  • MS and PhD Fellowships in Biomechanics and Injury Prevention - University of Utah

    The Ergonomics and Safety Group ( in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Utah is seeking motivated graduate students for our M.S. and Ph.D. engineering programs with a focus in injury biomechanics and rehabilitation engineering. These multidisciplinary programs prepare students for careers in design, research, higher education and industry through didactic coursework in the areas of Biomechanics, Ergonomics, Robotics and Controls.

    Selected active research in the areas of biomechanics and motion analysis include the mechanics of lower extremity injuries, development of new motion capture technologies, age-related control of balance and force regulation, fall prevention and assistive robotics.

    Additional details including program information can be found at Interested applicants are also strongly encouraged to contact a faculty member in their area of interest to discuss potential funding and research opportunities.

    Several graduate research assistant (RA) positions are available. RA appointments carry a waiver of tuition plus a stipend of approximately $16,000 - $22,000 per academic year. Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply for the annual graduate student visitation weekend ( Application information must be received by Dec. 1, 2012 to be considered for Grad Visitation Weekend. A limited number of fellowships and free standing awards may be available to outstanding students. Additionally, research or project assistantships may be available pending individual faculty funding.
