  • Ph. D. Assistanships in Biomechanics. Fall 1998.

    The Biomechanics Laboratory at The Pennsylvania State University is
    offering two graduate assistanships for the 1998-1999 school year. The
    assistanships are for approximately $10,000/year and include a tuition
    remission. Areas of research currently being conducted are: hand
    biomechanics and finger control in multi-digit tasks, biomechanics of
    'natural' standing posture, the response of lumbar invertebral discs to
    axial spine compression loads studied in vivo with MRI technique, maximal
    power production in human movement, wavelet analysis of EMG recording, and
    impact biomechanics. A continuing focus for many of the research projects
    will be the biomechanical aspects of motor control problems.
