PhD position in an international research project, Medical School Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany

The unit of cognitive psychology (Prof. Dr. Tilo Strobach) is offering a three-year PhD position (65%) focused on ”Cognitive training effects across the adult lifespan: A diffusion modeling approach”. This project is part of the OTA grant with the same name and is in cooperation with Claudia von Bastian (University of Sheffield) and Sylvie Belleville (University of Montreal). The goal of this project is to investigate the mechanisms of cognitive training with a focus on training interventions targeting processing speed and attentional control, by applying diffusion modeling. The investigation of these mechanisms is realized across the lifespan.

Application deadline: December 10, 2020, until filled

Contact: Tilo Strobach

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.
