Funded PhD studentship

Funding is available for a PhD studentship in my department, based around a teaching fellowship. This means you’d get four years of funding but would be expected to help teach during your PhD.

Relevant suitability criteria include:

  • Being ready to start on 5th of February
  • Having completed an MSc with a Merit or Distinction
  • EU citizen
  • Background in psychology

Projects I’d like to supervise are here, including:

Analysing Big Data to understand learning (like this)

Online discussion: augmenting argumentation with chatbots (with Andreas Vlachos in Computer Science)

Improving skill learning (theory informed experiments!)

A PhD with me will involve using robust and open science methods to address theoretical ideas in cognitive science. Plus extensive mentoring on all aspects of the scholarly life, conducted in Sheffield’s best coffee shops.

Full details of the opportunity here. Deadline: 18th December. Get in touch!
