Department or Program Summary

The UO Department of Human Physiology is home to undergraduate and graduate students who desire strong training in human physiology and anatomy that will prepare them for careers in medicine, allied health professions, and biomedical research.

At the undergraduate level, future researchers, educators, physicians, physical therapists and other health care providers receive comprehensive, multidisciplinary training in the physical, biological, and chemical sciences that prepares them well for entrance into most professional health care-related programs. Human Physiology students also examine the health sciences from a perspective that explores the functional and structural mechanisms underlying human movement across health and disease, using a variety of physiological methods, ranging from biochemical and systems techniques through whole body analysis.

The graduate program develops researchers and health professionals who are creative thinkers and innovators capable of generating new knowledge in the physiological sciences. To this end, the department has a number of outstanding, funded laboratories that use physiological and engineering methods to evaluate human subjects under a broad spectrum of experimental conditions. The Department's faculty members recognize that cutting-edge translational research, from basic physiological mechanisms through integrative systems physiology related to health, human movement, and physical activity, has a major influence on disease treatment and prevention. Consequently, in the performance of their research, they routinely work closely with physicians and other clinical personnel.

Minimum Requirements

? PhD in Biomechanics, Physiology, Kinesiology, Exercise Science, Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Neuroscience or related field

?? 2 years postdoctoral research experience

Preferred Qualifications

? Demonstrated commitment and contribution to institutional diversity, equity, and inclusion

?? Previous experience with university-level teaching and service
