  • Biomechanics research assistantship in Montana

    A research assistantship is immediately available in the Movement
    Science Laboratory at Montana State University. The successful applicant
    will pursue a master's degree in biomechanics working on a project
    currently funded by a private research foundation. This work is focused
    on improving gross motor performance and enhancing the functional
    capacity of children with cerebral palsy who are restricted to
    wheelchairs by applying the intervention of a dynamic seating system.
    The project will require close interaction with clinicians and
    representatives for the wheelchair designer/manufacturer. Applicants
    should have a bachelor's degree in exercise science or kinesiology,
    mechanical or biomedical engineering, or related field. Previous
    research experience is highly desired. Excellent written/verbal
    communication skills will be essential to the project.

    Montana State University was founded in 1893 as a Land Grant University.
    Currently, the University enrolls about 12,000 students and has a
    faculty and staff of 3,525. MSU is located in Bozeman, an extended
    community of about 40,000 nestled in the Rocky Mountains in southwest
    Montana, 90 miles north of Yellowstone National Park. Outdoor
    recreational opportunities are unsurpassed, including day hiking in
    national forests within minutes from campus, backpacking in the many
    forests, national parks, and wilderness areas in the region, fishing in
    the some of the best blue-ribbon trout streams in the United States,
    mountain biking, white water sports, camping, hunting, downhill skiing
    and snowboarding at three nearby outstanding ski areas, and
    cross-country skiing.
