Gender Studies (Ref.: CEX2021-001161-M-20-3)
This line studies the psychological and neural underpinnings of gender discrimination and violence and its relationship with ideological variables, prejudiced beliefs, myths, as well as gender power asymmetry. CIMCYC researchers have made significant contributions to disentangling the role of individual, interpersonal and macrosocial structural factors in predicting intimate partner violence against women. Other studies investigate differences in structural brain anatomy in female victims, using a whole brain methodology. Our investigations have also transferred to society, for example, conducting the first macro-survey on intimate partner violence at the country of El Salvador. CIMCYC researchers have also made relevant contributions to other forms of violence against women, such as sexual assault or street sexual harassment. Degree(s) required: Undergraduate in Psychology Additional (desirable) training: Master in Social Psychology. Experience on designing and conducting research and analyzing data in Social Psychology.
