Early career Psychology research wins prestigious award

(1 May 2020)

One of our early career Psychology researchers has been recognised with a prestigious award for her outstanding PhD research.

Dr Julie Van de Vyver won the annual British Psychological Society Social Psychology Section Early Career Award, which recognises outstanding research in social psychology by an early-career scholar.

The award is given based upon submission of a single published paper that stemmed from the nominee’s PhD. 

Julie was nominated for the award for her paper ‘Boosting belligerence: How the July 7, 2005 London Bombings affected Liberals’ moral foundations and prejudice’.

New insights

The nomination was reviewed by three members of the Social Psychology Section Committee who were impressed with the paper’s new understanding of how a terrorist event can affect moral and social attitudes.

Founded in 1953, The Social Psychology Section promotes the development and understanding of Social Psychology in the UK.
