PhD position on the contagious nature of cognitive control, KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium

We are looking for a motivated PhD student to conduct research in the field of cognitive control under the supervision of Eva Van den Bussche, Kobe Desender and Gethin Hughes. The position is for four years (provided positive periodic evaluation), preferably starting Nov 2019 or earlier. Candidates should have a Master’s degree in Psychology or Cognitive Neuroscience. You will prepare a PhD within the field of cognitive control. Crucially, we are interested in whether and how our cognitive control exertion is affected by the cognitive control exerted by the people surrounding us. Put differently: is cognitive control contagious?

All information and the procedure to apply can be found here. Note that, to apply, you need to provide a CV (including two email addresses of academic referees) and motivation letter. Interested candidates can apply until May 6.

For more information contact Eva Van den Bussche or Kobe Desender.
