The Esports Science Research lab in Lero at the University of Limerick was founded in 2019 and is the first lab dedicated to pursuing excellence in esports health and performance science research initiatives in Europe. With over 15 peer reviewed journal publications, multiple industry collaborations and over 1.5 million in funding over the past 5 years, the lab, which hosts a multidisciplinary team led by Professor Mark Campbell and Dr. Adam Toth, continues to thrive and grow and is now proud to announce that it has been awarded funding to take on a fully funded PhD student in the area of Neuroscience & Biomechanics under the supervision of Dr. Toth and Professor Campbell.

This PhD is funded for 4 years from the start date and is co-funded by Science Foundation Ireland and Logitech, making it unique in that the student will have the opportunity to gain experience with both academic and industry research environments. The research projects comprising the doctoral degree have scope to be shaped by the student in collaboration with collaborators from Logitech. In joining the lab, the prospective candidate will have access to a plethora of state-of-the-art research hardware, software and expertise, including but not limited to:

Motion analysis 3D motion capture

Delsys wireless Electromyography

Functional Near infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS)

Electroencephalography (EEG)

Tobii Eye Tracking

Transcranial electric stimulation (tES)
