Open-Rank Non-Tenure-Track Faculty Positions in Exercise Science and Kinesiology

Temple University
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • Job Type

The Temple University’s College of Public Health (CPH), an interdisciplinary college devoted to an innovative educational and research environment that brings a transdisciplinary perspective of health, wellness, and social welfare, invites applications for non-tenure track faculty to teach in the exercise and sport science (ESS) and kinesiology programs.

Position and Qualifications. We seek enthusiastic, dedicated professionals with an earned doctorate in a related area. Individuals with teaching experience who are nearing completion of a doctorate are also welcome to apply. Certification (or eligibility) in strength and conditioning (NSCA-CSCS), health and fitness (ACSM- EP-C), and/or clinical exercise (ACSM- CEP or RCEP) is highly desirable. Ideal candidates will also have a strong record of teaching and academic/program leadership. Primary duties for two positions will be teaching neuromuscular EP, nutrient metabolism, performance nutrition and/or personal training in the basic and applied exercise and sport science and general kinesiology core content areas at the undergraduate and graduate levels. We also seek a midcareer or senior faculty to serve as director of the exercise and sport science programs, which includes duties such as teaching Introduction to ESS, supervising the internship program, and facilitating program accreditation and curriculum expansion.


The Department. The Department of Kinesiology is home to a diverse body of 1,300 students in undergraduate and graduate programs in pre-health professions, kinesiology, exercise and sport science, and athletic training. As part of the College’s emphasis on interdisciplinary education, the Departments of Kinesiology and Physical Therapy collaborate on a joint MS and PhD in Neuromotor Science. Kinesiology faculty collaborate with research and clinical colleagues in the CPH as well as the Lewis Katz School of Medicine, Temple University Hospital, Shriners Hospital, and the Department of Bioengineering. Research in the Department is focused on cardiovascular genetics, sport concussion and athletic training, and balance and locomotor control. Facilities have been undergoing major renovations to expand research and classroom facilities. This includes the recently completed NeRVE (Neuromotor Rehabilitation and Virtual Environment) laboratories, consisting of 7 laboratories housing physical therapists, neuroscientists, biomechanists, engineers, mathematicians and kinesiologists dedicated to the understanding of human movement and associated neurological disorders.  

The College. CPH, a constellation of 9 academic units of public health, health profession and social work disciplines, enrolls nearly 5,000 students in more than 50 academic programs taught by more than 160 talented faculty. The College has seen remarkable growth and organizational expansion in the configuration of programs, research profile, increase in rankings, and collaboration across units. The College’s innovative research focuses on medical interventions, social, behavioral, and environmental inquiries, and basic science and is sponsored by NIH, NSF, and other major funding agencies.  

The University. Temple University is an urban, research-intensive university located in Philadelphia. The University is moving up quickly in rankings. For example, Temple is ranked by the National Science Foundation as among the top 100 universities in the country for research expenditures. Temple is the 5th largest provider of professional education in the country and includes Schools of Medicine, Pharmacy, Podiatry, and Dentistry. Temple is located in historic and culturally rich Philadelphia, the nation’s 5th largest city. The city was ranked 3rd by the New York Times as a world tourist destination.
