The University of Goettingen and the German Primate Research Center are advertising 12 fully funded PhD positions in psychology, primatology, behavioral biology and linguistics as part of the DFG Research Training Group “Understanding Social Relationships”.
The deadline is 10 April 2018.
Applications are invited for two fully-funded Oxford–Calleva Graduate Scholarships, supported by the University of Oxford and the Calleva Research Centre at Magdalen College, Oxford. The successful applicants will be part of an interdisciplinary team working on a 4-year project funded by the Calleva Research Centre at Magdalen College, to begin in October 2018.
The Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse recruitment campaign is now open for the academic year 2018-19. Deadline for applications is December 31st.
The “Research Fellowships” offer can be viewed directly at (https://www.iast.fr/apply).
We welcome contributions from researchers within a large range of disciplines, in particular from anthropology, biology, history, law, mathematics, philosophy, political science, psychology and sociology, though motivated applications from outside these disciplines will be given full consideration.
Our team is conducting two meta-analyses:
1. Moral Licensing
Specifically, we are interested in looking at the moderating effects of study procedures (such as whether the participants were observed during the licensing manipulation), and characteristics of the measures (such as the ambiguity of the dependent measure) on the moral licensing effect.
2. Watching Eyes Effects
Specifically, we are examining whether exposure length to observation cues (long or short) explain the inconsistencies in the literature regarding the impact of eye images on generosity.
Now we are looking for any unpublished experimental studies (e.g., manuscripts, doctoral dissertations, file drawer) or data on these topics.
The deadline for submissions for the Owen F Aldis Scholarship, which funds research costs up to $8000, has been extended to January 15th, 2018. The Owen F. Aldis Scholarship Fund was established to support graduate studies in human ethology, defined as the biological study of human behaviour.
