Graduate Study in Movement Science at UT Austin:

The Movement Science Program in the Department of Kinesiology at the
University of Texas at Austin is actively seeking highly motivated graduate
students interested in pursuing doctoral studies in the biomechanics and
motor control of human movement. Funding is available for qualified

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:
Students are strongly encouraged to contact any individual faculty member
they might be interested in working with to discuss available opportunities
in individual laboratories and the compatibility of the student's research
interest with those of the faculty and program.

Applications for Fall 2006 admissions and financial aid are now being
accepted. Applications should be received no later than February 15, 2006
for students to receive full consideration for financial (TA or RA)
support. 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" 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:
