SuperBike 2003 - An attempt at the World Record for a Human Powered
Vehicle

Applications for Ph.D. fellowships are now being accepted in the areas of
Computational Fluid Dynamics, Composite Materials and Manufacture, Human
Performance and Mechanics. The effort is the preliminary development of a
new machine for a speed record attempt for a human powered vehicle. This
is a ground floor multi-year effort which will result in a Ph.D. in
Mechanical Engineering from Colorado State University and a place on a
world record attempt technical team.

Colorado State University is located in Fort Collins, Colorado. Fort
Collins is a city of 100,000 people located in the front range area of the
Rocky Mountains. The city is located in close proximity to excellent
mountain and road biking and within an easy drive of downhill and
back-country skiing. Colorado State is a Carnegie Class I Research
Institution with a well established graduate research program in
engineering.

Applicants are expected to have an M.S. degree or equivalent level of
course work in Physics, Engineering or related discipline and combined GRE
scores of at least 1900. A total commitment to performing all of the
duties associated with a large scale technology implementation project is
expected. All applicants must be either U.S. citizens or permanent
residents.

Women and minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. Complete
applications are due by November 15, 1997. For further information
