Announcing 2 assistantships for PhD at the University of North Carolina at
Greensboro
1.Ph.D. in Sports Medicine: Clinical Research Assistantship
2.Graduate Teaching / Research Assistantship Applied Neuromechanics
Research Laboratory


1. Ph.D. in Sports Medicine: Clinical Research Assistantship
Applications are invited for a clinical / research assistantship for
students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in Sports Medicine through the
Department of Exercise and Sport Science. Primary responsibilities of this
assistantship are split between providing clinical athletic training
services to student-dancers in the Department of Dance, and assisting with
ongoing laboratory research related to lower extremity injury risk.
Individuals who are BOC Certified Athletic Trainers with a background in
kinesiology, biomechanics, motor control, or related fields are invited to
apply.
This position compliments the broad research agenda within the Applied
Neuromechanics Research Laboratory related to gender, injury risk, and
neuromuscular and biomechanical control of joint stability. Ongoing
research includes the influence of gender, hormones, fatigue and lower
extremity alignment on knee joint function, landing mechanics, and motor
control strategies. Opportunities also exist for collaboration with other
clinicians and researchers across disciplines through the School?s Center
for Women?s Health and Wellness.
Successful candidates should have completed their masters degree in an
appropriate field of study, have the clinical expertise and interest to
work independently in providing athletic training services to
student-dancers within the department of dance for 10 hours/week, have
research interests within the breadth of the laboratory research agenda,
and be highly motivated to develop their independent research, writing,
and presentation skills. The comprehensive plan of study will also
provide experiences in teaching, student mentoring, and grant writing.
For more information about the PhD Specialization in Sports Medicine,
please visit. http://www.uncg.edu/ess/anrl/index.html. Information
available at this site includes the Ph.D. program of study, faculty and
student bios and research interests, the laboratory research agenda, as
well as recent publications and on-going projects. General information
and admission requirements for PhD programs in the Department of Exercise
and Sport Science can be found at http://www.uncg.edu/ess/TBL-CONT.html.
Interested candidates are also asked to forward a letter of interest,
curriculum vitae and 3 letters of references (supporting both the
candidate?s clinical experience and academic potential) directly to the
address below. Review of complete applications will begin early January.

2. Graduate Teaching / Research Assistantship Applied Neuromechanics
Research Laboratory
Applications are invited for a graduate research / teaching assistantship
for students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in Sports Medicine through the
Department of Exercise and Sport Science. This funded position will assist
with teaching in the Department of Exercise and Sport Science and assist
with ongoing research related to gender dependent risk factors in knee
stability and anterior cruciate ligament injury risk. Individuals with a
background in kinesiology, biomechanics, motor control, or related fields
are invited to apply.

The Applied Neuromechanics Research Laboratory provides research
opportunities for faculty and graduate students in the masters and
doctoral degree programs in Athletic Training, Sports Medicine and Motor
Control (http://www.uncg.edu/ess/anrl/). The laboratory includes state of
the art instrumentation for assessment of human neuromuscular performance,
as well as kinematic and kinetic analyses. These measurement tools are
interfaced with a variety of custom devices for analyzing knee joint
function in response to sudden loading. Ongoing research includes the
assessment of neuromuscular and biomechanical function of the knee as a
function of gender, hormones, lower extremity alignment, and fatigue.
Opportunities also exist for collaboration with clinicians and researchers
across disciplines through the School?s Center for Women?s Health and
Wellness (http://www.uncg.edu/hhp/cwhw/).

Successful candidates should have completed their masters degree in an
appropriate field of study, have the clinical expertise and research
interests within the breadth of the laboratory research agenda, and be
highly motivated to develop their independent research, writing, and
presentation skills. Candidates with 3-5 of clinical experience preferred.
The comprehensive plan of study will also provide experiences in
teaching, student mentoring, and grant writing.

Information about the PhD Specialization in Sports Medicine, including the
Ph.D. program of study, faculty bios, laboratory facilities, recent

requirements for PhD programs in the Exercise and Sport Science can be
found at http://www.uncg.edu/ess/TBL-CONT.html. Interested candidates are
also asked to forward a letter of interest, curriculum vitae and 3 letters
of references (supporting the candidates academic and research potential)
directly to Dr. Sandra J. Shultz at the address below. Review of complete
applications will begin February 1st.
