About the programme
Psychology is the largest subject group in the School of Social Sciences at Leeds Beckett University. In recent years we have significantly developed our research programme, which is currently organised around three core areas: Cognition & Behaviour; Gender & Sexuality; Health Psychology. Each of these areas is led by a Professor and within each area there are several specialist research groups and associated PhD students. In the Cognition & Behaviour area, staff research a range of topics including memory, human movement, addiction, creativity and communication; in Gender & Sexuality, topics include sexual harassment, food, masculinity and sexual bullying; in Health Psychology, topics include chronic illness and quality of life, psychological interventions, health and safety at work, and body image. We are seeking to grow our PhD community further with three funded studentships in our core areas: Cognition and Behaviour, Health Psychology, Gender & Sexuality. Please see the attached available PhD projects document for information on proposed PhD projects available.
