Specialist Sport and Physical Activity Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) PhD Studentship

Effects of sodium bicarbonate and/or sodium citrate on exercise performance in male and female cross fit athletes.

Researchers working on sport related projects are normally housed in the Department of Sport and Physical Activity.

The research priorities for the Edge Hill University Department of Sport and Physical Activity are continued increases in the volume of high-quality research outputs leading to societal research impact, postgraduate student and staff research development, and securing income to build research capacity.

We aim to realise these priorities through world-leading and internationally excellent research which aligns with research themed groups operating under three overarching multi-disciplinary research strands of (i) Health, Wellbeing, and Welfare, (ii) Sport and Exercise Performance, and (iii) Professional Development and Practice.

The research conducted within these strands is led by established researchers who oversee a diverse portfolio of research programmes encompassing work in settings including laboratories, schools, hospitals, sports clubs, and wider community contexts.

We are seeking talented and motivated applicants whose research aligns to the research strand in Sport and Exercise Performance. The University particularly welcomes applications for studentships in the project areas outlined below. All students will be supported by a supervisory team with discipline-specific expertise. In the first instance please direct all enquiries about this project to: Professor Lars R. McNaughton, or phone: 01695 657296.
