Find out more about joining the Social Evolution and Behaviour Lab

UCL is a wonderful vibrant institution in the heart of London. We are based in the Department of Experimental Psychology, which is home to over 30 internationally-recognised scholars working on a vast array of exciting and innovative projects. We also benefit from close links with the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, an interdisciplinary research institute with core strengths in brain and behaviour.


Our division offers a wide range of taught and research Masters programmes I am very happy to supervise Masters students who want to work on questions pertaining to social evolution. Please email me to discuss your project.


PhD students are very welcome to contact me with ideas for research, though funding cannot be guaranteed. Available studentships will be advertised via this page and via Twitter. UCL offers some funded scholarships for excellent students, from the UK or overseas. In addition, our department offers a small number of demonstratorships each year that provide a route into a PhD – see here for more details.

Current PhD Opportunities: We are part of the London ESRC-DTP, which will offer ~40 funded studentships starting in 2017. If you believe you are competitive for a PhD position and would like to work with us, please get in touch.

For early-career postdocs, UCL offers Excellence Fellowships. The next round for these awards opens in May 2017. Please contact me if you are interested in applying and would like to work in the Social Evolution and Behaviour Lab.
