Graduate Assistantship(s)

The Department of Human Kinetics at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has
2 graduate assistantship openings (Master's degree level). Both positions
start August 19, 1996, are 1 year appointments (9 months), and are renewable.

The Department of Human Kinetics offers a Master of Science degree program
emphasizing research in the human movement sciences. This program provides
instruction and research opportunities for students interested in studying the
human under dynamic conditions. The thrust of the curriculum is the
integration of the body of knowledge fundamental to the science of human
movement through study in three of the five subdiscipline areas represented by
faculty in the program (Biomechanics, Motor Control, Exercise Physiology, and
Psychological & Sociological Aspects of physical activity).

Only students accepted to the Human Kinetics graduate program will be
considered for either position. The minimal criteria for admission to the
program include:
1) a combined GRE score of 1000 (quantitative + verbal)
2) an undergraduate grade point average of 2.75 (4 point system)
3) suitable coursework history
Candidates should express their interest in either position by including a
statement and other appropriate information (resume, vita, or narrative
identifying relevant experiences for the appointment of interest) with their
application materials. Contact the Graduate School or the Graduate
Coordinator for materials and procedures (see below).

Position #1:
Biomechanics Teaching Assistant. Primary responsibilities are
associated with the delivery of undergraduate lab sections under the
supervision of the course instructor, consulting with students during
office hours, and assisting with other class administration needs.
Supervisor: Dr. Philip Schot (email: pschot@csd.uwm.edu)

Position #2:
Motor Control Research Assistant. This position involves assisting with
an active NIH-funded research project examining force coordination and

Both positions are 1/2 time appointments and carry an out-of-state tuition
waiver. GAs are required to enroll in a minimum of 6 semester hours to
maintain eligibility. The stipend is approximately $6000 per semester and the
in-state tuition cost is approximately $1700 per semester.
