Applications are invited for two full-time PhD studentships in the School of Psychology at University Of Central Lancashire. The studentship is tenable for up to 3 years [subject to satisfactory progress] and will cover the cost of tuition fees at UK/EU rates plus a maintenance grant of £13,590 (2012/13 rate).

As a minimum requirement, applicants should have, or expect to receive, a second class (upper division) honours degree (or equivalent qualification) or an MSc in a related discipline.
