  • Cricket/Golf Postgraduate Research

    Dear Biomch-L subscribers,

    The School of Exercise and Sport Science at the University of Sydney intends
    to conduct postgraduate biomechanics research programmes on cricket and
    golf, which would lead to either MSc/PhDs. Two positions could be made
    available. Highly specialised research supervision would be provided in both
    areas, and the candidate would be required to explore advanced aspects of
    technique in terms of performance optimisation and/or injury susceptibility.
    Research protocols have been developed to examine batting, bowling, and full
    swing golf techniques. Please note that certain research ideas,
    methodologies and findings are subject to intellectual property
    restrictions. Testing will involve collaboration with recognised sporting
    organisations, and involve the recruiting of elite subjects.

    A BS or MS degree in Biomechanical/Mechanical/Biomedical Engineering or a
    closely related field (including Physics) is compulsory. Positions for these
    postgraduate positions are intensely competitive. The School of Exercise and
    Sport Science at the University of Sydney intends to become an international
    service provider for cricket and golf biomechanics. This is a unique
    opportunity for biomechanics researchers who are highly dedicated, and wish
    to conduct specialised research in these sports. Note that postgraduate
    positions are open to both international and local students.

    To register your interest, please contact me directly by email and send your
    CV as an attachment.

    I look forward to your correspondence.
