This is a fixed term, four-year 0.5 FTE Graduate Teaching Assistant post within the Sport and Exercise discipline of the Sciences Subject Area, with an option to extend the contract by one year and a fantastic opportunity to complete a fully funded PhD.
The PhD studies will run alongside the practitioner and teaching posts to investigate the feasibility and effectiveness of using isometric resistance training as a therapeutic intervention to manage the blood pressure of newly diagnosed hypertensives. This PhD will be one of the first attempts to implement isometric resistance exercise as a therapeutic treatment option within a local authority health check referral pathway.
The post is part funded by Public Health and in the first 2-years, the post holder will work within Public Health to undertake community health checks with the aim of diagnosing individuals who have high blood pressure. In the final 2-years, the post holder will contribute to the teaching of BSc Sport and Exercise Science and related activities across undergraduate and possibly postgraduate levels.
The PhD will be under the supervision of Dr Anthony Baross. The fees for four-year duration of the PhD will be fully covered. For further information on the post please contact: Anthony.Baross@Northampton.ac.uk
