Research Internship Scheme

We are dedicated to providing meaningful opportunities for our students, and as testimony to this, we have provided opportunities for our students to take part in a Paid Research Internship Scheme. An early version of this scheme was previously trialed, in which approximately one-third of our students opted to volunteer to assist with staff research. Given its success, 2015 marked the first year of our paid scheme, in which approximately 20% of our current second year undergraduate students were employed as Research Interns across a range of staff research projects, with some of these projects leading to published journal articles.

Examples of projects included:

  • Attentional bias to pictures and words
  • Autistic traits
  • Are emoji emotional?
  • Multiple perceptive-taking
  • Alcohol and inhibition
  • Behaviour change and food awareness
  • Personality and offending behaviour
  • The neural underpinnings of action simulation
  • Eye-movements and memory

For more information about this exciting scheme, please contact our coordinator, Dr Stergios Makris
