  Novel machine learning methodologies for human action correction in videos
  Dr C Grosan
Applications accepted all year round
The goal of this research is to motivate patients with disabilities to get better in a faster, easier and fun way. It will apply artificial intelligence methods to a software that turns traditional physical therapy exercises into interactive applications, including video cogniexergames.
  Developing a clinical tool to quantitatively assess and monitor upper limb and shoulder function in clinical and home settings
  Dr A Shaheen
Applications accepted all year round
Upper limb and shoulder disorders are poorly defined, diagnosed and rehabilitated. Current management of these disorders is focussed on the prescription of physiotherapeutic treatments, yet the efficacy of such treatments is not well established and the prognosis of patients with shoulder disorders is very poor.
  Markers of Expertise in Sport and Physical Activity: Triangulated Approaches
  Dr D Broadbent, Dr D Bishop, Dr A Cocks, Dr A Nowicky
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this project is to adopt a mixed methods approach to determine the various factors – innate, learnt, and environmental – that ultimately contribute to skill acquisition and/or expertise within a specified domain.
  Use of inertial sensors for fall prediction in older people
  Dr A Shaheen, Dr A Cocks
Applications accepted all year round
Falls in older people are a common cause of morbidity, mortality and loss of function. The physiological changes to the motor and sensory functions caused by ageing combined with the presence of other age-related diseases put this population at a high risk of falling.
  Long-term effects of targeted strength and conditioning on golf swing performance in talented junior golfers (Project SWING)
  Dr R Lloyd, Dr J Oliver
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
This is an exciting opportunity to apply for a PhD studentship at Cardiff Metropolitan University, which has been designed to examine the long-term effects of strength and conditioning provision on levels of physical fitness and golf swing performance in young golfers enrolled on the Golf Union of Wales talent development pathway.
  Could anti-inflammatory treatment at ACL reconstruction improve biological, functional and clinical outcomes?
  Dr D Mason, Prof C A Holt
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
This project will test the hypothesis that inflammation after ACL reconstruction surgery is detectable in the joint fluids and blood, and reduces joint function and surgical outcomes; and that anti-inflammatory medication reduces inflammation and improves joint function and surgical outcomes.
  Training load, injury and performance in professional football
  Dr S Brown, Dr A McCall
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
This PhD research-industry scholarship represents a unique opportunity to combine research with industry practice.
  Visual search strategies and knowledge elicitation in sports officiating - Project ID SAS0019
  Dr D Mascarenhas, Dr C English
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019
Sports officials’ (referees and umpires) decisions can have a big impact upon the outcome of games. However, our understanding of the processes that officials employ to make quick and accurate decisions is only still in its infancy.
  Novel techniques in molecular metabolism
  Dr B Owen, Dr V Salem
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
The successful applicants will be joining an internationally-renowned research group, within one of the world’s top research universities.
  The design of a treatment package to improve pain, function, activity levels and quality of life for people who have symptomatic hypermobility.
  Prof a McGregor, Dr C Alexander
Application Deadline: 20 May 2019
Symptomatic hypermobility is a spectrum disorder called Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders (HSD) (Castori et al. 2017) and Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (hEDS) (Malfait et al.
