Dr Dale Lovell's interests are in the development of strength, power and speed for individual athletes and team sports. These interests stem from his performances as a national representative in 800-metre athletics, rugby union and more recently powerlifting.
Dr Lovell has been able to use the latest sport science technology together with practical strength and conditioning principles to develop programs that have enabled athletes to maximise their sporting performances. His research also includes the utilisation of exercise physiology and strength and conditioning components to improve the health and physical ability of special populations, in particular older Australians.
PhD opportunities in Exercise Physiology
The University of the Sunshine Coast (Queensland Australia), through the School of Health and Sport Sciences, is seeking expressions of interest from potential Doctoral candidates in the area of Exercise Physiology.
Projects are currently being offered across a broad range of topics, including sports performance, clinical exercise physiology, and integrated systems physiology (eg cardiovascular and respiratory). Expressions of interest will remain open throughout the year and enquiries are welcome from eligible Honours, Masters, PhD, and Postdoctoral candidates.
