The Department of Psychology is delighted to be offering this three year studentship in “Group regulation of alcohol consumption behaviours”, supported by Alcohol Research UK.

This studentship is concerned with gaining a better understanding of how group processes shape and maintain alcohol behaviours. Adopting a multi-methodological approach that comprises experimental, ethnographic /qualitative and cutting-edge experiential sampling methodologies, the aim is to examine systematically how group dynamics may be harnessed for reducing problematic levels of alcohol consumption.  Based at Edge Hill University in the North West of England, the PhD student will join the Health and Social Issues Research Group in the Department of Psychology and be part of a team investigating social, cultural and contextual influences on substance use behaviours.
