Title: PhD/Graduate Assistantship
Location: University of Western Australia
Date: August, 2006

The Biomechanics Research group (located in the School of Human Movement and
Exercise Science) at the University of Western Australia is currently
seeking a PhD student to work on 3 1/2 year NHMRC funded project. Briefly,
the project is investigating the biomechanical and neuromuscular changes
that occur as the result a training intervention with high-level amateur and
semi-professional Australian Rules Football players. As well as
biomechanical testing the project will also use an epidemiological approach
to investigate the incidence of injury in the participant groups.

The successful applicant will have a strong background in biomechanical
testing but must also understand how to use an epidemiological approach to
investigate the effect of a training program.

All applicants are first asked to contact Dr. David Lloyd
(dlloyd@cyllene.uwa.edu.au). Then with the support of Dr. David Lloyd,
Australian domestic applicants will be asked to apply for and obtain an APA
Scholarship (see
uate_awards) international students will be asked to apply for and obtain an
IPRS (see

addition to the usual tax-free stipends ($19, 231/year in 2006) offered by
these scholarships this position will attract an additional tax-free
$5000/year (for up to 3 years) as a top-up scholarship. Domestic
applications close 31st October, 2006, international applications close 31st
August, 2006.

"The modern physicist is a quantum theorist on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
and a student of gravitational relativity theory on Tuesday, Thursday, and
Saturday. On Sunday he is neither, but is praying to his God that someone,
preferably himself, will find the reconciliation between the two views." -
Norbert Wiener
