Brunel University London – PhD studentship

The collaborative PhD studentship in inequalities and community sport engagement will involve rigorous and systematic mixed methods work on understanding the relationships between social inequalities and correlates of sport/physical activity that could underpin the effective intervention design and policy making in the community sport sector. Precise research questions and methods will be discussed, refined and agreed with the successful candidate, supervisors and Sport England. Mixed methods are likely to include both secondary data analysis using hierarchical linear modelling and mixed-effects modelling of selected survey data sets, and primary qualitative data collection using participatory strategies for understanding community sport/physical activity and social inequalities.

The successful candidate will be supervised by Dr Adrienne Milner, Dr Nana Anokye and Professor Louise Mansfield.
