The Centre for Research on Self and Identity at the University of Southampton is offering a fully funded studentship, awarded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership (SCDTP), which commences in 2019/20 Academic Year. This studentship will examine how emotion regulation influences reward processing and whether biomarkers of reward processing account for links between emotion regulation and changes in consequential outcomes over time.

Emotion regulation contributes to consequential outcomes like physical health, mental health and success in work, school, and relationships. Previous research has investigated the effects of emotion regulation on threat processing, but has neglected the role of emotion regulation in reward processing, despite the relevance of reward processing to consequential outcomes like mood disorders and addictive behaviors. Here we ask how emotion regulation influences reward processing and whether biomarkers of reward processing account for links between emotion regulation and changes in consequential outcomes over time.

The closing date and time for applications is 11.59pm on 24th January 2019. The full application procedure, the funding application form, and more information on the South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership can be found at: http://southcoastdtp.ac.uk/apply/
