      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.

      Research Topic

      Acute responses to intermittent, high intensity activity in a tropical
      environment.

      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
      the demands
      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.


      Award Conditions

      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
      design your
      own application.

      The applicant must be an Australian citizen or a permanent Australian resident.

      APAI information may be found in Appendix 3 of the Australian
      Research Council's
      SPIRT guidelines:
      http://www.arc.gov.au/grants/docs/spirt2001guidelines.rtf

      Further details may be obtained from Paul Finn (08) 8946 6146 or John Marsden
      (08) 8922 6830.

      Applications

      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
      addressed to:

      Dr J.P. Finn
      School of Health, Education and Community Services
      Faculty of SITE
      Northern Territory University, Darwin, NT 0909.
