Queen’s University Belfast PhD Studentships for International Students in UK
Children’s ability to experience the emotion of relief is poorly understood. This PhD Studentships for International Students project will aim to determine: (1) when the ability to experience relief develops during childhood; (2) how the development of the ability to experience relief relates to developments in children’s abilities to think about time; and (3) whether the emerging ability to experience relief plays a role in children’s decision making.
The project will be based in the School of Psychology at Queen’s University Belfast and be supervised by Professor Teresa McCormack and Dr Aidan Feeney. The successful candidate will be part of a larger interdisciplinary project on relief, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, involving Queen’s University Belfast and the Universities of Warwick and Birmingham.
