View Full Version : Graduate Study at University of Maryland

11-12-2008, 11:17 AM
The Cognitive Motor Neuroscience Laboratory at University of Maryland
is looking for highly motivated graduate students interested in human
movement science. The students will be supported by research
assistantships, teaching assistantships, or doctoral fellowships. The
applications are for the Fall semester of 2009. The students will
develop a coherent area of expertise in human movement science by
designing an academic program that includes introductory and advanced
graduate courses in biomechanics, motor control, motor development,
neuroscience, cognitive science, etc. Our Doctoral program is
currently ranked #3 in the U.S. by the American Academy of Kinesiology
and Physical Education (http://www.aakpe.org).
The students who want to be considered for a fellowship or an
assistantship should submit their applications by December 1. All
applications for admission should be received by February 1. The main
considerations for admission are: (a) the course background of the
student (courses taken and/or experience in basic sciences such as
Anatomy, Biomechanics, Computer Science, Mathematics, Mechanics, Motor
Control, Neuroscience, Physics, Physiology, Psychology, etc.); (b) the
student's GRE verbal and quantitative scores, and (c) the student's
record of interest and academic performance. MatLab and LabView as
well as experiences in biomechanical and neurophysiological
measurements would be advantageous. Students from the engineering and
biological sciences are encouraged to apply. International students
are required to demonstrate proficiency in English (TOEFL). For more
information on research and admission, please contact individual
faculty and Joseph Mahan (jmahan@umd.edu; 301.405.2455). More
