  • PhD opportunities: Sport and Exercise Research Centre, University of Roehampton

    The research team at University of Roehampton (London, UK) would like to invite applications for admission to our MPhil/PhD programmes which will be offered in various specialisation areas. We have an active programme of research with strong interests in exercise and health. Our laboratories have state-of-the-art equipment, including a complete motion analyis system, various types of motions sensors, an environmental chamber and an ergospriometry system. We also have a highly qualified technical team to support the academic work of our graduate students.

    The research team can offer PhD supervision in the following areas:

    Spine biomechanics and osteoporosis (Prof R Lee r.lee@roehampton.ac.uk and Dr J Luo Jin.Luo@roehampton.ac.uk)

    Health technology/engineering and physical activity monitoring (Prof R Lee r.lee@roehampton.ac.uk and Dr J Luo Jin.Luo@roehampton.ac.uk)

    Clinical and biomechanical gait measures in older people (Dr S Strike S.Strike@roehampton.ac.uk and Prof R Lee r.lee@roehampton.ac.uk)

    Neural and mechanical limitations of skeletal muscle force production,
    and adaptations to training (Dr N Tillin neale.tillin@roehampton.ac.uk and Dr S Strike S.Strike@roehampton.ac.uk)

    Biomechanics and neuromuscular control of functional mobility in older adults (Dr N Tillin neale.tillin@roehampton.ac.uk and Dr S Strike S.Strike@roehampton.ac.uk)
