  • Doctoral study at U Tennessee, Knoxville

    The Biomechanics/ Sports Medicine Program in the Department of Exercise,
    Sport, & Leisure Studies at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville is
    seeking highly motivated graduate students to enroll in our doctoral

    Current areas of research interest are as follows. Dr Milner's work
    focuses on lower extremity injury, injury prevention, and
    rehabilitation. This includes overuse injuries in female jumping
    athletes, running injuries, gait after knee replacement, and
    biomechanical risk factors for osteoarthritis progression. Dr. Zhang's
    research interests are in lower extremity functions and impact loading
    attenuation in dynamic activities, injury mechanisms and prevention,
    biomechanical functions of athletic footwear and medical orthoses, human
    performance mechanisms, and performance variability and research design
    in biomechanics research.

    We anticipate financial support being available in the form of graduate
    teaching assistantships. These include a stipend, plus fee-waiver, and
    will be available beginning Fall 2010. Prospective doctoral students
    should contact the faculty member that they are interested in working
    with to discuss areas of research interest.

    Biomechanics Lab:

    Designated as a Carnegie Doctoral/Research Extensive university, UT is
    the oldest, largest and most comprehensive institution of higher
    education in Tennessee. Academic programs on the Knoxville campus
    enroll approximately 20,000 undergraduate students and 6,000 graduate
    students. Detailed information about the University of Tennessee may be
    obtained by visiting the Web site:

    Knoxville is both the oldest and the third-largest city in the state of
    Tennessee (only Memphis and Nashville are larger). On the edge of the
    Great Smoky Mountains National Park, along the Tennessee River, it is
    within a day's drive of many major metropolitan areas, including Atlanta
    and Chicago. The city is connected by 41 miles of Greenways, several of
    which provide access to campus. In addition to the great outdoors,
    Knoxville has a vibrant arts scene, including the Dogwood Arts Festival,
    and Boomsday. For more details of what Knoxville has to offer:
