– Your Ph.D applied research project will focus on prediction of American youth basketball or volleyball player selection using athleticism testing metrics. Although you will be analyzing this demographic you will still coach athletes of all sports and ages.
– Your scientific training will include formal learning in epistemology, logic, statistical software (R programming), and data analysis.
– Your practical training will include formal learning in progressive strength and conditioning, youth coaching, and long term athlete development.
– You will be guided throughout this educational process by world-class practitioners and scientists.
– Unlike in many industry Ph.D. situations, your applied research is not a “side deal” or something “you do on your own personal time”. Here, you have dedicated time for desk and study work, data collection, etc. Your employment is built around doing the research and coaching because we take our internal R&D extremely seriously.
– After your first employment term as a S&C Coach/Junior Sport Scientist you will be eligible for employment as a Senior Scientist/S&C Coach which includes many more incentives.
– In this experience you will have a place to work, access to the needed data, quality housing covered, full health insurance covered, school fees fully paid for, and a rewarding coaching experience. Although you, the student-employee, are responsible for your own food/entertainment/etc. money we believe this opportunity is better than the majority of graduate-student situations in existence.
