POSITION AVAILABLE FOR PHD STUDY - FALL 2008
DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY - UNIVERSITY OF OREGON
The Orthopaedic Biomechanics Lab at the University of Oregon is seeking a doctoral student for a funded position involving both teaching and research responsibilities. The general focus of the lab is in the area of upper extremity biomechanics. The student will be part of a team that is currently working on a NIOSH funded grant to investigate repetitive motion disorders of the shoulder in the workplace. This project is part of a larger effort to understanding the fundamental role played by the rotator cuff musculature in joint proprioception, kinematics and function. More about this grant and other laboratory research can be found at: http://biomechanics.uoregon.edu/obl/
Please contact Dr. Andrew Karduna karduna@uoregon.edu with questions. Students will also need to submit a graduate application to the department of Human Physiology: http://www.uoregon.edu/~hphy/graduate/grad_admissions.php
Admission to our graduate program is on a rolling basis; however, given the lateness in the year, interested students should contact Dr. Karduna as soon as possible.
The University of Oregon is located in Eugene, Oregon, home to more than 145,000 people and Oregon’s third largest city. Within only a few hours drive are the ocean beaches, lakes, rivers, forests, high desert, and the Cascade and Coast mountain ranges. The Willamette River runs through the heart of the city and joins the McKenzie River north of town. Mild winters, long growing seasons and few drastic weather changes are characteristic. Eugene has a high percentage of professionals, including doctors, lawyers, architects, and educators and is home to the Hult Center for the Performing Arts, which regularly hosts the Oregon Bach Festival, the Eugene Symphony, the Eugene Ballet, and the Eugene Opera, among other cultural offerings.
