Associate Professor Matthew Hornsey is a social psychologist. Since receiving his PhD from UQ in 1999 Matthew has conducted extensive research in the area of intergroup relations, identity threat, dissent, and activism, and currently he is Associate Dean (Research) in the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences at UQ.
In this lunchtime session Matthew will speak about life as a research academic – what do academics do all day, how did they get to do it, and why might you want to do it too? If the research component of 4th year has you wanting more, and you want to find out what it is like to be a research psychologist, come along to this session! Places are limited, so to attend please email firstname.lastname@example.org on August 2, 2010.
The session will be held in 24a-304 and will run from 1-2pm (so as to not clash with the Postgraduate Study Options Session).
