The bursary is part of a project led by Dr Chris Roe and funded by the Fundação Bial, Portugal, and will involve

• survey work to develop and psychometrically evaluate a new questionnaire-based measure of lability;

• a series of three experimental studies to assess the relationship between lability and performance at a laboratory-based micro-psychokinesis task

•some details of these projects are determined by the conditions of funding, but there will be some scope for the successful candidate to modify or extend the research goals
