This post is funded for three years from 1st October 2018 where you will be working as part of an interdisciplinary team led by Dr Aidan Feeney and Professor Teresa McCormack (Psychology, Queen's University Belfast), Professor Christoph Hoerl (Philosophy, Warwick) and Dr Sarah Beck (Psychology, Birmingham). You will be based at Queen's University Belfast, and will work with Dr Feeney and Professor McCormack to design and carry out novel experimental studies of the emotion of relief in adults. This is an opportunity for a researcher interested in working within an interdisciplinary team to develop an original and exciting programme of empirical work.
