Research Summer School for International Psychology Students

Dear Students,

The Junior Researcher Programme (JRP) is currently looking for Bachelor’s and Master’s students in psychology and/or behavioural sciences to become a Junior Researcher at jSchool 2024. The jSchool enables 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 the 7th to the 13th July 2024 in Siena, Italy. This year’s theme will be Economy of Well-Being: Harnessing Behavioral Science for Resilient Societies. Junior Researchers can select from five 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.
