Ph.D. in Sports Medicine: Clinical Research Assistantship
School of Health and Human Performance
University of North Carolina at Greensboro

Applications are invited for a clinical / research assistantship for
students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in Sports Medicine through the
Department of Exercise and Sport Science. This funded position will focus
on lower extremity injury risk in female athletes, with an emphasis in
dance. Individuals who are NATA BOC certified athletic trainers with a
background in kinesiology, biomechanics, motor control, or related fields
are invited to apply.

This position compliments the broad research agenda of Drs. David Perrin,
Randy Schmitz and Sandy Shultz within the Applied Neuromechanics Research
Laboratory related to gender, lower extremity injury risk, and
neuromuscular and biomechanical control of joint stability. Ongoing
research includes the influence of gender, hormones, fatigue and lower
extremity alignment on knee joint function, landing mechanics, and motor
control strategies. Opportunities also exist for collaboration with other
clinicians and researchers across disciplines through the School's newly
established Center for Women's Health and Wellness.

Successful candidates should have completed their masters degree in an
appropriate field of study, have the clinical expertise and interest to
work independently in providing injury evaluation and care to dance
athletes, have research interests within the breadth of the laboratory
research agenda, and be highly motivated to develop their independent
research, writing, and presentation skills.
