PhD in Cognitive Psychology,Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Jena, Germany

Targeted project start is October, 1st, 2019; the contract is limited to three years.

The position is part of the newly established distributed Research Unit „Binding and Retrieval in Action Control“, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG FOR 2790). The successful candidate will work in a research network distributed among seven universities with more than 20 researchers who aim to gain deeper insights into fundamental processes of human action control and regulation. Candidates for the position are expected to pursue a PhD in Psychology.

The new position is part of the project „Stimulus-Response bindings and their relation to Pavlovian Conditioning“ (principal investigator: Dr. Carina Giesen). The project combines research on automatic action regulation with paradigms of learning research (Pavlovian Conditioning, Contingency learning) and thus covers cognitive and experimental psychology, psychology of learning and motivational research. The project will endorse behavioral experiments as research method of choice (with a focus on reaction time measurement). However, our lab covers the use of other state-of-the-art research methods (for instance, EEG and thermal sensory stimulation). The project as well as the Research Unit as a whole reflect ideal conditions to start a successful academic career. Application deadline is on the 1st of August 2019.

Postdoctoral position, Braem Lab, Department of Experimental Psychology, Ghent University, Belgium

We are looking for applicants for a two-year (potentially three-year) postdoctoral position at Ghent University to work with us on the ERC project CoCoFlex, investigating the contextual modulation and selective reinforcement of cognitive flexibility. Candidates should have a PhD and, ideally, have a background in research on cognitive flexibility, cognitive control, reinforcement learning, or decision making. We are mostly interested in studying behaviour, in combination with computational modeling or fMRI. However, depending on the interests and strengths of the candidate, other methods can be considered as well.
