The University is currently recruiting PhD students. If you are interested in applying for a PhD in the field of eating behaviour (adult or child eating behaviour) please contact me directly by email for further details of potential projects.
If you are a PhD qualified researcher from outside of the UK and are interested in applying for a Marie-Curie Fellowship to come and work at Aston on projects of mutual interest (related to eating behaviour or weight) please contact me for further details (also see: http://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/about-mca/actions/index_en.htm).
Dr Claire Farrow is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology. Claire is interested in the factors that influence eating behaviour and weight gain or weight loss, in adults and children. She has overseen and conducted several longitudinal studies concerned with the development of eating behaviours in early life. She is involved in research about parental influences on child food preferences and weight; how siblings influence each other’s eating; parental perceptions of child weight and weight monitoring feedback; and the experiences of discrimination for individuals who are overweight. Claire is a Chartered Psychologist and an invited committee member of the National Steering Group for Feeding Disorders in Children. She is also a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society.
