A diversity mentoring graduate fellowship is available in the
Movement Science Program at The University of Texas at Austin
(Department of Kinesiology and Health Education) for an entering
masters or doctoral student in Fall 2009. The faculty mentor is Dr.
Larry Abraham, who specializes in biomechanical and neural factors
influencing human movement coordination. This fellowship is for the
2009-2010 academic year, and includes a stipend of $16,000 and
additional funds towards medical benefits and tuition and fees, so
that the entire award is over $23,000. A small amount of money may
also be available for the successful applicant to visit our campus in
late spring. Support for subsequent years is expected to derive from
graduate research and/or teaching assistantships. Current research
in Dr. Abraham's lab is focusing on analysis of precision grip and
pinch control in assessing healthy and clinical motor systems, and
plans for future work include using motor skill performance
assessment to detect motor consequences of traumatic brain injury,
including efficacy of treatment and recovery. More information about
the graduate program in Movement Science at UTAustin is available at
http://www.edb.utexas.edu/mvmtsci/ This fellowship reflects the
desire of the University to recruit and support a diverse student
body. Although in general applications to enter the program in the
Fall semester are expected to be complete by January 15, applicants
for this fellowship may apply through January 31, 2009. Questions
should be sent to Dr. Abraham at l.abraham@mail.utexas.edu
