The Biomechanics Laboratory at the University of Texas of the Permian
Basin [www.utpb.edu ] is seeking applications for
an MS graduate research assistant in the area of Kinesiology
(biomechanics) [http://www.utpb.edu/reach/kines.htm] starting in the
Fall semester of 2004. It includes a stipend and scholarship. The amount
of the stipend is $8,000 for two semesters and $2,000 for the summer
semester. The amount of the scholarship is $1,000 for Fall and Spring
semesters.


The lab is equipped with a Peak Motus system (3D Optical Capture) with
six 60 Hz cameras with near infra-red LED ring lights, KineCalc custom
formula generation module and the Gait Analysis Template, two AMTI OR6-7
force platforms, an AccuSwayPlus stability platform with Balance
Clinical software package, and a Myopac Jr. eight-channel fiber-optic
hardwired EMG system from Run Technologies, along with DataPac signal
processing software.


The research program of the biomechanics laboratory will concentrate
primarily on studying biomechanics concepts as they relate to the
functional capacity of the elderly. It will be designed for
collaboration with the exercise physiology and motor control research
groups.


Requirements/Skills:

BS in kinesiology, exercise science, human movement or related field.
Experience in kinematic, kinetic, emg data collection and analysis, and
background in the control of human motion would be advantageous.
Computer proficiency is preferred (software and hardware). Coursework
preparation in anatomy and physiology, physics, and/or related
coursework is desired.

Responsibilities:

Assist in setting up and maintaining biomechanics lab, collect and
analyze kinematic, kinetic, and emg data. Primary study will focus on
biomechanical issues of elderly individuals and their functional
capacities.


Admission is contingent upon completion of the graduate entrance
requirements.
