Sport Sciences within the School of Sport and Education has consistently been highly rated in national league tables. This reflects a strong tradition in Sport coupled with significant recent investment in state-of-the-art sports and laboratory facilities for research and teaching. The School offers a vibrant mix of young researchers working alongside more experienced colleagues. Within Sport Sciences we have two research centres: the Brunel Centre for Sport Health and Wellbeing and the Centre for Sports Medicine and Human Performance. As part of our vision for 2014/15 and beyond, we are looking to continue development in these areas. We have one full-time Physiology-related PhD studentship available in the Centre for Sports Medicine and Human Performance (CSMHP) beginning 1st October 2014.
