Faculty and grad students from the UF social area (and across psychology) got together over the weekend at Erin Westgate's home for fall pumpkin carving festivities. Highlights include a #UF gator-lantern, free-handed by talented Lauren & Steve Weisberg (faculty in cog psych), and fantastic pumpkin attempts by the department psych kiddos!
Thinking about doing a PhD in social psychology? Curious about boredom, interest, and thinking (and why it’s so hard for so many of us)? Broadly interested in the reasons behind why people think and feel the way they do? Come join us in warm sunny Florida!
The Florida Social Cognition and Emotion Lab is accepting graduate students for fall 2020; all accepted students in the department are fully funded (all tuition paid) for five years, and receive a stipend to offset living costs. We currently have additional funding to release graduate students from teaching obligations in their first two years of the program.
To apply, please email Prof Erin Westgate to express interest (more info on why and how to email faculty prior to applying). Visit the department web page for more info for prospective graduate students and how submit your application. To learn more about the social area, and additional faculty you might be interested in working with, check out the area webpage.
