We recruit high-quality, motivated students to carry out theoretical and applied PhD projects, which are often sponsored by external clients.
We have an excellent track record of working with MSc and PhD students and are incredibly proud of their achievements. Our students go on to secure high-value careers throughout the sports industry and academia.
Our laboratories, workshops and offices provide an excellent environment in which we can deliver our cutting-edge work in research, knowledge transfer and education. The facilities are based both at the Collegiate campus and the new £14m world-leading Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre in Sheffield’s Olympic Legacy Park.
