PhD Studentship opportunity

The Department of Sport & Exercise Sciences is delighted to offer a PhD Studentship Opportunity, in partnership with TASS – Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme. The Studentship offers full UK / EU rate tuition fees, an annual stipend of £14,500 as well as access to a research training support grant. The Project is entitled  “Diversifying routes for developing elite sports performers: how to promote inclusivity in dual career systems” and will involve work with athletes, support staff, National Governing Bodies and dual career systems within the UK, considering how best such systems and processes can be equitable, inclusive and engaging a diverse cohort of athletes, aiming to develop our understanding of how inclusion and exclusion are experienced, and how motivation and engagement are affected and overcome by those facing barriers to participation. TASS will support the project enabling the scholar to gain insight and experience of UK sporting organisations as well as providing routes for disseminating findings.

Supervision will come from Dr Emily Oliver and Dr Alexandra J Rankin- Wright at Durham University as well as Dr Emma Vickery and Guy Taylor at TASS.
