    Doctoral Assistantship in Kinesiology & Rehabilitation at Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA

    Dr. Ryan McCann, Assistant Professor in Old Dominion University’s School of Physical Therapy & Athletic Training, has one doctoral research assistantship available for the Fall of 2018. Dr. McCann’s research interests include clinical prediction of recurrent injuries in athletes and neuromuscular alterations associated with ankle injuries. As a part of the assessment of neuromuscular alterations, Dr. McCann is acquiring equipment capable of measuring neural excitability via transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and the Hoffman reflex. The doctoral assistantship will provide in-state tuition coverage and a stipend for up to 3 years.

The PhD in Kinesiology & Rehabilitation at ODU is designed for students with a kinesiology/exercise science background as well as rehabilitation professionals (athletic trainers, occupational therapists, physical therapists or speech/language pathologists) who are interested in becoming leaders, teachers and scholars in their respective fields. This inter-professional program features faculty from the College of Health Sciences and the College of Education. The curriculum's core has a focus on motor control and motor learning as applied to the performance of daily functional activities (e.g., balance, gait, reaching and grasping, speech) and sporting activities (e.g., running, tackling), as well as the rehabilitation of individuals with physical or neurological impairments.
