Lecturer in Exercise Sciences

University of Auckland, New Zealand - Exercise Sciences

We are New Zealand’s leading academic programme in Exercise Sciences. Our teaching and research seeks to understand how physical activity changes the human body when it is growing, performing, and how ageing and disease impact being physically active. The Department of Exercise Sciences brings together exercise and sport psychology, movement neuroscience, biomechanics, exercise metabolism, and exercise physiology to investigate the role of exercise and physical activity in sustaining health, improving disease outcomes, and enhancing human performance.

We are seeking a Lecturer to contribute to the development and growth of research, teaching and learning within the Clinical Exercise Physiology (CEP) programme and related areas.

You will be required to demonstrate teaching that is research informed and consistent with relevant professional standards. The appointee will be responsible for course development and coordination. You will have a PhD and postdoctoral experience in Exercise Sciences or a related area and an advanced knowledge of Clinical Exercise Physiology. You will hold, or be eligible to obtain, professional CEP registration, e.g. RCEP (ACSM), CEPNZ, CSEP, or AEP (ESSA). The appointee will be expected to teach clinical skills in a best-practice clinical setting, contribute to coordination and teaching in undergraduate and postgraduate courses and serve as deputy director of the Health and Performance Clinic.
