PhD Position, School of Kinesiology, University of Michigan

The Musculoskeletal Biomechanics and Imaging Laboratory, led by Dr. David Lipps, at the University of Michigan is actively seeking a new doctoral student in the School of Kinesiology. Exceptional candidates will be considered for full funding through a teaching or research assistantship.

Our laboratory is pursuing numerous projects related to quantifying and improving upper extremity function in breast cancer survivors. Potential projects for this student including (i) identifying neuromuscular impairments following a variety of breast cancer treatments or (ii) leading clinical trials to improve upper extremity function in breast cancer survivors. These project will involve assessments of patients and healthy controls using biomechanical, electromyographic, and ultrasound imaging-based measurements under the supervision of Prof. David Lipps, Ph.D.

Applicants should have a master’s or bachelor’s degree in kinesiology, exercise science, biomedical engineering, or mechanical engineering. Previous biomechanics research experience, journal publications, high GRE scores, and a high GPA from previous academic work are highly desirable. The student will need to gain admittance to the University of Michigan Movement Science doctoral program for Fall 2018. Students are encouraged to submit an application in advance of the Feb. 1 deadline for full consideration of funding.
