Project Description

Applications are invited from talented and enthusiastic students who are interested in studying cognitive processes in appetite control. My research group is interested in the role of learning, memory and attention in the control of
food intake. We ask questions about how memory for recently consumed foods affects decisions about future food intake and the factors that determine remembered liking for foods.

Applicants should have a research-oriented background in experimental psychology, or a related discipline.

The lab is based in the School of Psychology, University of Birmingham. We are one of the largest and most active psychology departments in the UK. Further information on research in the School can be found at

and about the group at: https://eatingbehaviourlab.wordpress.com/about/

Note that all formal applications must be made via the postgraduate admissions system in the School of Psychology
