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. This is a collaborative project between the Physical Activity Exchange and researchers based at Edge Hill University, UK, and Iowa State University, US.
Physical activity is a difficult behaviour to measure accurately, particularly in children. This project will examine methods of measuring physical activity and investigate the physical activity levels of children and adolescents using a range of techniques, including objective physical activity monitoring and self-report tools.

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 candidate should have confidence/experience in quantitative research methods and strong communication skills (oral and written).
