Award to support child psychology research

The Undergraduate Research Assistantship Scheme is awarded by the British Psychological Society (BPS) as a way to encourage undergraduate psychology students to get involved in research.

Dr Josephine Chen-Wilson will be working with second year student Victoria Theobald, examining children’s and adolescents’ reasoning and thinking.

The study will be presented as a research poster at the next BPS annual conference in May 2015.

Dr Chen-Wilson said: “I am very pleased that the project was recognised by the BPS as a worthwhile study and excited to have the opportunity to conduct the study with Victoria's input.”

Awards are made to researchers to allow them to provide an undergraduate with 'hands-on' experience of research during the summer holiday, to gain an insight into scientific research and to encourage them to consider an academic career.

The scheme is a prestigious award that marks out a student as a future researcher and potential academic.
