Postgraduate study

Join us

We offer two routes of postgraduate study within the Behavioural Science Lab (BSL):


BSL are interested in any project that falls under the broad label of behavioural science, but we take a strongly evolutionary view for most of our work. 

Current projects  at both MSc and PhD level include:

Alongside empirical work there is a strong theoretical and philosophical line of work within BSL, carried out by Tom Dickins at times with various collaborators. A particular interest here is the structure of evolutionary theory and its many uses.  Most recently a monograph in this area has been completed, and an edited volume is forthcoming.

We are open to any ideas within the behavioural sciences, both empirical and theoretical, so please do make contact if you are interested in working with us. To do this email Tom Dickins:
