Doctoraal onderzoeker: Determinanten van burn-out en re-integratie

 

Apply before: February 25th, 2019
Institute:
Universiteit Gent, Belgium
Job specification:
  • Het doctoraal mandaat kadert in een breder, interdisciplinair onderzoeksproject. De bedoeling van dit bredere project is een geïntegreerd perspectief te bieden op (i) de socio-economische en psychologische determinanten van burn-out en (ii) de gevolgen van burn-out voor de verdere carrière. Theoretisch worden psychologische modellen verrijkt met harde socio-economische indicatoren. Empirisch wordt kwalitatief en kwantitatief onderzoek gecombineerd om voor het eerst de dynamische en causale relaties tussen burn-out en andere socio-economische en psychologische constructen bloot te leggen. Meer informatie omtrent het project is te vinden in de projectomschrijving.

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 – Design and Implementation of Personalized Medicine Approaches in Mental Healthcare

 

Apply before: September 1st, 2018
Institute: KU Leuven (Belgium)
Job specification: When a person listens to sound, various parts of the auditory system are activated, including the brain. We can then measure the brain waves using EEG, decode them and draw conclusions about the auditory system.
We aim to develop a computational model of the auditory system, based on state-of-the art, deep-neural-network-based systems for automatic speech recognition. The model will be constructed by letting people listen to natural speech signals, and relating the recorded electroencephalogram (EEG) signal to the corresponding acoustic signals.
