PhD position summary/title: PhD Position: Neural and Computational Control Mechanisms of Social-Emotional Regulation
This project focuses on how individuals rapidly consider action goals alternative to their automatic action tendencies, and select an option based on potential consequences of those alternative action goals. The project considers two ways people can overcome automatic social-emotional action tendencies: internal goal-switching, internally generating alternative goals for those actions; or learning external outcomes, based on learned consequences of an action. We aim to assess how the combination of these two neuro-computational mechanisms explains human social-emotional regulation and its variation across individuals in relation to social anxiety.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate: Cross-modal Art Perception at the Donders Centre for Cognition
When looking at a painting we often have an immediate impression, which determines whether we like it or not. This aesthetic appreciation likely involves the visual characteristics of the painting as well as the personal characteristics of the observer. Past research on aesthetic appreciation has largely taken a unimodal approach (e.g. concerning only visual aspects). However, modern society has an abundance of multisensory input in art, as well as in games, movies, and virtual-reality applications. Our aesthetic appreciation of these applications is therefore likely to depend on different types of, not yet fully understood, cross-modal influences. At the same time, it is expected that the impact of such multisensory input will only increase in the near future. The current project aims at a better understanding of multimodal processing involved in aesthetic appreciation. The collected data serve as input for the development of a ‘synesthesiser’, a neural network that can connect images and sound.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate: Age Effects on Memory Strategy Use at the Donders Centre for Cognition
In this project, you will delve into the neurocognitive mechanisms that may influence memory strategy use in aging. Specifically, you will test the hypothesis that with aging, multiple mechanisms that are involved in optimal memory strategy use (i.e. strategy initiation, effectiveness, and utilisation), are affected. For this, you will examine how these mechanisms may change over the adult lifespan, acknowledging the fact that aging should be considered as a gradual, continuous process. Moreover, you will identify neuroanatomical and cognitive correlates of aging-related changes in memory strategy initiation and effectiveness, using an existing database (n≈175) that includes data on memory strategy use and multiple neuropsychological tests, and neuroimaging data collected with MRI (e.g. T1, DWI, rsfMRI). Finally, you will use an ecologically valid approach to test memory strategy use in a daily life situation, for example by studying which strategies are used by older adults in order to memorise as much as possible from a conversation.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate at the Donders Centre for Cognition: Neuropsychological Applications of Implicit Learning
The Neuropsychology and Rehabilitation Psychology Department studies normal and pathological cognitive functioning across the lifespan. One of the functions that is frequently compromised in aging and multiple patient populations is episodic memory. This underscores the importance of developing adequate interventions to enhance memory performance, thereby improving the individual’s quality of life and long-term societal participation. This project contributes to this endeavour by systematically examining the potential of the principle of implicit learning to benefit memory performance.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate in Chromatin Pathobiology of Blood Cell Disorders
Many blood cell disorders are driven by mutations in transcription factors and DNA and histone modifiers. Understanding the pathogenic effects of the mutations and the deregulated biological pathways may provide new targets for precision medicine. In this PhD project, we will study how mutations affect chromatin biology and transcription to deregulate cell behaviour, focusing on myeloid malignancies. State-of-the-art models (disorder-specific induced pluripotent stem cells), techniques (CRISPR gene editing, ATAC-, ChIP- and RNA-sequencing and label-free quantitative mass spectrometry) and novel bioinformatics approaches will be used to gain a better insight into the pathogenesis of myeloid malignancies and identify new therapeutic targets for these diseases. As a member of the Martens lab at the Department of Molecular Biology, you will enter our four-year PhD programme at Radboud University. Your teaching load may be up to 10% of your working time.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate in the History of Philosophy: Medieval Logic and Semantics
Are you a highly motivated aspiring junior researcher? Do you have a background in the history of philosophy, logic and science in the later middle ages? Do you want to develop your own innovative research ideas as a key member of a research team? The Center for the History of Philosophy and Science (CHPS) of the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies is looking to appoint a PhD candidate for the duration of four years, to conduct research on ‘Marsilius of Inghen on imagination and impossibility in logic and metaphysics’.
Deadline : 14 May 2023

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate in the History of Philosophy: Medieval and Renaissance Philosophy
Are you a highly motivated aspiring junior researcher? Do you have a background in the history of philosophy, logic, science or intellectual history between the later Middle Ages and the Renaissance? Do you want to develop your own innovative research ideas as a key member of a research team? The Center for the History of Philosophy and Science (CHPS) of the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies is looking to appoint a PhD candidate for the duration of four years, to conduct research on ‘The Via Marsiliana Across the Impossible’.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate: Audiovisual Speech Perception at the Donders Centre for Cognition
Human face-to-face conversations are inherently multimodal, combining speech with gestures that are closely temporally aligned to the spoken signal. However, how this synchrony between voice and hands impacts audiovisual speech perception remains understudied. Recently, the ‘manual McGurk effect’ (Bosker & Peeters, 2021) provided a proof-of-concept that the timing of simple up-and-down hand gestures (beat gestures) can change what words we hear. This PhD project aims to determine how and when gestural timing influences audiovisual speech perception, specifically targeting more naturalistic communicative settings.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Candidate: The Use and Social Evaluation of British English Uptalk
We are looking for a PhD candidate in sociophonetics, focusing on the study of prosody, for a project on uptalk in British English. Uptalk is defined as the use of pitch rises (instead of falls) at the end of statements. Stereotypically, uptalk is said to indicate speaker insecurity or a cooperative attitude, while its use has been associated with younger women who are often said to talk as if they are asking questions.
