  • Lecturer/Senior Lecturer - Biomechanics - Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK

    Faculty Background Details:
    The Department of Sport and Exercise Sciences operates within the Faculty of Science and Technology, on the Cambridge campus. It is a dynamic, successful and rapidly growing department. The Sport and Exercise Sciences course area offers three undergraduate degrees; Sport and Exercise Science, Sports Coaching and Physical Education, and Coaching for Performance in Football (distance learning). There is also a very popular extended (Level 3) degree entry point which progresses excellent students on the 1st year (Level 4) of the undergraduate programme. The MSc in Sport and Exercise Science course successfully recruited its first cohort in September 2015 and is an area for further expansion over the medium term. The course team has a strong research focus with staff publishing papers across all the major sub-disciplines. The Sport and Exercise Sciences Research Group is aiming to submit to the upcoming REF. Purpose built laboratories for teaching, research and consultancy will further enhance the standing of the newly established Cambridge Centre for Sport and Exercise Sciences.
