I am Dr Benjamin T. Vincent. I have been a lecturer in Psychology at the University of Dundee since 2007. Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Bristol, UK with Prof. Tom Troscianko and Prof Iain D. Gilchrist. And before that I obtained both my undergraduate degree (Neuroscience, 1st Class Hons) and DPhil (Neuroscience, supervised by Dr Roland Baddeley) at the University of Sussex, UK.

Academic Collaborators


I regularly run short semester-long research apprenticeship projects. I normally advertise these to undergraduates, but if you have a particular interest then do feel free to email.


I'm happy to hear from anyone wishing to apply for PhD funding in my areas of interest. See here for any current PhD funding opportunities.


I'm always open to putting a grant together for post-doc funding. Aside from the research councils, the AXA Research Fund is appropriate.
