Lancaster University, one of the top 10 universities in the United Kingdom, has one of the largest infancy research groups in Europe. Here, we study cognitive, language, social and emotional development in populations ranging from foetuses to pre-school children and beyond with a wide range of methods (e.g., remote and head-mounted eye tracking, EEG, computational modelling, NIRS, 4D ultrasound, EMG).

We are now inviting applications for two fully funded Faculty of Science and Technology PhD studentships in infancy and early developmental research for entry in October 2019.  These Faculty studentships provide funding for 3.5 years (3 years for non-EU students) and will cover UK/EU fees (with one potentially also covering the more expensive overseas fees), together with a living stipend (approximately £14,500 per year) and access to a grant for research training support. These studentships are provided by the Faculty as part of the Leverhulme Trust Doctoral Scholarship Programme  in Interdisciplinary Research on Infant Development ( Applicants should have an excellent undergraduate and  Masters degree in Psychology or a related discipline.
