We may take on additional voluntary research assistants. In this role, you can gain valuable research experience by contributing to our ongoing research and by taking part in our weekly lab meetings. The tasks you'll be completing will depend on your level of previous research experience and on what particular skills you want to develop as a voluntary research assistant.
To be able to develop your skills and to contribute meaningfully to our research, you should be able to commit at least 100 hours to this role (e.g., 2 days per week over 6 weeks). Also, you should be a student or graduate of Psychology or related discipline and have at least a basic understanding of experimental methods. Undergraduates will ideally have already completed their first year, although exceptions are generally possible.
If you are interested in becoming a voluntary research assistant in our lab, please send me an email outlining your motivation for applying for a voluntary research assistant role and your CV.
I may take on new PhD students who are interested in working on projects overlapping with my research interests (for some example projects, see here). The next possible starting date is March 2024, although a start date in October 2024 would be preferred. Please note that I currently do not have any funded positions available. Therefore, if you're interested in doing your PhD in our lab, you'll need to have a source of funding available (such as self-funding or a part-time job) or apply for a scholarship. There are several scholarship schemes that you may be eligible to apply for. Please note that I can't apply for funding for you; it will be your responsibility to identify suitable funding bodies and to apply to them.
If you're interested in doing your PhD in our lab, have a source of funding available or plan to apply for one, and meet the eligibility criteria, including academic and English language entry requirements, please apply via the online application form. In addition to the documents required by the form, your application should include a motivation letter outlining your research interests, how they align with the work in our lab, and how you plan to fund your PhD. You will also need to upload an example of your academic writing (in English); this can be your dissertation or a proposal for your research project. Please note that I receive a large number of applications and, therefore, can only consider applications that are complete and fit to our lab's research. You can learn more about our research by browsing through this website.
I currently do not have any funded postdoctoral positions available, but please get in touch if you're interested in applying for postdoctoral funding (e.g., Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship, or Newton International Fellowships) for projects that overlap with my research interests. Please note that I can't apply for funding for you; it will be your responsibility to identify suitable funding sources and to apply for them. Any postdoctoral fellowship applications need to go through a departmental and faculty-level selection and support process (see also here); please factor this into your timeline planning.
If you're interested in joining our lab as a post-doc and plan to apply for funding, please send me an email including a motivation letter outlining your research interests, how they align with the work in our lab, and what funding scheme you have in mind, your CV, and an example of your (English) academic writing (ideally a published article, but this can also be a manuscript, proposal, or a chapter of your thesis). Please note that there is a departmental selection and support process for fellowship applicants, which needs to be factored into the timeline for preparing any applications.
