Project:

Intentional anti-doping rule violations (ADRVs), which include the use of banned substances, possession, and acts that discourage athletes or other person to report doping misconduct, represent a threat to the integrity of sport. Additionally, athletes who take performance enhancing drugs endanger their health. Although authorities spend vast amounts of money trying to catch athletes who commit ADRVs via testing, the literature indicates that many more athletes are doping than those who are detected on an annual basis. Therefore, alternative approaches are therefore required to identify athletes who dope, such as encouraging athletes to reporting ADRVs. However, the literature also indicates that many athletes are reluctant to blow the whistle. As such, there is a significant need for research that identifies what drives and hinders whistleblowing against ADRVs in sport. This PhD will use a theory-driven approach to identify how coach interpersonal styles are linked to whistleblowing, using prospective and experimental research designs.

Funding:

The successful applicant will receive a fee waiver and a maintenance grant for four years (full-time), which covers the research period of the PhD. The fee waiver for 24/25 is £4712 (Home fee) and the maintenance grant is £18622 per annum, which includes payment for 6 hours per week of teaching. This rises each year in line with the UKRI’s recommended allowance. If you need to move into a fifth year (full time) to complete your thesis, please note that you will not receive a tuition fee waiver or maintenance grant during this period and you will be required to pay a continuation fee.

Eligibility Requirements:

Applicants should have a 2:1 of first undergraduate degree and a taught MSc or Masters by Research in sport and exercise psychology, or a related area. Experience of conducting anti-doping research would be desirable. For more details on our entry requirements please visit the postgraduate admissions webpage. This scholarship is available for full-time study.

International applicants:

This opportunity comes with a Home fee waiver only, which will not cover the full International fee. You will therefore need to pay the difference between the Home fee and the International fee and will need to provide evidence that you have sufficient funds to cover this.
