This is an exciting opportunity to develop research into the impact of air pollution, environmental noise and other environmental factors on cardiovascular health. It builds on our current work including literature reviews, datasets and an exercise app developed as part of the ESA funded Personalised Space Technology Exercise Platform (P-STEP) project (a smartphone app for people with long-term health conditions promoting outside walking which provides air quality information on the routes they take). Working with experts from both the Centre for Environmental Health and Sustainability and Cardiovascular Sciences the post-holder will develop new research on the impacts of environmental pollutants on response to exercise in those with pre-existing disease. An example might be designing and running a pilot study using the P-STEP app to look at impact of air pollution on cardiac rhythm during exercise in those with cardiovascular disease, with potential to develop into a grant application.
You will hold a PhD (or equivalent) in an appropriate discipline, for example, but not limited to physical activity, physiology, cardiovascular science, molecular biology, environmental science, or statistics/data science. Or you will have the equivalent professional qualification and experience. We are looking for a candidate who has experience of contributing to peer-reviewed research outputs and expertise in relevant approaches/models and analytical techniques.
