    The Biomechanics Research group (located in the School of Human Movement and
    Exercise Science) at the University of Western Australia is currently
    seeking a PhD student to work on 3 Ĺ year NHMRC funded project. Briefly, the
    project is investigating the biomechanical and neuromuscular changes that
    occur as the result a training intervention with community level Australian
    Rules Football players. As well as biomechanical testing the project will
    also use an epidemiological approach to investigate the incidence of injury
    in the participant groups.

    The successful applicant will have a strong background in biomechanical
    testing but must also understand how to use an epidemiological approach to
    investigate the effect of a training program.

    All applicants are first asked to contact Dr. Tim Doyle
    ( ). After consideration
    of the applicantís suitability you will be asked to apply for and obtain an
    APA/UPA scholarship (see

    additional tax-free $5000/year (for up to 3 years) as a top-up scholarship.

    "The modern physicist is a quantum theorist on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
    and a student of gravitational relativity theory on Tuesday, Thursday, and
    Saturday. On Sunday he is neither, but is praying to his God that someone,
    preferably himself, will find the reconciliation between the two views." -
