About the Project
This PhD will use behaviour change theory and frameworks to develop and test interventions to increase Open Science behaviours. Methods used in this PhD could include use of qualitative or questionnaire methods to understand the barriers and facilitators to specific Open Science behaviours, as well as development and evaluation of interventions using frameworks such as the Behaviour Change Wheel. Applicants interested in pursuing this project would ideally have a passion and evidenced experience in Open Science, accompanied by a strong background in behaviour change, psychology or behavioural science more broadly, meta-research or evidence synthesis.
