The Department of Psychology at Royal Holloway, University of London invites applications for Departmental PhD Studentships and ESRC SeNSS studentships starting in the academic year 2023-2024.
The Department has an active postgraduate research community, is well-equipped for research, and is situated on a beautiful campus close to London. There is a strong research environment, with the Department ranked 3rd in the UK in the 2021 REF for our world-leading and internationally excellent research. Research in the department spans a breadth of topics across psychological sciences and neuroscience. We are supported by excellent facilities including a research-designated functional neuroimaging unit (fMRI), EEG, TMS, tDCS and eye-tracking; as well as labs dedicated to sleep, vestibular-multisensory integration, psychophysiology, psycholinguistics and infant cognition. We consistently achieve high levels of student satisfaction in the NSS, with overall satisfaction levels typically over 90%. Information on our teaching and research environment can be found here.
Studentships are available, funded by the College to support the strategic development of our research capabilities, with a particular emphasis on developing new collaborations. Awards include a tax-free stipend in the region of £19,668 pa for 3.5 years, and cover tuition cover fees at home student rate. International applicants are welcome to apply but would be required to pay the difference between home and international tuition fees.
Our Department is also part of South East Network for Social Sciences (SeNSS) ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP), which unites research-intensive universities in south east England in providing outstanding postgraduate training through ESRC funding. International applicants are welcome to apply and if awarded this studentship is fully funded. Applicants for the SeNSS studentship must apply to both RHUL PhD programme (deadline 16th January, 2023) and via the SeNSS HEI apply portal (deadline 20th January, 2023)
Applicants for all studentships should ideally hold, or be predicted to achieve, a first class undergraduate degree or equivalent in Psychology or related disciplines (minimum requirement: 2.1). An MSc in a psychology- or neuroscience-related subject is desirable, but not essential.
Staff who are currently recruiting for PhD students have advertised potential projects and research interests on our website. Applicants who have their own research project idea should identify a supervisor with the relevant expertise to supervise the project. In preparing an application you should contact staff directly before starting the application. All applicants for the Psychology Departmental studentships will be considered for SeNSS ESRC DTP studentships if they meet the SeNSS eligibility criteria.
