Both University and Australian Government postgraduate (PhD and Masters
level) scholarships are available for highly motivated Australian or New
Zealand citizens who are keen to pursue research investigating
muscle-tendon and neural adaptations to physical training. Successful
applicants will study at the Centre for Exercise and Sport Science
Research in the School of Exercise, Biomedical and Health Sciences at
Edith Cowan University, Perth, Australia (www.sebhs.ecu.edu.au).
Studies should commence in January 2009.

In the first instance, expressions of interest (see details below) are
invited from students with a significant history of professional and/or
research experience. Students who wish to pursue PhD studies should
have a Masters level degree, whereas those who wish to study at Masters
level should have a good undergraduate and/or Honours degree. Students
with the appropriate level of experience/qualification will then be
guided through the scholarship application process.

Students must have a strong background in sports sciences, physiology,
sports biomechanics or a similar field of study, and be motivated to
examine the factors that underpin optimum human movement and sporting

The scholarships provide tuition fees as well as a tax-free bursary of
AU$20,007 per annum for 2 (Masters level) or 3 (PhD level) years.
Practical and laboratory teaching might also available for those with
good presentation experience in order to supplement this income.

Edith Cowan University is Western Australia's second largest University.
The Joondalup Campus, on which the research centre and the School are
situated, is a 20-minute journey north of the city of Perth and within
minutes of the coastline. The School's research laboratories contain
the latest research technologies, including (among others) real-time
motion analysis systems, telemetry and wired EMG systems, ultrasound
imaging systems, multiple force platforms, magnetic and electrical
(brain, nerve and muscle) stimulation suites, blood and muscle analysis
provisions, and full isokinetic and traditional (isoinertial) physical
training areas. The School has a strong reputation for strength and
conditioning-based research.

Applicants should forward a copy of their curriculum vitae, a cover
letter briefly outlining their experience and goals, their personal
contact details and details for two referees to:
