We are looking for PhD students interested in working with us on projects related to our ecological embodied cognition programme (Andrew, Sabrina; see our blog for details) and the neuroscience of creativity and imagination (Anna; see her web page). We have some specific projects in mind (e.g. the ones listed here) and will likely advocate for one of these more focused projects, but we are always interested in developing suitable projects with motivated students so long as they align with the work in the lab.
Facilities here at Leeds Beckett include Matlab and the Psychtoolbox (for programming and analysing experiments), Pro Reflex cameras, tablets and Wii Fit boards (for motion tracking and data capture) and trans-cranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). We have access to a dedicated lab for data collection as well as other rooms booked on-demand.
Interested students should have or anticipate having the equivalent of a UK 1st undergraduate degree in Psychology or relevant discipline. Funding for these positions is being finalised, and we will have more details soon.
Any questions or comments, please contact us! We look forward to hearing from you.
