PhD Students

The LiLaC Lab is looking for potential graduate student applicants. Please send Courtenay, Jo, or Sarah an email with an introduction, your  CV, and a brief (one side of A4) summary of the research question you would like to answer in your PhD work. We will then advise on whether the proposed work fits with current lab priorities. All potential applicants will need to apply directly to UCL.

Undergraduate Lab Assistants

We often have paid lab assistant positions available during the academic year. The focus of these positions will vary, but may include assisting with data collection in schools, interviewing parents, data entry, or general lab maintenance. Students should have a strong academic record, and be highly organised and reliable. While no experience is necessary, it would be desirable to have completed coursework in developmental or experimental psychology or linguistics, possess basic computer skills and have previous research and/or  work experience with children.

MSci Students

UCL PALS now offers an MSci option which includes a fourth year placement in a research lab for both work experience and an advanced research project. Please contact Courtenay for further details.

Summer Interns

Each summer, we host student interns in the lab.  Independent funding can be obtained from the Experimental Psychology Society or Wellcome summer bursary schemes. Please note the deadline for these applications is usually in February/March, so please contact Courtenay well in advance of the deadline if you are interested in pursuing this option. Occasionally we are able to fund bursaries through research grants- keep an eye on News & Blog for upcoming opportunities.

International Visitors

We are pleased to host visitors to the lab whenever possible. Please send a request directly to Courtenay who can advise on dates and practicalities. Please note: ethical, funding, and time constraints mean that it is rarely possible to initiate a completely new round of data collection during a study visit. It may be possible to join in with existing studies, or find time and space to analyse and discuss existing data and future funding applications.
