    PhD Research Assistantship

    Applications are invited for a PhD research assistantship in
    Biomechanics and Human Motion Analysis at University of North Carolina
    at Charlotte. The research will focus on assessing the internal force of
    knee joint during rehabilitation exercises and other activities The
    purpose of this study is to understand the internal joint movement,
    tensions on cruciate ligament, cartilage contact and pressure of the
    knee joints of ACL-intact, ACL-reconstructed subjects during
    rehabilitation exercises and daily activities. The results of the study
    will provide guidance for designing patient-specific rehabilitation
    programs, improve our understanding premature knee osteoarthritis of
    subjects with reconstructed ACL, and bring benefits to many patients
    under rehabilitation and recovered from a knee injury. The study will be
    carried out in our new Biomotion lab which has state-of-art equipment
    including a 10 camera motion capture system, two force platforms, a
    wireless electromyography system and excellent computing facilities.
    This multidisciplinary project is supported by famous orthopaedic
    surgeons, sports medicine physicians, physical therapists and biomedical
    engineers. You may find more info regarding our research at

    The PhD research assistantship includes tuition and other fees and a
    standard annual stipend ($18,000 for 2008-09).
