Project Description

Applications are invited for a self-funded PhD programme based in the Physical Activity Exchange within the world-leading Research Institute for Sport and Exercise Sciences, Liverpool John Moores University.

The focus of this project will be to investigate physical activity in children with intellectual disabilities (ID) and builds upon a successful research programme currently on-going in the Physical Activity Exchange. In comparison to children without intellectual disabilities, children with ID are consistently reported to be less active, therefore effective strategies are needed to promote activity within this population.

Applicants should hold (or expect to gain) an undergraduate degree (2.1 or 1st class) in Physical Activity, Sport and Exercise Science or a closely related discipline. A relevant Master’s degree or experience in a physical activity or school setting is desirable. The project will involve a range of data collection techniques, including objective assessments of physical activity and mixed-methods designs, therefore the candidate should have confidence/experience in quantitative and qualitative research methods and strong communication skills (oral and written).
