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 ˝ year NHMRC funded project. Briefly, the
project is investigating the biomechanical and neuromuscular changes that
occur as the result a training intervention with community level 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. Tim Doyle
(tim.doyle@uwa.edu.au ). After consideration
of the applicant’s suitability you will be asked to apply for and obtain an
APA/UPA scholarship (see
http://www.scholarships.uwa.edu.au/home/postgrad/general/australian_postgrad
uate_awards
). In 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.
Applications close 31st October, 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
