  • PhD Fellowships at ASU

    Ph.D. Fellowships Available at Arizona State University

    NSF Sponsored
    Integrated Graduate Education and Research Training (IGERT)Program on
    Musculoskeletal and Neural Adaptations in Form and Function

    The goal of this IGERT program is to introduce Ph.D. students with diverse
    biological and engineering backgrounds to the challenges of deciphering
    complex phenomena in neuroscience, biomechanics, rehabilitation, and
    musculoskeletal morphology, and to foster interdisciplinary education and
    training in research efforts toward meeting these challenges. Graduate
    training will expand upon two related areas in which participating faculty
    have developed research and teaching collaborations: (1) mechanisms
    underlying neural control of movements, emphasizing hand function and
    locomotion, and (2) evolutionary morphology of the human hand and

    IGERT fellows will work with a team of faculty members from ASU, Barrow
    Neurological Institute and Institute of Human Origins on research projects
    in newly developed multidisciplinary areas. They will have access to
    state-of-art facilities for their research and education needs and
    opportunities to interact with leading scientists.

    We invite motivated students to apply for IGERT Fellowships. Based on
    qualifications of the applicants we expect to award 10-14 fellowships.

    Eligibility: Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of the USA.
    Must have interest in one of the following participating Ph.D. programs at
    ASU: Anthropology, Bioengineering, Biology, or Exercise Science.

    IGERT fellowship provides: Stipend of $15,000 plus tuition waiver and
    allowances for conference travel and research supplies (including a notebook
    Application: In addition to the application material required by each
    graduate program, please also submit a written essay on the goal of your
    graduate education and importance of interdisciplinary approaches toward
    your goal.
