Interested in working in the Biomechanics laboratory?
Graduate students in Physical Therapy have classes in the biomechanics laboratory and participate in research projects during their research practicum courses. Students are encouraged to seek graduate student research funding to help defray costs associated with this project. Many students have been co-authors of manuscripts with faculty mentors. This is an excellent opportunity for students to be involved in cutting edge research.
A select number of undergraduate students also participate in
research activities in the lab. Students who are in their junior
year of their undergraduate degree are ideal candidates where they
participate in data collection, analysis, and computer programming.
This may ultimately lead to a undergraduate research internship
or writing an undergraduate research grant. The results from their
project would be presented at undergraduate research day, state
or national undergraduate research meeting. If you are a student
that is interested in participating in lab activities, please contact
me by phone at 785-8468 or via e-mail at
For both graduate and undergraduate students, this is an excellent opportunity to work in a lab setting related to your interests in human movement research. Experiences may help you reach your career goals.
