Junior Researcher Programme

Dear Students,

The Junior Researcher Programme (JRP) is currently looking for Bachelor’s and Master’s students in psychology to become a Junior Researcher at jSchool 2023. The jSchool enables psychology students from around the world to conduct a 13-month research project under the supervision of early-career researchers, as well as an opportunity to network and meet other students and early-career researchers.

This year’s jSchool will occur 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. Junior Researchers can select from six proposed projects and will help to develop this study idea further in their teams during jSchool and the following 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.

More information on this year’s projects and the application can be found on our website. Before you apply, please make sure you have read the application guidance document. If you are wondering if you are eligible to apply, please check out our interactive eligibility checker. Applications are open until 23:59 CEST on the 8th of May 2023 via this form.

If you have any questions, you are very welcome to contact us (jschool@pscholars.org). We are also hosting a Q&A session on Zoom for any questions you might want to ask us directly. We are hosting two sessions to accommodate more people and take time zones into account, but they will otherwise be the same. The first session will be held on Saturday, 15th April, at 5 pm CEST. You can register for it HERE. The second session will be held on Saturday, 29th April, at 10 am CEST, and you can register for it HERE.

Best wishes,
Marija Petrović
JRP Research Officer 2023/2024
