We recruit most of our Ph.D. students through the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Florida. As such, interested students are encouraged to apply for entrance into the biomedical engineering graduate program. Students can be admitted directly into the Ph.D. program with only a Bachelor’s (B.S.) degree. Further information on the application process can be found here.
We also support M.S. students interested in gaining unpaid research experience for course credit. We primarily recruit M.S. students pursuing thesis and non-thesis based research projects through the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering. Occassionally, we support students from other departments, such as those completing internships through the Department of Applied Physiology and Kinesiology.
If you are interested in joining the Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Lab as a graduate student, you are encouraged to contact Dr. Nichols directly via e-mail.
We are always looking for hard-working students who are interested in learning more about the musculoskeletal system and the study of human movement. Undergraduates typically gain the most from their research experience by starting in the lab at the beginning of the semester. As a result, the course registration period is a good time to reflect on whether you will have time for research and inquire about potential opportunities.
If you are interested in joining the Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Lab as an undergraduate researcher, please contact Dr. Nichols directly via e-mail. In your e-mail, please include your major, expected graduation date, and a brief statement (2-5 sentences) explaining why you are interested in joining the lab. Please also attached a copy of your current resume.
