Paid Vacancies

Any available paid job openings will be advertised on the UCL website or on the Anna Freud Centre website, or more generally on the UK’s academic job website. Unfortunately we generally do not have capacity to take on unsolicited volunteers.

PhD Students

We currently have limited capacity to take on PhD students and entry for any funded PhD place at UCL is extremely competitive. To be admitted as a research student applicants usually obtain funding from a recognised funding body. For details of the PhD application process at UCL click here.

Those interested in doing a PhD in the Unit’s research areas and with a competitive academic track record may make preliminary contact with either Professor Viding (if the focus is conduct problems / callous-emotional traits) or Professor McCrory (if the focus is maltreatment / resilience).
