Consequently, our taught provision continues to expand, particularly in areas fundamental to our most popular programmes, including Sport & Exercise Science, Sport & Physical Education and Sport Rehabilitation.

The appointed Lecturer will make a full contribution to the School of Health & Sport Sciences in terms of a demonstrable commitment to the research ambitions of the School, learning & teaching and student support.
