Looking for new graduate students in social, political, and peace psychology
We are currently accepting applications for new graduate students at the Morality, Violence, and Peace Lab at the University of Massachusetts Amherst (USA) under the direction of Bernhard Leidner. We welcome applications from anyone who is interested in conducting empirical research at the intersection of social, political, and peace psychology. The lab currently consists of two graduate students and 15 undergraduate research assistants. Our current research focuses on past and ongoing international conflict (e.g. Middle East, Balkans), international justice, conflict resolution and reconciliation. Research in the near future will expand this focus to human rights as well as the biopsychological consequences of perpetration of violence (e.g. stress, health).
Graduate students in the lab will pursue a Ph.D. in Social Psychology with a concentration in the Psychology of Peace and Violence, and an optional concentration in Quantitative Statistics. Our students are typically fully funded for at least five years, during which they are also encouraged to: develop their own program of research (under the broader purview of the lab interests); do funded field research and/or a field internship, often in other countries; and work with other peace and social psychology faculty at UMass or in other countries if they so desire.
Applicants with past research experience, strong research methods, experimental and statistical skills, and international backgrounds and/or language skills are especially welcome. Interdisciplinary backgrounds (e.g. law, human rights, political science) are a plus as long as they combine with psychology and empirical research.

Research Master's programme in Psychology
Location: University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands

 

Research Master's programme in Psychology at the University of Amsterdam

Students interested in pursuing a career in science are encouraged to apply to our two-year Research Master in Psychology at the University of Amsterdam . Students choose from six specialisations in Psychology, one as their major and one as their minor. Students compile their own individual programme of study so that it suits their experience, ambitions, talents and interest. The programme has an international orientation. All courses are taught in English, by prominent scientists, and each year students take part in seminars on cutting edge developments in Psychology, offered by internationally renowned scholars. Moreover, students are actively involved in research themselves.

The programme offers a series of advanced courses on research methods and statistics, programming skills and scientific writing an presenting skills. On a theoretical level, students will attend specialised courses in at least two areas of Psychology. Students opting for a major in Social Psychology  can combine this with a minor in any of the five remaining research areas offered by the Psychology Department at the University of Amsterdam : Clinical Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Psychological Methods, Psychonomics and Work and Organizational Psychology. All these programmes received good to excellent ratings in the recent research appraisal. Combining a major in Social Psychology with a minor an another area, allows students to put the study of Social Psychology into a broader scientific context and stimulates them to pursue research that uses different methods and extends beyond the boundaries of the discipline. For example, the available resources in neuroimaging (fMRI), virtual reality and physiological measures can provide students with valuable methodological knowledge. Apart from taking courses, students engage in two research projects, at least one of them resulting in a report in the form of a publishable journal article. The goal of the programme is to furnish its graduates with a profound education and research experience in cutting edge psychological research. It seeks to prepare students for a scientific career, within or outside a university setting. On the following site http://www.student.uva.nl/msc-psychology you can find relevant information about the programme, you can download the digital course catalogue and find information about the application procedure.
