Exciting research opportunity with Leeds Rhinos and Leeds Beckett University

Leeds Beckett University and Leeds Rhinos are looking to recruit a highly motivated individual to join the embedded research team at the club.

The Carnegie School of Sport provides a vibrant and high quality research environment for postgraduate research students (as evident in the 2014 Research Excellent Framework). The university’s commitment to Sport research, education and knowledge exchange is evident in the University‘s £45 million investment in a world-class home for the Carnegie School of Sport. 

Partnerships with local sports teams are a cornerstone of our work and Leeds Beckett are proud of their long-standing relationship with Leeds Rhinos. This project provides an exciting opportunity to be involved in supporting Leeds Rhinos. The Carnegie Applied Rugby Research (CARR) centre within the School undertakes high quality applied research with international and national governing bodies, and a range of professional sports teams.

Leeds Rhinos and Leeds Beckett University have a strong established relationship, with fourteen PhD studentships embedded within the club since 2014. Given the success of embedded research studentships, Leeds Rhinos are looking to invest in another PhD studentship. The successful candidates will be embedded within Leeds Rhinos working alongside research and performance staff.
