PhD opportunities

We have a large group of PhD students and are selective in who we would like to join or group. We are interested in those from a health professional, human movement and sports science background, who have an interest in the current project listed above. All PhD projects are jointly agreed with supervisors so that they can add value to and benefit from existing projects and collaborative working with other PhD students and our external partners.

Potential applicants should in the first instance contact one of the two programme leads who will assess the suitability of the application. A SKYPE (or similar) interview will be held to explore your background knowledge and research interests and the extent to which these match those in our team. If discussion progress well you may be asked to submit a Research Application for PhD. A conditional or un-conditional offer will be sent to you upon consideration from the programme team.

Visiting staff and Internships

There are also opportunities for visiting staff and short internships for a period of 1 month to 1 year in order to get some experience of working within the research programme. A bench fee may apply but this is an excellent opportunity to collaborate with us.
