  • Funded Master's Degree at Oakland University (Rochester, MI), Fall 2020

    The BEAR Lab (Biomechanics for Ergonomics and Abilities Research), in the Department of Human Movement Science at Oakland University in Rochester, MI is seeking highly motivated graduate students interested in pursuing a Masterís degree in Exercise Science starting in Fall 2020.

    Current Lab Goals:
    • Evaluate posture and gait in healthy and clinical populations including autism and osteoarthritis
    • Investigate development of motor skills (e.g. walking, jumping, and throwing) in young children
    • Develop novel methods to assess human movement using technology (e.g. motion detectors and eye tracking) and computational techniques (e.g. nonlinear dynamics and computer vision)

    Funding is available in the form of teaching and research assistantships.

    Information regarding the application process can be found at:

    In the School of Health Sciences, this program combines biomechanics, exercise physiology, and rehabilitation principles to prepare professionals for research and clinical careers that involve data acquisition/analysis for the assessment and evaluation of motor performance in clinical and sport/exercise-related environments. This degree is ideal for individuals seeking to pursue doctorate degrees with clinical or basic scientific goals.

    Information regarding the program can be found at:

    Applicants should have
    • Evidence or interest in mechanical/neurological principles of human motion, including motion analysis, force development and application, muscle activation and clinical research.
    • A bachelor degree in one of the following fields: kinesiology, exercise science, athletic training, biomedical or mechanical engineering, or other exercise science related field.
    • A GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale
    • Strong oral and written communication skills including computer skills.
    • For students with English as a second language, the Test of English as a Foreign Language must be completed
