Doctoral (Ph.D.) Study in Biomedical Engineering at UT Austin -- Applications Due Dec. 1!!:

The U. Texas Nonlinear Biodynamics Lab ( anticipates having two or more funded positions available to start Summer / Fall 2016 to study the biodynamics and motor control of human walking. Specific projects will involve applying advanced virtual reality-based experimental methods to examine how movement coordination and dynamic stability are regulated during human walking in both young and older adults. This project will have applications to identifying the basic neural and biomechanical mechanisms which govern the control of walking, to better understanding the root causes of falling, and to reduce risk of falling in at-risk populations.

Strong computational skills (advanced mathematics (calculus, differential equations, etc.), physics, Matlab (or similar) programming experience) are required. Prior experience with computational analysis of human movement and/or biomechanical data (e.g., gait analysis) is strongly desired.

Doctoral students can pursue degrees through the Department of Biomedical Engineering or the Department of Kinesiology & Health.

If you are interested in learning more about, or applying for these positions, please e-mail the following to Dr. Jonathan Dingwell as a single, compiled PDF file please: a letter of interest, a detailed CV (with list of publications), and names of three references, and GRE and TOEFL (if applicable) scores.
