Fixed - £14,777 annual stipend

The Psychology group in the Department of Psychology, Sociology & Politics at Sheffield Hallam University intends to appoint 3 Psychology Demonstrators on a three-year fixed term studentship from September 2018. Demonstrators undertake certain teaching assistant duties such as helping conduct psychology laboratories, in addition to working towards a PhD qualification. We are particularly interested in supervising projects in the following areas, and preference will be given to applicants with an interest in developing research in one of these areas, although applications in other areas are also welcome:

  • Charting the language of Peace Talk: A project in critical discursive peace psychology
  • The Disgusting Self: Methodological and Theoretical Developments on the Effects of Self-Disgust on Mental Health Outcomes
  • Self-Harm in Secure Hospital Settings: Causes and Prevention
  • Does the sensation of being in a Virtual Reality environment affect our attention?

As a minimum, applicants should possess a 1st or 2.1 Honours degree in Psychology. A Masters degree in a relevant subject area would be an advantage.

PhD - Tuition fees paid and an annual stipend of £14,777 for 3 years (subject to satisfactory progress).
