Please see below for an advertisement for a PhD position based at the Cardiff University Centre for Human Developmental Science working with myself (Sarah Gerson) and “> Dr Johanna van Schaik (Leiden University/Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) in collaboration with PrimoToys (London-based tech company) and Techniquest (Cardiff based science centre). 


The project is funded by an ESRC DTP Collaborative grant and investigates early exposure to computer coding, technology, and other STEM topics. Students with an interest in education, engagement, and technology are especially encouraged to apply. 


As part of the funding, students may first complete a 1-year Masters degree before beginning the PhD if they have not yet completed a Masters degree.


I am happy to be contacted directly for more information or with any questions.
