  Weight stigma and health behaviours
  Dr N Buckland, Dr A Iyer, Dr C Wood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is one of society’s greatest challenges with 2/3rds of UK adults being overweight or obese. Weight stigma (anti-fat attitudes, weight-based prejudice and discrimination) is experienced by 54% of adults and deters individuals from engaging in healthy behaviours targeted in obesity interventions (e.g.
  Reducing prejudice and discrimination and promoting inclusion

Finding effective ways to change attitudes and behaviour is an important focus of social psychology.
  Changing health, social and environmental behaviours with the Question-Behaviour Effect.
  Dr C Wood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Question-Behaviour Effect (QBE) is a simple intervention whereby asking questions about a future behaviour increases the likelihood of that behaviour being performed.
  The virtual body schema project: How can body schema be objectively defined and measured?
  Dr SP Wilson, Dr T Stafford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The body schema can be loosely defined as the representation of the body in space, i.e., how you know you can reach the pint at the bar but not the bottle behind it; that you can fit through the door but not the cat-flap; that you must dive to kick a ball or duck to avoid a punch.
  The synthetic littermate project: How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain?
  Dr SP Wilson, Prof AJ Prescott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain? To address this question directly, we have been developing a novel robotic technology - the synthetic littermate (or ’surrogate’).
  Self-organisation as a theory of brain development
  Dr SP Wilson, Dr JV Stone
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Self-organisation is a general theory of how function is assigned to cortical microcircuits. The theory predicts that a balance between cooperative and competitive interactions in local cortical circuits, consolidated by Hebbian learning, results in similar inputs being represented by nearby neurons.
  Using psychology to tackle the problem of waste plastic
  Dr T Webb, Dr C Wood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Waste plastic can have a devastating effect on the environment, threatening the biodiversity of our oceans and introducing micro-plastics into the food chain.
