NB: The com­pe­ti­tion is now closed and all appli­cants have been noti­fied of the outcome. Thank you for your entries!

Pro­fes­sor Dorothy Bishop retires in 2022. In honour of Dorothy’s con­tri­bu­tions to science and her long­stand­ing rela­tion­ship with Gorilla Experiment Builder, we are offer­ing the Bishop Prize to two PhD stu­dents or early career researchers (PhD with < 5 years of post-PhD research expe­ri­ence, adjust­ed for career breaks) wanting to run an online study with Goril­la’s Game Builder.

We par­tic­u­lar­ly welcome appli­ca­tions that seek to use Gorilla Game Builder to study research ques­tions about lan­guage, devel­op­ment, and/or devel­op­men­tal dis­or­ders. However, appli­ca­tions beyond these areas are encouraged.

The recip­i­ents of the Bishop Prize will receive:

  • 1 x Gorilla researcher sub­scrip­tion for 1 year
  • 1 x Gorilla Game Builder licence for 1 year
  • 1 x oppor­tu­ni­ty to speak at the BeOn­line con­fer­ence in 2023 to present game-based research

All appli­cants must submit an appli­ca­tion form. All sec­tions should be written for a non-expert audience.

In the inter­est of open science prac­tices, recip­i­ents are expect­ed to:

  • Pre-reg­is­ter their study
  • Post their task/experiment to the Gorilla Open Mate­ri­als Repos­i­to­ry at an appro­pri­ate point
