    PhD Assistantships in Sports Science

    Department of Physical Education, Sport & Leisure Studies
    The University of Edinburgh

    Support for study towards a PhD in Sport Science in the area of ‘Learn to
    Swim’ – To commence October, 2003.

    The University of Edinburgh is seeking two researchers in the area of
    ‘Learn to Swim’. Each of the successful applicants will pursue a PhD in
    that area of study.

    Support to the value of £6,165 per year will be provided to conduct the
    research. As part of their duties the successful applicant will be
    expected to work 6 hours for a private learn to swim company (Swimming
    Nature Limited). Support would increase to a maximum of £9,040 if working
    an extra 5 hours per week for Swimming Nature Limited outside of normal
    university hours. The local component of fees will also be covered for a
    period of three years (subject to satisfactory progress). For applicants
    from the European Union this represents full coverage of fees. Some
    assistance may also be available to facilitate attendance at conferences
    and other professional development activities.

    Applicants should normally have, or be about to obtain, a 1st class or 2.1
    honours degree or masters in a relevant discipline. The department will
    consider applicants whose first degrees are in a variety of subjects, as
    long as these provide a background appropriate to the proposed research
    topic in the area of ‘learn to swim’.

    Informal enquiries should be directed to Professor Ross Sanders on +44 131
