Research Training and Conferences
RISES in conjunction with the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences provides a research training environment with multiple opportunities for research students and staff to develop their contextual academic, theoretical, technical and research methods skills. Alongside a host of research training opportunities RISES also served to support a number of important national and international conferences. Links to a range of CPD and training opportunities as well to specific conference webpages are set out below.
Specifically RISES supports postgraduate research students who wish to access taught modules run within our MSc or MRes postgraduate frameworks. The MSc programmes run subject specific modules that may be of interest but is also the home of modules related to technical training.
Please visit the University's Research Support Office website for further information about postgraduate study and application procedures.
As a vibrant and multidisciplinary research community RISES provides an opportunity to hear state-of-the-art research presentations within its own Seminar Programme. This seminar series is open to all staff and a compulsory component of the research training for postgraduate research students. Presentations are made by world leading scientists as invited guests to RISES as well as from our own distinguished staff. Updates from current postgraduate students are normally made by final year students (either MRes or PhD). We hold specific presentation days for our overseas students and for any students practising for a national or international conference. We also support the Faculty Research Day (May of each year) as well as other University research presentation initiatives.

RISES also provides a broad array of CPD and training opportunities to both internal and external staff. This is partly to support on-going enterprise activities, to further personal training and development as well as “show-casing” the work and technical skills that underpin research activity within RISES. Examples of such training opportunities includes the annual Cardiovascular Ultrasound in Sport and Exercise Sciences Summer School.
An important aspect of the work of RISES staff is the support and staging or national and international conferences. These conferences have significant scientific training benefit to the RISES environment as well as having broader (social and economic) impact. Examples of conferences supported or staged by RISES include: -
