  • Graduate Study at University of Maryland

    The Cognitive Motor Neuroscience Laboratory at University of Maryland
    is looking for highly motivated graduate students interested in human
    movement science. The students will be supported by research
    assistantships, teaching assistantships, or doctoral fellowships. The
    applications are for the Fall semester of 2009. The students will
    develop a coherent area of expertise in human movement science by
    designing an academic program that includes introductory and advanced
    graduate courses in biomechanics, motor control, motor development,
    neuroscience, cognitive science, etc. Our Doctoral program is
    currently ranked #3 in the U.S. by the American Academy of Kinesiology
    and Physical Education (
    The students who want to be considered for a fellowship or an
    assistantship should submit their applications by December 1. All
    applications for admission should be received by February 1. The main
    considerations for admission are: (a) the course background of the
    student (courses taken and/or experience in basic sciences such as
    Anatomy, Biomechanics, Computer Science, Mathematics, Mechanics, Motor
    Control, Neuroscience, Physics, Physiology, Psychology, etc.); (b) the
    student's GRE verbal and quantitative scores, and (c) the student's
    record of interest and academic performance. MatLab and LabView as
    well as experiences in biomechanical and neurophysiological
    measurements would be advantageous. Students from the engineering and
    biological sciences are encouraged to apply. International students
    are required to demonstrate proficiency in English (TOEFL). For more
    information on research and admission, please contact individual
    faculty and Joseph Mahan (; 301.405.2455). More
    information can be found at the following webpages.
