Graduate Study in Movement Science at UT Austin:

The Movement Science Program within the Department of Kinesiology at the
University of Texas at Austin is actively seeking highly motivated M.S. and
Ph.D. graduate students interested in studying the biomechanics and motor
control of human movement. Funding is available for qualified individuals.

The University of Texas Department of Kinesiology offers comprehensive
advanced training in the Movement Science leading to both M.S. and Ph.D.
degrees. Students can take advanced level courses in such areas as
Research Methodologies, Biomechanics of Human Movement, Musculoskeletal
Biomechanics, Neuromuscular Bases of Motor Control, Principles of
Neuroscience, Advanced Exercise Physiology, Physiology of Aging, and
more. In addition to the courses offered by the Department of Kinesiology,
students take classes in other areas, such as Biomedical Engineering,
Mechanical Engineering, Biological Sciences, or Psychology. Additional
advanced courses, including research seminars, are also offered. A strong
background in the biological sciences and strong computational skills are
highly desirable. Fluent English is required. More information about the
UT Movement Science program can be found at:

Applications for Fall 2005 admissions and financial aid are now being
accepted. Applications should be received by January 15, 2005 for students
to receive full consideration for ALL financial aid options. The main
considerations for admission to the Movement Science Program are: (a) the
course background of the student (science courses, including Physics,
Mechanics, Mathematics, Anatomy, Physiology, Biomechanics, Motor Control
and Learning, etc.); (b) the student's GRE scores ("quantitative" and
"analytical" scores should preferably be in the 600's or above); and (c)
the student's record of interest and academic performance. Outstanding
students from the biological and engineering sciences are encouraged to
apply. Full detailed application procedures can be found at:
