The Department of Kinesiology at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee is seeking motivated graduate students interested in studying Neuromechanics (Biomechanics, Motor Behavior) for our M.S. Kinesiology and Ph.D. Kinesiology programs. The multidisciplinary programs prepare students for careers in higher-education and research. Knowledge and skills in research-related and discipline-specific coursework helps prepare students to address complex real-world health and performance issues and utilize critical thinking skills to generate knowledge and make sound decisions to support continued personal and professional development.

Selected active research in the Neuromechanics area include the mechanics of foot and lower extremity injuries and degenerative joint diseases, development of new motion capture technologies, emergence of leg control in infants, cortical role in visuomotor coupling, motor control/learning under novel sensorimotor conditions, and age-related control of balance and force regulation. Prospective students should identify and contact the faculty member(s) with a research agenda/area of expertise that is consistent with their academic/career goals (See Faculty & Staff at https://uwm.edu/healthsciences/acade...s-kinesiology/).

Department of Kinesiology, M.S. Kinesiology program and Ph.D. Kinesiology program information can be found at http://uwm.edu/healthsciences/academ...s-kinesiology/ and at http://uwm.edu/healthsciences/academ...d-kinesiology/ . Please direct M.S. Kinesiology and Ph.D. Kinesiology questions to Dr. Jinsung Wang (gradkin@uwm.edu).

Several graduate teaching assistant (GTA) positions are available. GTA appointments are half-time (~20 hours per week) and carry a waiver of tuition plus a stipend of approximately $13,750- $16,600 per academic year. For full consideration for a GTA appointment, materials must be received by January 15. A limited number of fellowships and free standing awards may be available to outstanding students. Additionally, research or project assistantships may be available pending individual faculty funding. Only students admitted to the MS or PhD Kinesiology programs will be considered for a GTA appointment.
