The Department of Kinesiology at Texas Woman's University (TWU) is currently
seeking graduate assistants interested in biomechanics. TWU is a CO-ED
school and male students are strongly encouraged to apply.

The doctoral program in Kinesiology at TWU was established in as early as
1950s. Exciting developments are currently in progress in the biomechanics
graduate program at TWU. Competent and highly motivated graduate students
(preferrably doctoral students) are all welcome.

The Biomechanics Laboratory at TWU is well-equipped with two 500-Hz video
cameras, four 120-Hz cameras, and six 60-Hz cameras with complete array of
accessories. We currently have two AMTI force plates and a telemetry EMG
system (Noraxon TeleMyo) in use. The Laboratory is housed in a modern
gym-classroom-office complex with its total square footage being 6,300
sq-ft, including two facualty offices, one large office area for the
students, a 'humongous' dedicated data collection room, and several
specialized prep or analysis rooms. The main research emphases of the
Biomechanics Laboratory are human mobility biomechanics and sports
biomechanics. Joint research programs with areas such as PT, dance, adapted
PE are also currently under development. Please visit the Laboratory website
at http://kwon3d.com/twu_biom for more information regarding the program,
research projects, facility and equipment, etc.

Proficiency in math, engineering (mechanics), and/or computer programming is
highly desired but this is not an absolute requirement for admission.
Deficiency areas will be determined by the doctoral advising committee and
students will be required to take their deficiency courses before they start
the main component of the graduate work. International students will be
required to demonstrate their proficiency in English as well. An interview
is required for all the doctoral program applicants, but alternative means
are available for the international students who are currently residing
outside the US.

Those who are interested in the biomechanics program at TWU, please contact
me immediately. I look forward to hearing from many competent and highly
motivated applicants.
