The new three-year fully funded PhD studentship Opportunity is now available on offer available from 1 October 2018 at Queen’s University Belfast, UK. This studentship is available to Home/EU and Overseas students.
Queen’s is committed to welcome students from all over the world and helping them to achieve their ambitions. The Queen’s University Belfast today is an international centre of research and education and a major part of the fabric of Northern Ireland.

- Applications Deadline: July 13, 2018
- Course Level: Studentship is available to pursue PhD programme.
- Study Subject: The Project: Children’s ability to experience the emotion of relief is poorly understood. This PhD 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.
- Scholarship Award: The studentship is funded by the Leverhulme Trust for three years and the successful candidate will receive fees (at the Home/EU rate) plus an annual maintenance stipend of £14,777. Overseas applicants will be required to cover the annual difference between Home/EU and the overseas tuition fee rates.
