A fully funded PhD studentship is available at Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL), in the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences, to work with Dr Isabelle Mareschal, and Prof Thomas Dixon director of the Centre for the History of Emotions to start in September 2018.
The aim of this project is to measure the psychological impact of forced and voluntary migration on children’s emotion recognition in collaboration with a Jordan based NGO. We will examine sensitivity to emotion recognition in refugee children living in Jordan, and refugee and migrant children living in the UK. The project will employ behavioural measurements (‘psychophysics”), and will mainly be carried out at Queen Mary University, with 3-4 brief (2 weeks) testing visits to the local NGO in Jordan. The successful candidate will receive the training needed to carry out their research, including advanced psychophysical techniques and behavioural testing. Applications are invited from candidates with, or expecting to be awarded, a Masters degree in an area relevant to the project (e.g. experimental psychology, perception, cognitive psychology, psychiatry, computer science). The student will ideally have experience using Matlab (Psychtoolbox or PsychoPy), or other programing languages. This is a fully funded studentship that coves tuition fees and stipend (at the standard Research Councils UK rate (£16,553 in 2017/18) for three years. It is open to UK/EU students only. International students are required to provide evidence of their proficiency in English language skills. Informal enquiries about the project can be made by email to Dr. Isabelle Mareschal (i.mareschal at qmul.ac.uk<mailto:i.mareschal at qmul.ac.uk>).
Application deadline is March 18, 2018 at:
Deputy Head of Department,
Senior Lecturer in Experimental Psychology,
School of Biological and Chemical Sciences,
Queen Mary University of London
