The Queensland Academy of Sport (QAS), Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and QUT Centre for Data Science are partners in a world leading program of research in data science in sports. The mission is to tackle key challenges and support day-to-day decisions in sports and athletic training through innovations at the intersection of data science and the sports, and sports science and sports medicine.  Projects will be undertaken with the core partners and organisations for specific sports, including close interaction with the ‘decision support’ needs of coaches.
Applicants will be invited to apply for one of the following projects:
  1. Predictive modelling of injuries and subsequent injuries given training and competition.
  2. Whole-of-systems modelling for multi-criteria, risk-reward based management of athlete training.
  3. Predictive models of adaptation to training: effects of performance versus fatigue.

Each of these projects will have opportunities to develop new statistical and/or machine learning methods, computational algorithms, and visualisations.
