The Junior Researcher Programme (JRP) is currently looking for six engaged PhD students and postdoctoral researchers in psychology (or related fields) to become Research Supervisors for the jSchool 2023. The jSchool is a volunteer-driven and non-profit initiative that enables psychology students from around the world to conduct a 13-month research project under the supervision of early-career researchers. If you are interested in this opportunity, you can find further details below. We kindly ask you to also circulate this email to anyone else who might be interested in becoming a Research Supervisor.
This year’s jSchool will take place from 31st July to 6th of August 2023 in Siena, Italy. This year’s theme will be Biased beliefs: the psychology of irrationality and its consequences.
We understand irrationality broadly and encourage applications for projects across all areas of psychology. These could include biases (including cognitive biases), misinformation susceptibility, belief in conspiracy theories, and science skepticism but could also explore the impact of unfounded and biased beliefs in the domain of public health and well-being, decision-making, politics, communication, and more.
Research Supervisors propose a research project within the theme and then lead a team of six students to develop the study at the jSchool. All projects should be conducted in 13 months within the structure of the JRP. The programme finishes with the annual JRP Conference held at Corpus Christi College at the University of Cambridge.
All details are provided in the attached document and more information on the JRP and jSchool is available on our website. Before you apply, please make sure you have read the application guidance document published on our website. Applications are open until 17:00 CET on the 11th of February 2023.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out, I’ll be happy to answer any questions.
JRP Research Officer 2023-2024
