PhD – Developmental Psychobiology

 

Apply before: February 15th, 2019
Institute:
Radboud University Medical Center Nijmegen
Job specification: The aim of this PhD project is to test a new psychobiological model of human development within an ongoing longitudinal study in healthy children (BIBO study). In this model, early life gut microbiota mediates the associations between stress early in life and adolescent brain, behavior, and cognition. As previously shown in mice, adolescence may constitute an additional sensitive period in development, next to early life, in which dysregulation of the microbiota-gut-brain axis may contribute to what are often first manifestations of psychopathology. In this study, we will hence study the independent and potentially combined contributions of stress and microbiota in early life and in adolescence on brain structure, brain function, behavior problems, and cognitive capacities.

PhD – Child Problem Behavior and Teacher-Child Relationships

 

Apply before: April 15th, 2019
Institute:
KU Leuven School Psychology and Development in Context (Belgium)
Job specification: Current models of intervention have little attention to the complexities of constructing supportive teacher-child relationships with behaviorally-challenging or aggressive children and the emotional demands placed on teachers. One of the reasons is that we lack a clear understanding of more implicit relationship processes. In addition, there is also insufficient knowledge of how to assess and change negative implicit relationship processes. This proposal for strategic basic research addresses these concerns. The first goal is to increase understanding of the complexities of teacher-child relationships by examining the understudied role of implicit relationship processes in the school adjustment and sociobehavioral development of children with behavior problems. The second goal is to examine how teachers can be made aware of implicit relationship processes in relationships with behaviorally challenging children in such a way that teacher-child relationships can be improved.

PhD – Stress regulation decomposed

 

Apply before: January 15th, 2019
Institute:
Université Grenoble Alpes (France)
Job specification: PhD position: Stress regulation decomposed: A mechanistic approach to understand physiological and emotional regulation of stress to improve well-being.

The downregulation of stress has gained momentum in the last years as various methods became popular (e.g., mindfulness training). The accuracy of psychological research in the last few years has been debated. The theories on psychological mechanisms underpinning stress regulation, as well as on the individual role in stress regulation (stress mindsets and/or control) are therefore also underdeveloped. This project will consist of several stages:

  1. Meta-Analysis
  2. Measurement Assessment
  3. Registered Report
