This is an open-rank search, and applicants at all levels (full, associate, or assistant) are welcome. Individuals are sought who will demonstrate excellence in basic, applied, or translational research on health management, sport management or other health-related disciplines in Kinesiology. We seek applicants passionate about impactful science, training, and service. Located on the flagship campus of the Indiana University system, SPH-B has over 200 faculty in five departments.

Areas of special interest include health management, sport management, lifestyle health behavior (exercise, childhood physical activity, aging, nonpharmacologic therapies and models to promote health; health equity and social determinants of health, among other areas linked to kinesiology). All research areas related to kinesiology will be considered, with preference given to research that is collaborative, synergistic with other SPH-B and Indiana University faculty, and which aligns with major funding priorities.

The successful candidate will be instrumental in growing the department’s culture of collaborative, impactful research, and will lead or contribute to applications for centers of excellence, research training programs, and similar collaborative initiatives to enhance our research infrastructure.

The department has over 43 full-time faculty including 19 tenured/tenure-track faculty conducting research on exercise physiology, biomechanics, applied physiology, neuromuscular control of movement, athletic training, and physical activity.
