Lancaster University, one of the top 10 universities in the United Kingdom, has one of the largest infancy research groups in Europe. Here, we study cognitive, language, social and emotional development in populations ranging from foetuses to pre-school children and beyond with a large range of methods (e.g., remote and head-mounted eye tracking, EEG, computational modelling, NIRS, 4D ultrasound, EMG).  

 

We are now inviting applications for one fully funded Faculty of Science and Technology PhD scholarship in infancy and early developmental research for entry in April 2020 (an earlier start date can be considered).  This studentship provides funding for 3.5 years and will cover UK/EU fees, together with a living stipend (approximately £14,500 per year) and access to a grant for research training support. The studentship is provided by Lancaster University as part of the Leverhulme Trust Doctoral Scholarship Programme in Interdisciplinary Research on Infant Development (http://wp.lancs.ac.uk/leverhulme-dsp/). Applicants should have an excellent undergraduate and  (usually) Masters degree in Psychology or a related discipline.

  

We anticipate to advertise two further studentships for entry in October 2020 early next year.
