St Kilda Football Club (STKFC) and the School of Sport & Exercise Science, Victoria University (VU) have formed a Sport Science and High Performance Alignment. Together, they are seeking outstanding candidates with backgrounds in sports science, mathematical analytics and computing to apply for a tax-free Postgraduate Scholarship of $30,000 per annum for 3 years to commence immediately. The successful candidate will become an integral member of the football and conditioning departments. Based primarily full-time at the new Linen House Training Centre, this industry based candidature will have a core research focus based around maximizing the use of GPS technology to determine physical load and assist recovery management. However, it is also expected that this exciting opportunity will also allow the candidate to branch into other research areas related to team sport performance. Candidates from diverse disciplines are encouraged to apply, as the core GPS component may require strong mathematical analytics, computation and programming. Applicants will be required to fully address the selection criteria, and be prepared to give an oral presentation of their honours thesis (or recent work as principal researcher), in conjunction with a brief research proposal. Applications are for Australian citizens only. Closing date: 1pm Thursday 24th March 2011 please obtain documentation and selection criteria from the following link [url]
