studentships/teaching fellowships starting in October 2011. Psychology has
an enthusiastic and vibrant research community which provides a stimulating
and exciting environment for postgraduate study. We encourage students

Psychology or a related discipline, or who already have an MSc, to apply to
study for a PhD at Stirling.

Students interested in applying should first contact individual academic
members of staff in a relevant area to discuss potential projects. Applicants
will be expected to pursue an element of external funding where feasible.
We have an outstanding record of success in both teaching and research. We
have an international reputation for research and our teaching earns top

Our research is supported by state-of-the-art facilities, including an in-house
playgroup, human electrophysiological recording and analysis facilities,
health and clinical laboratories, and expertise in computational modeling.
There are excellent facilities for postgraduate students, including allocated
office space, equipment and conference funding.

The studentships will be fully funded, and successful applicants are expected
to contribute towards teaching in Psychology.
