On behalf of the Department of Physical Education and Sport Sciences (PESS) I wish to welcome you to the seventh edition of the PESS e-Zine. My thanks go again to all those involved in the editing and contribution of submissions to the e-Zine. PESS will advertise in March 2016 an opportunity for individuals to spend up to eight weeks in PESS gaining experience in one of four research areas, (1) Food for Health, (2) Physical Activity and Health, (3) Sport and Human Performance and (4) Sport Pedagogy. The internship allows individuals an opportunity to work with PESS faculty, explore further their interest and disposition to postgraduate study and / or to consider working in a university setting. The opportunity to apply for a PESS PhD Scholarship will also arise in March 2015. Scholarships are held for up to four years and the recipient is expected to work on a full time basis on their PhD and enroll on the Education and Health Sciences or Education and Professional Studies structured PhD programme. Scholarship recipients are also expected to contribute hours to PESS-related tasks (e.g., teaching, demonstrating, organisation of events) for the duration of their scholarship. PESS are delighted to be in a position to congratulate Ross Anderson on his promotion to Senior Lecturer and Drew Harrison and Ann MacPhail on their promotion to Associate Professor. PESS will shortly be advertising for a Lecturer below the bar in Sports Nutrition and an Applied Studies Coordinator and are hoping to appoint a Professor in Physical Activity and Health. We are delighted that a new Masters in Sport, Exercise and Performance Psychology began in January 2016 and we welcome all students on that programme to PESS and wish them well. I trust you will find the next edition of PESS e-Zine as informative and engaging as previous additions. As always, if you have any interest in collaborating with PESS across areas of teaching and / or research please do not hesitate to contact me at
