Researchers in the 'Judgement and Decision Making' group in the School of Psychology at the University of Leicester are currently seeking participants (who are between the ages of 18 and 65 years old and are not studying Psychology) to take part in a study that investigates how people make decisions under uncertainty, by playing gambling type games.
The experiment will take 15-25 minutes and participants will have the chance to win a minimum of £2 up to a maximum of £6.
If you are interested in taking part or have any questions then please email Rosemary at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Male Volunteers wanted for Drugs and Crime study
Tammy Ayres is conducting research on drugs and crime for her PhD thesis. All answers provided will be anonymous and confidential. Although the questionnaire is fairly long the questions are important and she would be very grateful if you would complete the questionnaire.
You can only participate in this research if you are male, over 18 years old and you do not have a criminal record (i.e. no police cautions, have never been charged with a criminal offence or been found not guilty if charged). If you are not eligible but know someone who is then please forward this email. You can still participate if you have committed a crime, just as long as you have never been caught or arrested by the police.
If you are a recreational drug user and would like to take part in my PhD research (confidentiality is guaranteed), please complete the survey.
Volunteers needed for Psychology Study
I am looking for volunteers to take part in my study, which will look at perceptions of different groups of people. For your time volunteers will receive £2 cash. I anticipate that the study will take around 30-35 minutes to complete.
In this study you will be shown ten photographs comprising of two separate groups of people (e.g. a group of offenders); your task is to remember which people belong to which group - this is not as hard as it might sound. You will then be tested on your recognition of the faces. If you do not do very well, you will be given another opportunity to learn the faces – naturally this means the study will take a little longer. You will then complete a computerised speed task. Lastly you will complete a number of questions, including questions about your general attitudes toward each of the two groups of people.
If you have any questions do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
