The Faculty of Human Kinetics is recruiting doctoral students interested in applied sport science and strength and conditioning.
Candidates will work directly with Lancer varsity football, volleyball, and soccer teams, conducting research within the daily training environment of student athletes.
These three funded positions will work closely with the Centre for Human Performance and Health, the University’s high-performance sport testing and research facility.
The mission of this new focus is to identify, train and develop the next generation of world-class sport scientists, said Andrew Perrotta, one of the faculty members who will supervise the new doctoral students.
“The program will be one-of-a-kind in Canada, offering students the opportunity to be both practitioners and applied researchers,” Dr. Perrotta said.
The deadline to apply is Jan. 1. Learn more about these doctoral positions here.
