    Graduate Teaching / Research Assistantship
    Applied Neuromechanics Research Laboratory
    Department of Exercise and Sport Science, University of North Carolina at

    Applications are invited for a graduate research / teaching assistantship
    for students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in Sports Medicine through the
    Department of Exercise and Sport Science. This funded position will assist
    with teaching in the Department of Exercise and Sport Science and assist
    with ongoing research related to gender dependent risk factors in knee
    stability and anterior cruciate ligament injury risk. Individuals with a
    background in kinesiology, biomechanics, motor control, or related fields
    are invited to apply.

    The Applied Neuromechanics Research Laboratory provides research
    opportunities for faculty and graduate students in the masters and
    doctoral degree programs in Athletic Training, Sports Medicine and Motor
    Control ( The laboratory includes state of
    the art instrumentation for assessment of human neuromuscular performance,
    as well as kinematic and kinetic analyses. These measurement tools are
    interfaced with a variety of custom devices for analyzing knee joint
    function in response to sudden loading. Ongoing research includes the
    assessment of neuromuscular and biomechanical function of the knee as a
    function of gender, hormones, lower extremity alignment, and fatigue.
    Opportunities also exist for collaboration with clinicians and researchers
    across disciplines through the School?s Center for Women?s Health and
    Wellness (

    Successful candidates should have completed their masters degree in an
    appropriate field of study, have the clinical expertise and research
    interests within the breadth of the laboratory research agenda, and be
    highly motivated to develop their independent research, writing, and
    presentation skills. Candidates with 3-5 years of clinical experience is
    preferred. The comprehensive plan of study will also provide experiences
    in teaching, mentoring undergraduate research, and grant writing.
