At the Institute of Sports Science at the University of Bern, sports science is understood as an interdisciplinary subject. On the one hand, the five departments represent sport science with a certain focus, on the other hand, certain thematic overlaps are intended and cross-departmental research activities are aimed for.
The research interest focuses on social and behavioural aspects of sport and exercise in various fields of practice, i.e. from school sports to popular, leisure and health sports to competitive and top-class sports.
In all five departments it is possible to complete research internships. External applicants should be interested in and ideally have previous knowledge of the research focus of the respective department. Applications should be sent electronically to the respective head of department.
