Australian Postgraduate Award (Industry) on Rowing Simulation

This scholarship is funded by an ARC Linkage-Projects grant and will
provide support for 3 years on a full-time basis for a research project
leading to a PhD. The research undertaken will produce a "specification" of
on-water rowing by characterising the magnitude and timing of the forces
and moments experienced on-water. Simulator rowing will be
computer-modelled. Rowing simulator agreement with this specification will
be tested and modifications suggested for their improvement. The simulator
will be modified and retested. The potential for injury using the simulator
will also be assessed.

Applicants should have an Honours 1 or 2A degree in biomechanics or related
discipline. Experience/background in biomechanical testing and/or computer
modelling would be an advantage. Applicants must be Australian citizens,
Australian permanent residents or New Zealand citizens. The scholarship
stipend is $23,294 in 2003 (tax exempt).
