Administrative

Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their most productive under supervisors who give clear guidelines and while performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

Healthy foods, healthy bodies

Whether you are an Olympic athlete or just going about your day-to-day life, feeding and using your muscles smartly can help you perform well and age healthily. At DCU, sports science researcher Dr Brendan Egan looks at how our muscles adapt to exercise and forms of training and nutrition support.

His lab works with human volunteers who try different diets and nutrition supplements, or who do particular exercise regimes, then the scientists analyse samples of blood and muscle from the volunteers to measure changes.

“People are always keen to know what foods can keep them healthy and performing well, and the science of nutrition and performance is growing quickly,” says Brendan. “Ultimately the work we do in the lab will translate into people eating more effectively for health, endurance and strength.”
