Title: Ph.D. Graduate Research Assistantship
Location: Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA, USA

One Ph.D. graduate research assistantship sponsored by the Louisiana State
Government is available starting July 1, 2001 for four years. The Healthy
Excellency Fund of Louisiana awarded this research assistantship to the
Occupational Research Center in which the Motor Behavior Lab in the
Department of Kinesiology is included. Research projects will focus on the
factors that influence the stability and variability of locomotion.
Research projects will be conducted using an interdisciplinary approach.
The recipient of this assistantship will be expected to work 20 hours/week
on these research projects.

Students in the Motor Behavior Lab will work with a team of faculty members
from the Department of Kinesiology of the LSU main campus at Baton Rouge,
Department of Orthopaedic Surgery of the LSU Health Science Center at New
Orleans. They will have access to state-of-art facilities for their
research and education needs.

Eligibility: Applicants must meet the academic qualification of the LSU
Graduate School. Preference will be given to those who have a background
in Biomechanics, Mechanics, Motor behavior, Neural Science, Motor control,
or other kinesiology related areas.

The assistantship provides stipend of $16,000 per year (two semesters and
two summer months) with an increment of 5% every year. The assistantship
also includes a waver of out of state tuition fee (in state tuition must be
