    PhD. Graduate Assistantship
    Motion Analysis Laboratory
    Biomechanics and Movement Science Program
    University of Delaware

    We are seeking 2 highly motivated students for our multidisciplinary
    doctoral program in Biomechanics and Movement Science. The focus of the
    laboratory is the study of the relationship between lower extremity
    mechanics and injury. Current funded projects include a Dept of the
    Army funded 5 yr prospective study of tibial stress fractures in women.
    In addition, funding for a 5 yr study of the effect of wedged orthoses
    on Knee OA has recently been secured as part of a larger multi-project
    study at UD. A number of studies of foot orthotic intervention are also
    underway. Other areas of interest include the study of biomechanical
    factors associated with the gender bias in ACL injuries. The lab is
    well equipped with a 6 camera, 60/120 Hz VICON motion analysis system
    (with real time capabilities), 2 BERTEC force platforms, accelerometry
    and EMG. The real time system is currently being used to investigate
    the ability to retrain gait patterns in injured runners. A
    fee-for-service running injury clinic is also offered at the lab.

    Candidates with research experience in the areas described will be given
    preference. Candidates with physical therapy backgrounds are also strongly
    encouraged to apply.
