PhD Fellowship in Psychology at UCL Institute of Education

UCL Institute of Education is pleased to invite applicants to apply for PhD scholarship in psychology. To be eligible, candidates must hold British citizenship. Applications are invited up to March 06, 2015.

Applications are invited for a full-time PhD studentship funded by the Bloomsbury Colleges, University of London. This studentship will be integrated into a recently funded multidisciplinary intervention project, UnLoCKE (Understanding Learning of Counterintuitive Concepts through Knowledge Interference Control in Science and Mathematics Education), in the emerging field of educational neuroscience. UnLoCKE involves the design and implementation of a primary school-based intervention aiming to develop children's ability to inhibit perceptual information and pre-existing beliefs when solving maths and science problems (Diamond Lee, 201.

The project will provide an ambitious and talented student with the opportunity to characterise the cognitive processes that limit scientific reasoning in childhood in the laboratory and the classroom, by integrating developmental psychology, developmental cognitive neuroscience research into the topic of the solving maths and science problems.
