The Behavioural Science Institute (BSI) Graduate School offers talented Master’s students the opportunity to write a research project proposal and become a PhD student in developmental psychology. Please write a short research proposal about a research topic of your choice. Your proposal should have a good fit with research currently conducted in the Social Development research programme. We study caregiver-child interaction in early and middle childhood, peer relationships in middle childhood and adolescence, and social relationships in later life. We study typical and atypical populations (e.g. ADHD, visually impaired children). We combine traditional longitudinal and observational methods of developmental research with modern methods from psychobiology and neuroscience.
