DSTL Studentship 2014 (January 2014 Entry)

The department is pleased to announce that we have DPhil in Experimental Psychology places available for entry in January 2014 which are fully funded by the Defence Science & Technology Laboratory (DSTL).

Studentship affiliated with Wolfson College  (Reference code: 12EXP05WEBJOB)

Project Title: The Social Neuroscience of Self-Oriented and Team-oriented Biases – from Brain Responses to Behaviour

The project will be based around a new technique for measuring biases in basic perceptual tasks for stimuli associated with the self or with the in-group. It will examine how self-biases link to performance in solo and team activities and whether team training changes the biases in individuals. fMRI will be used to evaluate the neural basis of any effects. For further details see further particulars link below

Supervisors: Professors Glyn Humphreys and Miles Hewstone.
