Faculty of Social Sciences
Your research will be part of the Developmental Psychopathology research programme of the Behavioural Science Institute (headed by Prof. Isabela Granic). We have a young, enthusiastic, multidisciplinary team, including a large group of PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers. Our research group has strong long-standing collaborations with international game design departments across the globe (e.g. the University of Southern California and the Cologne Game Lab), with mental health and youth care agencies in the region (www.insideout.nl/), and with the Trimbos Institute(Netherlands Institute for Mental Health and Addiction). For more information about the research programme you will be most closely associated with, see www.gemhlab.com
The Behavioural Science Institute (BSI) is part of the Faculty of Social Sciences. The BSI is a multidisciplinary behavioural research institute in which researchers collaborate across the boundaries of psychology, educational science and communication science. It has seven research programmes covering three main research themes: (1) development and learning, (2) psychopathology, health and well-being, and 3) social processes and communication. The BSI conducts applied/translational research as well as fundamental research. The BSI Graduate School (recognised by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research) is responsible for the training of PhD candidates.
The BSI has state-of-the-art research facilities for observational studies, experiments, eye-tracking studies, EEG measurements and GSR recording, psychobiological research, and behavioural measurements in both real and 3D virtual environments. The neuroimaging facilities of the Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging (fMRI, MEG, and TMS) are available for research on the neural bases of behaviour.
The School of Pedagogical Sciences (PWO) currently has about 1,000 students. The PWO study programmes focus on questions concerning parenting, education, learning, and typical and atypical development of children and adults. The School advocates the application of pedagogical and educational knowledge in scientific research according to a scientist-practitioner model. The study programmes were rated as excellent in a recent survey among students.No commercial propositions please.
