  • Ph.D. Assitantship at UT Austin

    Dear Colleagues:

    The Nonlinear Biodynamics Lab at the University of Texas at Austin is
    actively seeking highly motivated students interested in pursuing an M.S.
    or Ph.D. degree studying the biomechanics and motor control of walking in
    healthy elderly subjects. The project will involve applying both
    experimental and neuro-musculo-skeletal modeling approaches to
    understanding how humans maintain dynamic stability during walking.

    Qualified students can apply to enter the M.S. or Ph.D. program in either
    the Kinesiology or Biomedical Engineering departments. This position
    provides full tuition, fees, and a stipend and students may start as early
    as Jan. 1, 2003.

    Letters of interest should be received as soon as possible, the search will
    continue until a suitable candidate is found. The main considerations for
    admission are: (a) the course background of the student (science courses,
    including Physics, Mechanics, Mathematics, Anatomy, Physiology,
    Biomechanics, Motor Control and Learning, etc.); (b) the student's GRE
    scores ("quantitative" and "analytical" scores should preferably be in the
    700's); and (c) the student's record of interest and academic performance
    in the biomechanics of human movement. Outstanding students from the
    biological and engineering sciences are encouraged to apply.
