Sport / Kinesiology 2009-2010


  • If you are applying for academic jobs in any aspect of sport studies / Kinesiology during the 2009-2010 school year, this wiki is for you. This wiki allows job applicants to share their updates with each other. Through this collaborative effort, job searchers can provide the latest news on the dates and status of phone interviews, conference interviews, campus visits, job offers, and acceptance of job offers. As we work together, we can help keep search committees more honest.
  • Our goal is to list below all known open searches by topical specialization. Please check the below job listing web sites frequently and add new searches as they appear on the Internet. Try to match, as closely as possible, each job with one or more of the below categories. In some instances, an open search may need to be listed in more than spot below. Consider adding a link to the job announcement so that other users can find the job description quickly. Please start each new sub-entry with a "star." When adding news about a search, finish your note with the date in parentheses. This keeps entries easy to read and makes development over time more clear. Thanks!
  • Important note to all posters: do not update these sites from a campus computer or wifi signal. All additions and edits record an IP address, and the IP addresses for all colleges and universities can be looked up very easily. Post from home or another wifi signal that is not traceable. It is unlikely that Search Committee members would bother tracking down such information, but some are definitely opposed to the wiki, so just post sensibly.
