3.5 year PhD Studentship at University of Tasmania, Hobart, AU

Institution/Company Menzies Institute for Medical Research, University of Tasmania
Country AU
Contact Martin Schulz (martin.schultz [at]
Position PhD Studentship
Duration 3.5 years
Job title / field of work Clinical Cardiovascular Exercise Physiology
Description The Exercise stress Test collaboratION (EXERTION) is a collaborative study established to enhance clinical understanding of abnormal exercise BP. A very-large database of clinical exercise stress test data from multiple locations around Australia have been pooled and linked to administrative health datasets to enable exploration of the associations between test variables and cardiovascular outcomes. This dataset provides the means to explore the following questions which will form the basis of this PhD program: 1. How is the blood pressure response to clinical exercise testing influenced by functional/aerobic capacity? 2. Does the association between exercise BP, cardiac structure and function differ by level of functional/aerobic capacity? 3. Does the association between exercise BP, cardiovascular events and mortality differ by level of functional/aerobic capacity?
