  • Graduate Fellowship Opportunity at The University of Texas atAustin

    A diversity mentoring graduate fellowship is available in the
    Movement Science Program at The University of Texas at Austin
    (Department of Kinesiology and Health Education) for an entering
    masters or doctoral student in Fall 2009. The faculty mentor is Dr.
    Larry Abraham, who specializes in biomechanical and neural factors
    influencing human movement coordination. This fellowship is for the
    2009-2010 academic year, and includes a stipend of $16,000 and
    additional funds towards medical benefits and tuition and fees, so
    that the entire award is over $23,000. A small amount of money may
    also be available for the successful applicant to visit our campus in
    late spring. Support for subsequent years is expected to derive from
    graduate research and/or teaching assistantships. Current research
    in Dr. Abraham's lab is focusing on analysis of precision grip and
    pinch control in assessing healthy and clinical motor systems, and
    plans for future work include using motor skill performance
    assessment to detect motor consequences of traumatic brain injury,
    including efficacy of treatment and recovery. More information about
    the graduate program in Movement Science at UTAustin is available at This fellowship reflects the
    desire of the University to recruit and support a diverse student
    body. Although in general applications to enter the program in the
    Fall semester are expected to be complete by January 15, applicants
    for this fellowship may apply through January 31, 2009. Questions
    should be sent to Dr. Abraham at
