4 year studentship, covering fees and stipend at RCUK level (£14,553 for 2017-18).
The PhD will start in Oct 2017. Applicants should have, or be expecting to receive, a 2.1 Hons degree in a relevant subject.
As part of the studentship the successful candidate will be required to undertake a minimum of 120 hours Sports and Exercise Sciences demonstrating per annum. The studentship would therefore suit candidates with an interest in teaching.

The PhD is based in the Faculty of Biological Sciences.
