The Institute for Conflict, Cooperation and Security (ICCS) invites applications for a 3-year studentship to undertake a PhD within the area of Social Neuroscience and Security.

The Institute for Conflict, Cooperation and Security was recently awarded a major grant to develop a new research stream in social neuroscience and international security, building on its vibrant research culture in the fields of trust and cooperation. As part of this project, the ICCS is seeking to appoint a series of new posts, including two new PhD studentships in the areas of Cybersecurity and Social Neuroscience and Security. This exciting opportunity will contribute to advancing the work of the ICCS in establishing the University of Birmingham as one of Europe’s leading centres for interdisciplinary security expertise.

Applications are invited in the broad area of social neuroscience and security. Preference will be given to applicants with an expertise, or strong interest, in trust and cooperation at the international level. Candidates with a background in Psychology and/or International Relations are encouraged to apply. Applications are particularly encouraged from those willing to work across the disciplines of Psychology and International Relations.
