  • MS and PhD Assistantships in Ergonomics and Occupational Injury Prevention

    The Ergonomics and Safety Group (http://ergo.mech.utah.edu/) in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Utah is seeking highly motivated 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, Controls, and Injury Epidemiology.

    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 http://mech.utah.edu/academics/grads/. 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, depending on program. 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.

    Please contact Dr. Andrew Merryweather (a.merryweather at utah.edu) for additional information and visit our website at http://www.ergo.mech.utah.edu.
