Applications are invited from MA and PhD students, junior faculty, researchers and professionals in universities and other institutions who are working on topics related to political psychology. Undergraduates without a university degree will not be considered.


The course is open to all applicants in the general domain of social sciences who are working on topics related to political psychology. Basic training in social science research design and methods, including quantitative methods, is expected. In addition to a CV (including, where applicable, a list of publications and conference presentations) and a statement of purpose (300 word motivation statement for taking the course), applicants are required to submit with the application an outline for a research paper (500 words, see "How to apply" for more details) that is related to political psychology, preferably but not necessarily to the topics that are covered in this course. If accepted to the course, the participants are required to submit research paper draft and/or a sample of their work in progress based on the submitted outline (approximately 3000 words). The latter will be at the focus of the course through workshops, presentations and discussion.
