This PhD studentship is funded as part of a European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator Grant, MOCHA (Understanding and leveraging ‘moments of change’ for pro-environmental behaviour shifts). MOCHA runs for five years from 2019 to 2024, and this studentship will run during the first three years of funding. The aim of MOCHA is to examine how ambitious lifestyle change might be achieved through understanding and harnessing ‘moments of change’ in life circumstances.
The studentship will commence in October 2019 and will cover your tuition fees (at UK/EU level) as well as a maintenance grant. In 2018-19the maintenance grant for full-time students was £14,777 per annum. As well as tuition fees and a maintenance grant, all School of Psychology students receive conference and participant money (approx. £2250 for the duration of the studentship). School of Psychology students also receive a computer and office space, additional funding for their research, and access to courses offered by the University’s Doctoral Academy and become members of the University Doctoral Academy.
Full awards (fees plus maintenance stipend) are open to UK Nationals, and EU students who can satisfy UK residency requirements. To be eligible for the full award, EU Nationals must have been in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of the course for which they are seeking funding, including for the purposes of full-time education.
As only one studentship is available and a very high standard of applications is typically received, the successful applicant is likely to have a very good first degree (a First or Upper Second class BSc Honours or equivalent) and/or be distinguished by having relevant research experience.
You can apply online - consideration is automatic on applying for a PhD in Psychology, with an October 2019 start date (programme code RFPDPSYA).
Deadline 17th March 2019 with interviews (either in person or by Skype) being held late March and decisions being made by end of March
