The Biomechanics Laboratory at The Pennsylvania State University is
offering two graduate assistanships for the 1998-1999 school year. The
assistanships are for approximately $10,000/year and include a tuition
remission. Areas of research currently being conducted are: hand
biomechanics and finger control in multi-digit tasks, biomechanics of
'natural' standing posture, the response of lumbar invertebral discs to
axial spine compression loads studied in vivo with MRI technique, maximal
power production in human movement, wavelet analysis of EMG recording, and
impact biomechanics. A continuing focus for many of the research projects
will be the biomechanical aspects of motor control problems.
