11-22-2005, 12:05 AM
The Department of Kinesiology at The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) is actively seeking highly motivated M.S. graduate students interested in studying exercise physiology, strength and conditioning, biomechanics or sports medicine. We have two immediate openings for qualified graduate teaching / graduate research assistantships. Applications must be received by December 30, 2005. Both positions have a starting date of January 17, 2006. Applications will be reviewed upon receipt, and will remain open until filled by qualified candidates.

The Exercise Physiology Laboratory is equipped with a ParvoMedics TrueOne 2400 and a Sensor Medics Vmax 229 metabolic measurement system, a Quinton QStress TM 65 programmable treadmill, a Lode Excalibur programmable cycle ergometer and a YSI 1500 Lactate Analyzer.

The Biomechanics Laboratory is equipped with a Kwon 3d motion analysis system, a Biopac MP150 EMG system, an AMTI force plate, a Biodex System 3 dynamometer and 4 Entran accelerometers for recording MMG signals.

The Athletic Training Laboratory is equipped with state of the art instrumentation for research in therapeutic modalities. Equipment is available for the measurement of surface and intramuscular temperature measurement. The laboratory is equipped with a 16-channel Isothermex, a Megapulse II Diathermy unit, two OmniSound 500 ultrasound machines, two OmniStim 500 electric stimulation machines, a RichMar Combination/Autosound 7.6 unit, two hydrocollators, three Century 2100 TENS units, and one ice machine. This equipment can also easily be integrated with other equipment including the Biodex and Biopac EMG/MMG system.

Graduate Research Assistantships (GRAs) and Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTAs) are available through the Department of Kinesiology. Application forms are available through the departmental web page http://www.uta.edu/coed/kinesiology or by calling the Department of Kinesiology. Assistantships are contingent upon admission to the M.S. program and academic background.

For 2005-2006, graduate assistant salaries are $9,000 for first year students and $10,000 for second year students. Highly qualified students typically receive the Graduate Dean Master's Degree Fellowship, which awards the student with an additional $1,000 per academic year. GRAs and GTAs are responsible to pay for tuition and fees. Both in- and out-of-state graduate assistants pay in-state tuition. UTA's tuition is among the lowest in the nation. Graduate students can obtain an estimate of the cost of tuition and fees by viewing the UTA Office of Finance and Administration website.

Applicants are expected to meet all requirements for admission to The University of Texas at Arlington graduate program http://grad.uta.edu/ . Students with background in exercise science, kinesiology, athletic training, biological science and engineering are encouraged to apply. Interested candidates should send a letter of interest and resume by email to: Dr. Mark Ricard (Ricard@uta.edu ) by December 30, 2005.
