  • PhD Student Fellowships in Movement and Rehabilitation Science atNorthwestern University

    PhD level graduate study is available in a newly established specialization
    in Movement and Rehabilitation Science (MRS) within the Northwestern
    University Interdepartmental Neuroscience (NUIN) umbrella program. The MRS
    specialty comprises faculty and resources from several units including
    NUIN, the Department of Physical Therapy and Human Movement Sciences, the
    Department of Physiology, the Department of Physical Medicine and
    Rehabilitation, the Department of Biomedical Engineering, and other
    affiliated units across the Chicago and Evanston campuses of Northwestern.
    The laboratories affiliated with MRS represent a broad array of research
    interests for fundamental and clinically applied experimental and modeling
    studies focused on movement and its rehabilitation.

    The MRS specialty draws students from diverse backgrounds and disciplines
    including physical therapy, occupational therapy and other health
    professions, exercise science, biomechanics, engineering, and the basic
    sciences. The program focuses on research training, and content areas are
    created to match the interests of both the student and sponsoring faculty

    Students interested in earning a doctoral degree specialized in Movement
    and Rehabilitation Science apply for admission to Northwestern University
    directly through NUIN (
    Applications are currently being accepted and should be received by
    mid-December, and no later than December 31, so they can be processed in
    time for our early January review. Applications will not be accepted after
    December 31, though supporting documents (letters of recommendation,
    transcripts, and such) may be sent later provided the on-line application
    is complete by December 31.

    All admitted NUIN students specializing in MRS are given a graduate student
    fellowship that covers tuition costs and a stipend for living. The stipend
    will continue throughout the student's studies provided he/she remains in
    good academic standing. Medical insurance is also provided.

    Inquiries and further details about the MRS specialization can be obtained
