Two PhD positions at University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg

Two PhD positions are open for applications at the University of Luxembourg, Cognitive Neuroscience Research unit (Head: Christine Schiltz), COSA institute. Both of them imply experimental work with EEG, both in adults and children.

You will be part of the Cognitive Neuroscience Research group which belongs to the COSA Institute and is interested in understanding higher-order cognitive processes and their development. We focus on numeracy and literacy in typical and atypical development, using behavioural and EEG methods. The current project “The neural bases for reading in languages differing in orthographic transparency” will focus on comparing how the brain represents written words in French, German and English in monolinguals and in bi/multilinguals, and on evaluating reading acquisition in children in their first (L1) and second language (L2), according to L1 orthographic transparency. It will involve behavioural and electrophysiological recordings (EEG), both in adults and in children.

PhD Position, University of Zurich, Switzerland

We invite applications for one Doctoral (Ph.D.) Position (60%, 4 years), starting in January 2023 (can be delayed if necessary). The successful applicant will work with Dr. Gidon Frischkorn on a project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation entitled: “The binding hypothesis – a unified account of cognitive individual differences?”. The project aims to improve the measurement of declarative and procedural binding ability in working memory and investigate if this ability can provide a unified account of individual differences in cognitive abilities.

PhD position, France

A PhD position is available to work on the ANR project 'Cognitive Aging, Emotion, Strategies: studies in memory and arithmetic'. Emotion-cognition interactions change during ageing: Some effects of emotion on cognition decrease with age, others increase. We ignore the underlying age-related changes in emotion-cognition interactions. To address this issue, we shall test the original strategic variations hypothesis : effects of emotion on cognition are mediated by differences in strategies and in how participants use, execute, and select strategies.
