The Development of Relief PhD Studentship, Queen’s University Belfast, UK

Children’s ability to experience the emotion of relief is poorly understood. This PhD project will aim to determine: (1) when the ability to experience relief develops during childhood; (2) how the development of the ability to experience relief relates to developments in children’s abilities to think about time; and (3) whether the emerging ability to experience relief plays a role in children’s decision making.

The project will be based in the School of Psychology at Queen’s University Belfast and be supervised by Professor Teresa McCormack and Dr Aidan Feeney. The successful candidate will be part of a larger interdisciplinary project on relief, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, involving Queen’s University Belfast and the Universities of Warwick and Birmingham.

The Student
The studentship is open to all applicants although applicants from outside the EU/UK will be required to cover the annual difference between Home/EU and the overseas tuition fee rates.

Candidates should have an excellent academic track record. Experience of developmental research and an interest in cognitive or emotional development are desirable. The student will be expected to design and carry out experimental studies in schools and in the laboratory and to analyse data using appropriate statistical methods. Publication of research findings will be encouraged and supported.
