The Department of Health and Sport Sciences (HSS) in the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) at the University of Louisville invites applications for a 10-month clinical (term, non-tenure) faculty position. Preferred candidates will hold an advanced doctoral degree in a field related to Human Performance and/or Exercise Physiology and have an excellent record of industry experience and academic teaching experience in a university setting. Candidates with evidence of teaching repertoire in more than one human performance-related area (strength and conditioning, sport science/sport analytics, sport nutrition, environmental physiology, long-term athlete development, etc.) are strongly encouraged to apply. We seek to strengthen the department with a professional who will make a significant scholarly impact on our students, advance the program through service, enhance the college’s urban mission, and expand our partnerships within the College, the University, and the community.


Term (non-tenure) faculty are expected to teach undergraduate Exercise Physiology courses and/or graduate courses in Human Performance (see content area needs below). The provision of a student-focused experience that integrates lecture and practical application with real world experience in a state-of-the-art academic setting is vital to the mission of the Exercise Physiology program. The maintenance of a curriculum that remains in accordance with the program’s accrediting bodies (the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) and the National Strength and Conditioning Association’s Education Recognition Program) is expected. In addition to teaching, faculty are also expected to perform duties in service to the Program, Department, and/or College in accordance with the awarded contract. This may include the following: human performance student internship site placement and management, student advising and mentorship, graduate and undergraduate program leadership, collaborating with community agencies and internship sites, and participating in the ongoing development of the program and/or department. Appointments are typically 10-month periods with the possibility of summer teaching and/or research opportunities.
