  Study of the osmopressor response in human volunteers with and without hypertension
  Dr M Carew, Dr H Moir
Applications accepted all year round
The osmopressor response refers to the increase in blood pressure and associated change in heart rate that occurs in some people after ingestion of water (1).
  Enhancing skin-based interactions with synthetic playing surfaces
  Dr P Theobald
Application Deadline: 20 December 2018
The latest generation of synthetic surfaces include innovative design features that ensures player and ball behaviour closely replicates that observed on natural turf.
  Force platform assessment of vertical jumping: application to monitoring professional team sport athletes
  Dr P Comfort, Dr J McMahon, Dr P Jones
Applications accepted all year round
Vertical jumping (namely squat, countermovement, and drop vertical jumping) is widely used as a method for monitoring athletes’ neuromuscular function in a range of professional team sports.
  Traumatic brain injury in sport: improving personal protective equipment, international testing standards and injury event simulation for particular sports and beyond - Ref: AHUF2018
  Dr A Harland, Dr S Mitchell
Application Deadline: 22 April 2019
Many of the worlds sports governing bodies are actively pursuing research to better understand and reduce the risk of single or multiple traumatic brain injuries resulting in immediate or future impairment.
  Motivation and Health Behaviours: to explore why health goal failures occur despite the presence of motivation
  Dr IM Taylor
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014) and an outstanding 66% of the work of Loughborough’s academic staff who were eligible to be submitted to the REF was judged as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, compared to a national average figure of 43%.
  Investigating the incidence of falls and relationship to motor ability in autistic adults
  Dr E Gowen, Dr E Stanmore, Dr E Poliakoff
Applications accepted all year round
Autism is a life-long developmental condition that affects how a person communicates and interacts with people. In addition to these social symptoms, >70% of autistic individuals show signs of altered motor control such as less accurate eye-hand coordination, unstable balance and abnormal gait patterns.
  The Science of Sports Training c.1800-1940: examining the scientific and health content of training regimes in sport through the ‘long nineteenth century’
  Dr V Heggie
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for a 3-year self-funded* PhD Studentship starting as soon as possible. The history of sports medicine and exercise physiology are significantly understudied topics from the HSTM perspective.
  Impact performance of sports balls – evaluation and simulation - Ref: SM2UF2018
  Dr S Mitchell, Dr A Harland, Dr P Sherratt
Applications accepted all year round
Many sports rely on the consistent performance of a variety of different balls undergoing repeated impacts. The design of these balls, and our understanding of the implications for the objects the interact with (e.g.
  Smartwatches and Activity Trackers – Technology Assessment and Data Science
  Dr S Woolley
Applications accepted all year round
Wearable technology and data science are active and important areas of research. In particular, there is growing interest in the use of wearables for positive outcomes in health and well-being applications.
  Synthetic human body parts for injury phenomena and personal protective equipment performance research - Ref: SMUF2018
  Dr S Mitchell, Dr A Harland, Dr P Sherratt
Applications accepted all year round
Many sports rely on the consistent performance of a variety of different balls undergoing repeated impacts. The design of these balls, and our understanding of the implications for the objects the interact with (e.g.
