Investigating the influence of gender stereotypes and social learning on young people's subject and career choices

Abertay University R-LINCS2 funding. A PhD studentship that comprises tax-free stipend of £15,609 (increasing in line with UKRI per annum) per year over 3.5 years, student tuition fees paid, and a generous study package (e.g. Read more

Fluency and Context in Recognition Memory

This project relates to a sort of ‘memory illusion’.
