  • Opportunity for doctoral study

    Funding currently is available through the National Center for Medical
    Rehabilitation Research (NICHHD, NIH) to support doctoral study in the
    Movement Science Program at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.
    Accepted applicants will receive a stipend and tuition waiver.

    The Program in Physical Therapy, under the auspices of the Graduate School
    of Arts and Sciences, is pleased to offer the opportunity for doctoral
    study in Movement Science. The Movement Science Program is a unique
    opportunity for individuals interested in developing research skills and
    leads to the degree "Doctor of Philosophy". This interdisciplinary program
    trains scientists to investigate fundamental and applied aspects of human
    movement from the perspective of the three contributing disciplines of
    biomechanics, bioenergetics, and biocontrol. To achieve this, several other
    departments, including Neurology, Medicine, Engineering, Biology,
    Neuroscience, and Psychology, collaborate with Physical Therapy to offer a
    wide range of educational and research opportunities.

    Additional applicants are sought to be considered for the Fall 1998
    semester. Although several positions are available, specific funding is
    available to work with Michael J. Mueller, PhD, PT on a number of projects
    investigating mechanical factors which contribute to injury on the
    Diabetic Foot.

    Physical Therapists wishing to pursue a doctoral degree (PhD) in the
    Program in Movement Science at Washington University should contact Dr.
    Michael Mueller at (E-mail); or Dr. Shirley
    Sahrmann, the Director of the Graduate Program, at for more information. Additional information is
