The Biomechanics Laboratory laboratory at Penn State University is seeking applications for
a Ph. D. assistanship in Kinesiology (biomechanics and motor control). The assistantship includes a stipend and tuition waiver.
The amount of the stipend is $ 13,635.00 for for two semesters (half -time appointment) for three years. The stipend for the summer session is $4,539.00.

The research program of the biomechanics laboratory is aimed at the
understanding of the hand biomechanics and control of finger coordination in prehension. Research projects in the
laboratory are funded mostly by the grants from the National Instituter of Health. The research is conducted together with the Motor Control lab and is performed under the guidance of Prof. V. M. Zatsiorsky (biomechanics) and Prof. M.L. Latash (motor control). The laboratory is well equipped tp perform this type of research.


MS in biomechanics, kinesiology, neuroscience, biomedical or biomechanical engineering,
rehabilitation science, cognitieve neuroscience or a related field. Experience in working with LabView and MatLab, as well as experience in biomechanical
measurements (eg motion analysis, EMG) and background in the control
of human motion would be advantageous.

Facility in the English language must be demonstrated by all applicants
whose primary language is not English and who graduated from a
university where the language of instruction and examination was not in
