Fully Funded PhD Studentship in Social Neuroscience at Bangor University, UK

Join the Developmental Social Vision Lab as a PhD Student!

Applications are invited for a 3-year, fully funded  PhD position in the lab under the supervision of Dr. Kami Koldewyn. The post is part of a European Research Council funded Starting Grant focused on Developmental Social Neuroscience. The project, ‘Becoming Social’, investigates developmental change in social perception, social learning and the social brain in late-childhood/early adolescence. The successful applicant will work with the Becoming Social team to design and carry-out research that  focuses on understanding how we perceive, process and understand the social interactions we observe. Methods used may include behavioural, eye-tracking and neuroimaging (e.g. fMRI, DWI) measures and the PhD student will be very involved, both conceptually and technically, in the design and construction of research questions and the tasks to address them. This studentship will likely involve investigating developmental questions in late-childhood and early adolescence.

Closing date for applications:  16th  April , 2018.

Start date: ~25th  September, 2018.
