PhD Student Fellowships in Movement and Rehabilitation Science at
Northwestern University

Student fellowships are available for qualified applicants interested in
pursuing PhD level graduate study in a newly established specialization in
Movement and Rehabilitation Science (MRS) within the Northwestern
University Interdepartmental Neuroscience (NUIN) Program beginning in Fall,

The MRS specialization in neuroscience is a PhD level interdisciplinary
focus of study within the NUIN umbrella program. The MRS specialty
comprises faculty and resources from several units including NUIN, the
Department of Physical Therapy and Human Movement Sciences, the Department
of Physiology, the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, the
Department of Biomedical Engineering, and other affiliated units across the
Chicago and Evanston campuses of Northwestern. The laboratories affiliated
with MRS represent a broad array of research interests for fundamental and
clinically applied experimental and modeling studies focused on movement
and its rehabilitation.

Students interested in earning a doctoral degree specialized in Movement
and Rehabilitation Neuroscience apply for admission to Northwestern
University directly through NUIN
(http://www.northwestern.edu/nuin/index.htm). The MRS specialty draws
students from diverse backgrounds and disciplines including physical
therapy, occupational therapy and other health professions, exercise
science, biomechanics, engineering, and the basic sciences. The program
focuses on research training, and content areas are created to match the
interests of both the student and sponsoring faculty member.

All admitted NUIN students specializing in MRS are given a graduate student
fellowship that covers tuition costs and a stipend for living. The stipend
will continue throughout the student's studies provided he/she remains in
good academic standing. Medical insurance is also provided.

Inquiries and further details about the MRS specialization can be obtained
