Research in Psychology
As a School of Applied Psychology with a vigorous program of research we have research laboratories and facilities, some of which are shared between groups.
The School of Applied Psychology’s research is organised around three research groups that reflect the expertise and interests of current staff and contemporary themes in Applied Psychology as follows:
The research groupings have been set up in order to ensure that there is a departmental focus on research, thus implementing the department's strategic objective with regard to research: "To establish and maintain an international reputation for research excellence, and the usefulness of that research, in designated area of applied psychology".
Each research grouping follows a programme of thematic development and mentoring, shared research and publication, and quest for research funding. The research experience within the groupings also contributes to the undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes to help our teaching be well informed and state of the art.
Each grouping has a group leader, who in each case is a researcher with an established international reputation. All members of staff are primary members of one grouping; some members of staff are secondary members of another grouping.
We have established Wednesday afternoons in our department as a focus for sharing research activities.
Once a fortnight, there is a departmental seminar, given by either a member of staff or an invited guest. All UCC staff and students are welcome to attend these seminars; if you are from outside of UCC please contact Dr. Samantha Dockray (firstname.lastname@example.org) first.
