Dear All,

There is currently a PhD scholarship (AUD$30,000 per annum for 3.5 years)
available for a student to work with me, Dr Ans Vercammen and Professor
Peter Rendell on a project examining the development and decline of social
cognition and emotion processing. The successful applicant would be based
in Sydney at the Australian Catholic University's Sydney (Strathfield)
campus. See project description below.

Could I please ask for your assistance in forwarding this email to anyone
who may be a suitable applicant, or who may know someone else who would be?

Potential applicants should contact me in the first instance at
Megan.Willis at acu.edu.au

Many thanks,


*Project Title: *The Development and Decline of Social Cognition and
Emotion Processing

*Project Description:* This project will examine how the capacity to
recognise emotion in others, and the ability to use this information to
guide social behaviour develops in childhood and declines in older
adulthood. More specifically, this project will focus on investigating the
cognitive, neural and physiological mechanisms that underpin social
cognitive abilities and emotion processing. With a particular view to
understanding the way in which these capacities develop throughout
childhood and decline in older adulthood. The project will employ a range
of methodologies, including skin conductance responses (SCR), facial
electromyography (EMG) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).
