    Graduate Study in Movement Science at UT Austin:

    The Movement Science Program in the Department of Kinesiology at the
    University of Texas at Austin is actively seeking highly motivated graduate
    students interested in pursuing doctoral studies in the biomechanics and
    motor control of human movement. Funding is available for qualified

    The University of Texas Department of Kinesiology offers comprehensive
    advanced training in the Movement Science leading to both M.S. and Ph.D.
    degrees. Students can take advanced level courses in such areas as
    Research Methodologies, Biomechanics of Human Movement, Musculoskeletal
    Biomechanics, Neuromuscular Bases of Motor Control, Principles of
    Neuroscience, Advanced Exercise Physiology, Physiology of Aging, and
    more. In addition to the courses offered by the Department of Kinesiology,
    students take classes in other areas, such as Biomedical Engineering,
    Mechanical Engineering, Biological Sciences, or Psychology. Additional
    advanced courses, including research seminars, are also offered. A strong
    background in the biological sciences and strong computational skills are
    highly desirable. Fluent English is required. More information about the
    UT Movement Science program can be found at:
    Students are strongly encouraged to contact any individual faculty member
    they might be interested in working with to discuss available opportunities
    in individual laboratories and the compatibility of the student's research
    interest with those of the faculty and program.

    Applications for Fall 2006 admissions and financial aid are now being
    accepted. Applications should be received by January 15, 2006 for students
    to receive full consideration for ALL financial aid options. The main
    considerations for admission to the Movement Science Program 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" scores
    should preferably be in the 600's or above); and (c) the student's record
    of interest and academic performance. Outstanding students from the
    biological and engineering sciences are encouraged to apply. Full detailed
    application procedures can be found at:
