We are excited to announce that the lab has an open PhD position starting from july 1st 2022. The position is part of the brand new research training group “Emotional Learning and Memory” funded by the German Research Foundatation (DFG). More information can be found here.
The project aims to investigate how childhood adversity gets ‚under the skin‘ by
investigating the neuro-physiological mechanisms underlying response
differences to signals of threat and safety in individuals exposed and
not exposed to early life adversity. To this end, we use state of the
art functional and structural imaging in combination with defensive
startle responding, freezing-like behavior in humans and measures of physiological arousal and endocrine
stress responding (cortisol in hair and saliva) in a fear conditionig
and generalization paradigm.
Applications open until april 1st! Looking forward!
