About the Project
PhD Studentship - Physiological responses and adaptations to environmental and exercise stressors in female populations.
The Department of Rehabilitation and Sport Sciences at Bournemouth University are seeking applications from highly motivated candidates to undertake a PhD in the field of exercise physiology. The successful candidate will be expected to provide technical support for staff and students in the Sport and Exercise Science Human Performance Laboratory using specialist exercise physiology software and experimental equipment.
The time will be split 0.6 FTE researching for the doctorate and 0.4 FTE providing technical support.
The project will be co-developed between the student and the supervisory team; however, the overarching aim of the project will be to further our understanding of the physiological responses and adaptations to environmental and exercise stressors in females. Currently, aspects of established physiological responses and adaptations have concentrated on male populations. The female population experiences many additional stressors that require further investigation.
In addition to supporting the paucity of research on female physiological norms during rest and exercise, the student may wish to consider the physiological responses and adaptations to stressors during oral contraception usage, pregnancy or menopause, or in special clinical female populations.
This is a fully-funded PhD studentship which includes a stipend of £15,450 each year to support your living costs.
This project is conditional upon the funding being secured.
