The Carnegie School of Sport is an increasingly attractive destination for those wanting to work on projects of real-world significance that are co-produced with practitioners, industry experts and policy-makers in the world of sport and physical activity. The School prides itself on its high level of applied research activity and thriving community of over 100 research students working alongside academics with a range of cutting-edge specialisms. Our academics are globally recognised for their research on doping prevention, weight management, sport coaching effectiveness and professional practice, physical activity promotion and equity and difference in PE and sport. In addition, new areas of research strength are emerging including rugby science, performance in extreme environments and healthy ageing.
We welcome applications to our studentship opportunities as well as fee-paying candidates who wish to work with our academic staff on their own research projects.
Our academic staff are pleased to help prospective students develop their research proposals as part of the application process. They are happy for prospective research students to visit the School to see the facilities and to meet academic staff and research students. For any enquiries, please contact Samantha Sherman, Research Support Co-ordinator in the Carnegie School of Sport Office at [email protected].
New to the School of Sport is the Doctor of Professional Practice in Sport (DProf Sport). The DProf Sport integrates part-time doctoral level study with continuing professional practice. It is therefore ideal for those who wish to study at doctoral level whilst maintaining their professional commitments. The programme aims to support experienced professionals working within sport to develop evidence-led solutions to their 'real world' workplace problems and gain a formal qualification at the same time.
