ALTIS Director of Education

In August, we told you about our upcoming Sport Science Project – the ALTIS ISODIOL Living Lab.

We can now confirm that not only are we looking for the right person to lead this Project, but have also established a Board of Advisors to help guide its overall function & direction. You will be hard-pressed to find a more high-powered group of sport science professionals anywhere on the planet, and we cannot thank these great folks enough for agreeing to be involved.

This heavy-hitting group have unique and diverse backgrounds, and have all worked in high-performance sport for at least a decade:

Dr. Matt Jordan
Dr. Jeremy Koenig
Dr. Trent Stellingwerff
Dr. David Putrino
Dr. Sophia Nimphius
Dr. Rob Gray
Dr. Ken Clark

The ALTIS Isodiol Living Lab Board of Advisors will act as a ‘steering committee’ of sorts. The Board will work with ALTIS sport science staff, coaches, and a world-class athlete population. All in an environment that affords an authentic opportunity to generate new knowledge by exploring, experimenting, and evaluating new ideas within the natural sporting ecosystem.

While the primary motivation of the ALTIS Isodiol Living Lab is to offer an improved service to our athlete population, there is also an opportunity to make a significant contribution to the sport science and coaching communities as a whole.

With that being said, we are excited to announce that we have now opened the recruiting process for an INNOVATION & RESEARCH DIRECTOR – ALTIS ISODIOL LIVING LAB. The successful candidate will work with the Board of Advisors to initiate an inter-disciplinary plan to imbed sport-science research into our elite track & field environment.

Please see the full Job Posting here.

As a concept that has been in discussion for some time, ALTIS CEO Stuart McMillan is keen to crack on with the ALTIS Isodiol Living Lab: “Firstly, we are so appreciative of Isodiol for being forward-thinking enough to fund this project. Secondly – as it relates to this role specifically we feel that with the opportunity to work with an elite coaching and athlete population, with assistance from an awesome Board of Advisors, this is truly a unique position in the sporting world. We are confident that we can attract some great candidates.”

We are looking forward to hearing from some excellent candidates. Get in touch!
