This project aims to both deliver and evaluate performance analysis (PA) within a professional sporting setting (Association Football).  The research project contains a substantial applied component requiring the post holder to work with coaches and players on a daily basis and will be located in the professional host environment.

The project seeks to gain a greater understanding of the effects of PA on player performance, the coaching process and coach effectiveness.  In particular, the effects of PA on player and coach cognitive function and learning over the course of a season will be investigated.  The influence of PA on performance and coaching outcomes will also be assessed.

Applicants should be highly motivated and have, or expect to gain, at least an upper second class degree in a relevant discipline (e.g. Sport Science, Sports Coaching or a related subject), and have an interest in Football (e.g. an F.A. coaching award, playing or coaching experience).  Experience using performance analysis software is desirable though not essential.  In addition, applicants should have excellent oral and written communication skills, as well as confidence in computerised data analysis and research methods.

The studentship provides a stipend of £12,940 per annum plus tuition fees at the UK/EU rate for up to three years.
