  • New PhD and assistantships available in Kinesiology & Rehabilitation at ODU, VA, USA

    In the fall of 2016 a new doctoral program in Kinesiology and Rehabilitation will be starting at Old Dominion University (ODU), Norfolk, VA. This interdisciplinary and inter-professional program has been designed for students from the field of Kinesiology and clinicians (e.g., Athletic Trainers, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, or Speech and Language Pathologists) who are interested in understanding movement control in healthy, aging and patient populations, as well as rehabilitation of movement disorders. Our goal is to train students to become researchers, faculty members and leaders in their profession. We are looking for highly motivated students who are interested in developing their research skills and understanding of movement control and biomechanics in healthy, aging and patient populations. Assistantships are available and will depend on the fit of the candidate with the particular responsibilities.

    Faculty in our program include researchers with Motor Control/Learning and Biomechanics backgrounds, Athletic Trainers, Physical Therapists, and Speech and Language Pathologists. To find out more about our facilities, faculty and research interests please check out the following websites:

    Old Dominion University’s College of Health Sciences recently received state approval for a Ph.D. program in kinesiology and rehabilitation. The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia gave the degree request the go-ahead and student applications are currently being accepted.

    More will be forthcoming about this new program on the ODU website, but please contact us if you wish to receive more information or you have any questions.

    Minimum qualifications include: a Master degree in a related field or DPT and a GPA of 3.0 or above. A strong background in Athletic Training, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech and Language Pathology, Motor Control, Kinesiology, and/or Biomechanics is highly desirable, as is clinical rehabilitation training and experience. Preference will be given to candidate(s) who demonstrate effective communication and strong computational skills (physics, computer programming, etc.). Applicants are required to be fluent in English and have undertaken the GRE.

    We currently have opportunities for graduate assistantships for qualified individuals to start in the fall of 2016. The deadline for applications is March 31st.
