  • Motor control and biomechanics study at The University of Michigan

    Graduate Program in Movement Science at The University of Michigan

    The Department of Movement Science at The University of Michigan has
    recently expanded their faculty and is actively recruiting students to join
    their graduate program. Recent additions to the department faculty include
    three new asistant professors in exercise physiology and biomechanics.
    Expansion of the department also includes substantial laboratory
    renovations and additions providing state of the art research facilities
    for faculty and students. Fellowships, graduate student assistantships,
    and research appointments are available for highly qualified students.
    Potential applicants should contact Carrie Stein, Student Services
    Associate at or (734) 764-1343.

    Specific research interests of the Movement Science faculty are listed
    below. Several members within the department focus on motor learning and
    control using neurophysiology, biomechanics, and dynamic systems theory
    perspectives. More detailed information can be found at the UM Division of
    Kinesiology web site (
