The research experience
Students have the opportunity to gain invaluable hands on research experience through engagement in the Active Living Laboratory’s current research studies. We offer students practical experience in data collection methods, data management, technical report writing and working as part of a team. Students also have the opportunity to present their research at conferences and symposia.
We are always looking for high quality students to join our research team. If you are interested in working on a postgraduate research programme at the Active Living Laboratory, email your CV, academic transcripts and a cover letter to Associate Professor Sandy Mandic.
