View Full Version : Graduate assistantships in biomechanics

04-19-2010, 11:27 PM
Graduate assistantships are available in the Biomechanics Laboratory of the
Department of Exercise and Sport Science at East Carolina University.
Students will pursue a Master's degree in exercise science / biomechanics
for two years in projects funded in part by the National Institutes of
Health, examining the mechanisms of gait adaptations in aging using 3D
motion analysis and electromyography. The exercise neuroscience studies
focus on the motor cortical mechanisms of acute and chronic adaptations to
exercise using transcranial magnetic brain stimulation in humans. Stipend is
$3,750/semester. Outstanding applicants (GPA > 3.5, GRE verbal +
quantitative > 1100, GMAT > 570, MAT > 402), are eligible to apply for a
$4,000 Graduate Scholar Award. Apply at http://www.ecu.edu/gradschool/ and
