Brian Gregory Job (born November 29, 1951) is an American former competition swimmer, Olympic medalist, and former world record-holder. At the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City, he won the bronze medal for his third-place finish in the men's 200-meter breaststroke.
As a teenager, he swam for coach George Haines' Santa Clara Swim Club, winning fourteen America Athletic Union (AAU) national titles. He attended Stanford University, where he swam for the Stanford Cardinal swimming and diving team in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) competition. On August 22, 1970, he set a new world record of 2:23.5 in the 200-meter breaststroke, which would stand for almost two years. He was also a member of the U.S. relay team that won the gold medal in the 4×100-meter medley relay at the 1971 Pan American Games. Job qualified for the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, but did not advance beyond the preliminary heats of the 200-meter breaststroke.
