Dear all,


We are currently offering a fully-funded PhD or combined Masters and PhD project for excellent students wishing to further their research career in development of social cognition.  The project will be supervised by Dr. Sophie Milward, Dr. Matt Parker and Prof. Bridget Waller.


The project will use behavioural (e.g. errors, response times) and physiological (e.g. salivary cortisol, heart-rate) measures to investigate young children’s explicit perspective-taking and emotion understanding skills, in comparison to more implicit transmission or contagion of perspectives and emotions. There is, however, considerable scope for the student to develop their own ideas within this topic.


For more information on how to apply, please see:

Closing date: 18th June 2019
