- Applications are invited for an Australian Postgraduate Award Industry (APAI)
granted for 3 years full-time research to commence in 2001. The Northern
Territory University will administer the scholarship and the work
will mainly be
carried out at the Northern Territory Institute of Sport in Darwin.
Acute responses to intermittent, high intensity activity in a tropical
The aim of the project is to determine the physiological, metabolic and
performance demands during intermittent, high intensity activity (IHIA) in a
tropical environment. These are poorly understood but the strategic placement
and expertise of NTU and NTIS affords a unique opportunity to change this
through a collaborative research program. In a temperate environment
associated with IHIA are different to those associated with lower intensity
activity. A tropical environment may alter the magnitude and time course of
responses to IHIA, which is common in working, sporting, armed forces and
emergency service situations. This project will initiate a new direction in
environmental research, and will provide a base for multiple future research
projects. It will also provide urgently required safe practice guidelines for
IHIA in a tropical environment.
The APAI stipend is $22,030 per year for three years plus up to $1,345 removal
expenses, air fares for student, spouse and dependants and up to $830 thesis
allowance. There is no standard application form and you are free to
The applicant must be an Australian citizen or a permanent Australian resident.

Personal details and interests, publications and conference presentations,
employment history, academic transcripts and research background are all
relevant to the application. Given that the project is "Acute responses to
intermittent, high intensity activity in a tropical environment" we would also
like to know what background you have in environmental physiology. This is
desirable rather than essential.
Written applications must be received before COB on February 23, 2001, and
