratories are available for teaching and research. Scholarly collaboration among Sports Medicine faculty as well as with faculty from other disciplines (e.g., biology, chemistry, nutrition, etc.) is encouraged.
As teaching is our foremost emphasis at Seaver College, candidates should demonstrate exceptional interest and effectiveness in teaching and mentoring undergraduate students. Successful candidates will demonstrate an active commitment to the Christian mission and values of the University and the mission of Seaver College. The Department and University are broadly committed to belonging, equity, and inclusion and we especially welcome applications from candidates who are committed to advancing these ideals.
