If you are a prospective graduate student (masters or doctoral-level) interested in working with Dr. Sean Mullen, please send an email with your resume or curriculum vitae to firstname.lastname@example.org. Sean is currently accepting applications from graduate students with interests in any of the following:
- Understanding mechanisms responsible for the reciprocal relationship between exercise and cognitive functioning
- Testing intervention methods that involve exercise and cognitive training (mind-body training)
- Designing research aimed at enhancing exercise adoption and maintenance
- Exploring applications of adjuvant therapies that work in harmony with exercise for the purpose of optimizing health and well-being
Please note: Applications are considered any time of the year. Currently, all graduate students in the ETCL are fully funded on research and/or teaching assistantships and receive a tuition waiver. Students are encouraged to contact Dr. Mullen prior to applying to study in the ETCL as he will be able to clarify the admission process, potential for funding, and whether your interests, experiences and skill-sets are a good “fit” with the lab.
Potential applicants are encouraged to visit the UIUC campus prior to applying for graduate study. Student visitations could be done at any time of year. However, an annual “PhD Recruitment Day” is held by the College of Applied Health Sciences (where the Department of Kinesiology & Community Health and Dr. Mullen’s ETCL are housed). This is usually scheduled in early November and limited funding is also available to help defray travel costs.
