dc.description.abstract On behalf of the Department of Physical Education and Sport Sciences (PESS) I wish to welcome you to the fifth 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. The Department hosted the second All-Ireland Postgraduate Conference in Sport Sciences and Physical Education on the 23rd January 2015 and we were delighted with the number of postgraduate students across numerous third-level institutions who contributed to the programme. We encourage other third-level institutions to consider hosting the conference in future years and ask those who wish to note an expression of interest to contact Waterford Institute of Technology will be hosting the 2016 conference. PESS staff are currently investing significant energies in organising an international conference (International Conference on Ambulatory Monitoring of Physical Activity and Movement) and national forum (PEPAYS Ireland), both to take place in June 2015 and each of which you can read more about in this edition. A Masters in Sport, Exercise and Performance Psychology is to begin in January 2016 and further information is included in this PESS e-Zine edition. In March 2015, PESS advertised 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 PESS PhD Scholarships closes on April 24th 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. Further information on the Scholarships are available in this edition of the PESS e-Zine. I would like to welcome Michelle Hyland, our new administrator in the department. I would encourage students and staff to forward information on student and staff achievements (your own or others) to so that such achievements can be celebrated and promoted. I trust you will find the fifth edition of the 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 en_US
