  • Graduate Research Assistantship Available at Texas Tech University, Lubbock TX

    The Human Performance Laboratory within the Department of Kinesiology & Sport Management at Texas Tech University is currently seeking a graduate assistant to pursue a Master’s degree in Kinesiology and assist with biomechanics/human performance research beginning August 22, 2018.

    The available assistantship will include research-specific responsibilities (20 hrs/week). The student will work alongside Dr. John R. Harry, Assistant Professor and Supervisor of the Human Performance Lab. The assistantship includes a tuition waiver (excluding the state portion of the tuition) and a stipend of approximately $1800/month for 9 months. In addition, there will be an available summer tuition waiver (excluding the state portion of the tuition) and a 1-month stipend totaling approximately $2900.

    The Human Performance Lab is fully equipped for biophysical analyses of human movement. Specific data acquisition systems and training equipment housed in the Human Performance Lab include: a 12-camera three-dimensional motion capture system (Vicon), a 16-channel wireless EMG system (Delsys), four force platforms (AMTI; Bertec), a force-instrumented staircase (AMTI FP-Stairs), an Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill, and a full complement of machine-based and barbell resistance training equipment.

    Dr. Harry’s current research interests include:
    • Assessment and improvement of physical human performance and/or injury potential during jumping and landing
    • Testing of feasible interventions to refine movement performance and control in persons with neurological impairments, notably autism spectrum disorders
    • Identification of distinct performer strategies using single-subject research designs and novel data analysis techniques


    The graduate assistant will be trained to utilize all Human Performance Lab equipment in addition to certain data analysis techniques. It is expected that the graduate assistant will lead data collections and contribute to both data analysis and manuscript preparation.

    Applicants interested in this assistantship should send a 1-page letter of interest, unofficial transcripts, and a copy of their CV/resume to:

    John R. Harry, PhD, CSCS
    Assistant Professor, Human Performance Lab Supervisor
