Hiring our students is a way to get expertise with the backup of senior faculty.
The Psychology@LSE Department has over 130 MSc students and 30 PhD students from 4 research specialisms:
Organisational and Social Psychology
Social and Public Communication
Health, Community and Development
who can offer a range of skills useful to employers.
Our students have the ability to develop theoretical and empirical approaches that can be applied to real-world settings and phenomena. For example, current research by research students has applications to, inter alia, policing and fear of crime, environmental decision making, health behaviour, race relations, team-building in organisations, and the effects of management consultancy on organisations. These approaches adopted can employ a range of techniques ranging from experiments and quantitative measurements (e.g., questionnaires, content analysis), through qualitative techniques (e.g., interviews, focus groups), to action research. Many of our students have already had a career in business and are therefore mature, and are quite aware of what it takes to work in organisational context.
If you are interested in employing one of our research students pleaseemail the department manager.
