Someone just sent a message to the Sportscience list enquiring about
grad opportunities or jobs for newly-graduating sport-science
students. As in the past, I discarded the message because of the
concern that we would be flooded by such requests. (I replied to the
sender, of course.) But it made me realize that we don't have any
job-related links at sportsci.org for grads or the more experienced
sport scientists and academics.
Below is a list of all the job-related links that people have sent to
the list lately. If anyone has found any of these to be particularly
valuable, or if you have any other links you would recommend, please
let me know. I will then make a page at sportsci.org. If someone
already has a summary of links, I'll point to your site from
While I have your attention... As a moderator of this list, I
recently came in for criticism for asking a person to include
evidence of a lit search in their message requesting information.
The info could easily have been got from a Medline search. I presume
the list in general still wants to keep this policy in place? In
other words, share with us the info you have when you ask for more?
This policy applies only to topics that can be searched.
Sometimes people want info about fitness tests or whatever that would
be available only on SportDiscus. The trouble is, not everyone has
access to SportDiscus, and you can't access if for free on the Web.
In that case, please say that you can't access it, and try to
elaborate your message into something more that just a bald request
for information or references. Tell us what you already know or
suspect, and be specific about the kind of information you want and
why. In other words, make it interesting and scientific. You'll get
a better response that way.
