EASP – European Association of Social Psychology

PhD studentship in Social Psychology

09.04.2017, by Sibylle Classen

Roehampton University, London
Closing date: May 5, 2017


The University of Roehampton’s Department of Psychology will fund four studentships in 2017. Six projects have been identified, each of which offers an opportunity to be part of a research programme. Projects attracting the best four applicants will be awarded a PhD bursary (tuition waiver + stipend) starting in October 2017.

We (Karl-Andrew Woltin, Kai Sassenberg, & Chris Evans) are looking for a strong applicant with an interest in social psychology. The project will focus on the impact of interpersonal regulatory fit between people in distress and potential helpers on empathy, prosocial behaviour, and perceived support. More information, also on the department and the research environment, can be found here:

(Project #6 of Department of Psychology – PhD Studentships for October 2017 entry).

The direct link to the project can be found here:

General requirements are that applicants should hold a first class or upper second class honours undergraduate degree (or equivalent international qualification) and a Master’s degree (or equivalent, such as substantive experience as research assistant) in Psychology (or a closely related subject). The only requirement for non-UK students from the EU is that they have to demonstrate their English language competence (IELTS, details are in the ad).

The closing date is on 05 May 2017 (noon); interviews are to be held from 22 May 2017.

I am happy to answer any questions about the project or the application (; +44 (0)20 8392 5761).
