Launched in 2021 and based within the University’s Institute of Biomedical Engineering (Department of Engineering Science), the Podium Analytics Institute for Youth Sports Medicine and Technology at the University of Oxford shifts the traditional emphasis of research into sports injury - which is predominantly adult-centric and based upon treatment – by concentrating on younger athletes, 11-18 years old, and focuses on prevention rather than cure. The institute develops new technologies to monitor and analyse the individual factors that lead to youth sports injuries and offers practical solutions for safer sports practices, focusing on safety rather than performance. A hallmark of the Institute is the development and validation of new technologies for sport injury detection and prevention. Where appropriate, projects can be co-supervised by academics in the Medical Sciences Division with relevant expertise.
This studentship is open to UK students and Overseas students (full award – fees plus stipend).
University course fees are covered at the level set for UK students (£8,960 in 2022-23 academic year) and Overseas students (£29,700 in 2022-23 academic year). The stipend (tax-free maintenance grant) will be c. £19,668 (£17,668 EPSRC stipend level plus £2,000 top up) for the first year, and at least this amount for a further three years.
