Project title: Interoceptive Experience in those who Engage in Self-injury
Start date: October 2018

Applications are invited for a 3-year PhD studentship to understand the relationship between emotion and interoceptive experience in those who engage in non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI). It is estimated that as many as 17.2% of the general population have engaged in self-injurious behaviour, therefore understanding precipitating factors is a priority. To date emotional dysregulation has been found to be one of the best predictors of NSSI. However, there are numerous emotion regulation strategies that do not involve self-injury – it is unclear why some individuals turn to NSSI whilst others do not or why NSSI is used to regulate emotion on some occasions and not others.


Candidates should have (or expect to obtain) a first class honours degree (or equivalent) and/or distinction at master’s degree level in a relevant subject area (e.g psychology, medicine, physiology, or other life sciences).
Candidates with experience in mental health research or clinical practice (e.g. voluntary work), or with an interest in mental health, especially self-harm, are encouraged to apply. Those with experience of psychophysiological methods would be particularly desirable, however full training will be provided.

Los interesados deben postular antes del 22 de enero de 2018 en el siguiente sitio web.
