The current position is part of the research project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation entitled "The current challenge in attentional-control research: Establishing reliable and valid measures". The purpose of this 4-year project is to investigate attentional control (also referred as cognitive control, executive functions, or inhibition). This cognitive ability allows us to focus on relevant information while ignoring irrelevant information so that we can pursue our current goals. In this project, several studies will be conducted to investigate whether reliable and valid measures of attentional control can be established. This project is at the intersection of cognitive psychology, individual-differences research, and psychological research methods.
