Anyone interested in applying for a Fellowship with the Department as the host institution should contact the Director of Research (in additional to the academic that they are hoping to work with).
Potential applicants should contact the Department well in advance of the closing deadline, normally a minimum of two months ahead of the external deadline (note that there may be earlier internal deadlines as part of the selection process), with the following information:
- Details of the scheme to which they wish to apply
- Name of the academic within the Department of Psychology who they are hoping to work with
Important: Should a Fellowship application be successful, it will be the fellow’s responsibility to deal with issues of immigration, visas etc.
Our 33 members of academic staff consistently produce and publish high impact research spanning all subdisciplines of psychology. The Department of Psychology provides a world-class research environment for postgraduate students in Biological, Cognitive, Social or Developmental Psychology along with more applied aspects such as Educational Psychology, Forensic/Criminological Psychology, Neuroscience (including Neurorehabilitation) and Health Psychology. Much of our research is interdisciplinary both within the department and outside of the department.
The research activities in the Department fall within four research groupings:
- Perception, Action & Awareness
- Developmental Science
- Social, Evolutionary & Affective Psychology
- Learning, Memory & Cognition
In addition, members of the Department play leading roles in the following research institutes, centres and units:
