Ph.D. Fellowship In Biomechanics

The Engineering Biomechanics Laboratory has available immediately a Fellowship
($17,000/year) for pursuing a Ph.D. in Biological Engineering at The University of Georgia (UGA). Included in the funding is a $1,000/year cost of education
supplement. This unique and rigorous program includes advanced coursework in
biological sciences, monthly colloquia, apprenticeship in a biological
laboratory and instructional mentoring. Outstanding graduates from the
physical, applied, biological and engineering sciences who are U.S. citizens
are encouraged to apply. Other Fellowships are available in the areas of
Bioprocessing and Environmental Engineering.

Purpose
The overall objective of this Fellowship program is to provide advanced
engineering education which meets the technical challenges and opportunities
of new biological discoveries. The education will focus on discipline-based
Biological Engineering instead of the traditional practice-based training.

Research
The Engineering Biomechanics Laboratory has several research projects in tissue
biomechanics, biomechanical modeling and gait analysis. The laboratory is
located adjacent to state's research veterinary hospital and has excellent
collaborative activities with faculty in the departments of Orthopaedic
Surgery, Veterinary Pathology and Avian Medicine. Equipment available in
the laboratory include:
- BTS 3-D multicamera tracking system - ATM ground reaction force plates
- Hologic X-Ray Bone Densitometer - VetroDyne loading system for Cells
and Tissues
- Several imaging analysis systems - Flexcell stress culturing system
- SensorMedics VMAS metabolic system

Research opportunities for two other Fellowships include
- Incorporation of biological processes in soil and aquatic systems in
environmental models
- Enhancing biochemical pathways for microbial conversion of biological
materials into chemicals

More information and an application can be obtained from:
