The Psychology in Education Research Centre (PERC) conducts innovative and applied psychological research relevant to education and educational settings. Our goal is to conduct research that is both rigorous and broadly accessible to the psychology and educational communities.
Ways of connecting with PERC
We are always interested in accommodating undergraduate and postgraduate research volunteers (from York or elsewhere) who are interested in working with us at PERC. If you are interested, please contact Rob Klassen.
BSc Psychology in Education students at York will be able to undertake dissertation research supported by PERC members. If you would like to find out more about the kinds of dissertations you can undertake with PERC, or if you have ideas that you would like to see whether we can help you with, please contact Claudine Bowyer-Crane.
MA and PhD research
PERC works with MA in Education (by research) and PhD students on dissertation projects or research internships during their course. Find out more about staff members’ research interests. If you are interested in working with PERC members on a PhD, please contact Chris Kyriacou. We can help you prepare an application for your PhD and will let you know of any available funding from PERC.
If you would like to work with a PERC member as a postdoc, we will be happy to discuss possible project ideas and work with you to prepare a grant application. To discuss possible postdoc opportunities please contact Rob Klassen.
If you are a researcher at any level and would like to spend some time at PERC, we can usually arrange anything from a brief visit to an extended stay. If you would like to spend some time working with one or more of PERC staff as a visitor please contact Rob Klassen.
