  • PhD Student Position - Rehabilitation Science (Biomechanics) - Drexel University

    A PhD student position is available, starting September 2016, in the Biomechanics and Movement Science Lab within the Rehabilitation Science PhD Program at Drexel University (Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science). The focus of the lab is to understand kinematic and kinetic patterns of repetitive use that contribute to the development of upper extremity pathology, in both orthopedic and neurological health conditions. Graduate assistantship with funding for students for up to two years (annual stipend and tuition assistance) is available.

    The successful candidate will participate in research activities investigating: 1) upper extremity function with an emphasis on how scapular mechanics contributes to reaching and daily tasks;
    2) The contribution to movement patterns as well as reaching mechanics in person with chronic neuromuscular and musculoskeletal health conditions; 3) Identification and treatment of underlying neuromusculoskeletal factors associated with rotator cuff disease.

    The Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science has over 9,000 square feet of dedicated research space.
    · Motion Monitor Flock of Birds with 8 mini sensors
    · Delsys Trigno wireless EMG (16 channel)
    · Terason T3000 musculoskeletal ultrasound system
