UGA Announces Mote Family Sports Nutrition Fellowship

April 4, 2012

Fellowship Application | Nutrition Page

ATHENS, Ga. ---- The University of Georgia will be offering a Sports Nutrition Fellowship beginning in the summer of 2012 through a donation made by the Mote Family.

The fellow will work with Director of Sports Nutrition Jen Ketterly as well as Sports Nutritionist Maria Breen, and will be a team nutritionist for Olympic sports student-athletes. The program opportunity, the first of its kind, will offer a broad-based clinical practice and be involved with education as well as research involving sports medicine and nutrition.

The post-graduate position is open to registered dietitians and will be a full-time 12-month renewable contract for up to two years, non-benefit eligible. Recruiting will start late spring with a hire to begin in the summer.

UGA alumni Pat and Doyle Mote are advocates of the Olympic sports and the training and development of them. The Motes have also previously endowed a scholarship for UGA women's tennis. Pat is a biology professor in the Atlanta area and Doyle retired from Bell South and now volunteers in the weight room of the Shepherd Center working with injured athletes.

"We've always been interested in fitness and our feeling has always been that if you're going to have a good fitness program in strength and conditioning that you need to have a companion nutrition program to go with it," Doyle Mote said. 

"At the time that Jen Ketterly had come on board, we were very interested that Georgia had hired its first nutritionist and even had two at that time. It really completes the whole idea of fitness. We talked with Carolyn Center and Jen and agreed that we would donate to the fellowship program to get involved with research that will apply to athletes and might have some other implications as well."

With the hiring of a sports nutrition fellow, UGA will be the first school to have three registered dietitians in the athletic department. The university is currently one of only six schools to have two sports nutritionist on staff.

Qualified candidates should electronically submit a letter of interest, resume, and application to hrdept@sports.uga.edu. The University of Georgia is an Affirmative Action Equal Opportunity Employer.
