Hi-I'm not sure if this is "legal" (and I didn't see any other place to post it)...but we have a job opportunity at West Virginia University that's mountain biking-related. Here's the link to the full job description:*78D4D0DC8F295B96

The job is basically developing science-based curriculum specific to "the science behind the sport" of mountain biking and ziplining. Here's the brief description...

This position supports WVU's new science and engineering outreach initiative of the Office of the Provost. The incumbent will develop and deliver an innovative "science behind the sport" educational curriculum and activities for mountain biking and zip lines at the Summit Bechtel Scouting Reserve and develop and deliver complementary educational programs that reach the youth of West Virginia. Additionally, incumbent will create curriculum and supporting activities, develop instructional material that coordinates educational content and incorporates current technology for student learning.

The incumbent serves as a resource contact. Depth of knowledge, technical skills and interpretive abilities, as well as some creativity, are required to successfully perform duties.
