We’re looking for a smart, inspiring colleague to join our faculty. Applicants will preferably have research expertise in anxiety and/or depression in children and/or adolescents. A particular interest in working with a multidisciplinary team of graduate students, faculty, programmers and designers on projects aimed at developing and evaluating tech-based mental health interventions (e.g. applied games and interactive social apps) are encouraged to apply. We’re particularly keen on people who would be motivated to work in collaboration with the Games for Emotional and Mental Health Lab (www.gemhlab.com).

International colleagues are welcome to apply but being able to contribute to teaching is an important requirement (teaching in English is fine as long as there is relevant expertise in developmental psychology/psychopathology).

If you know any potential candidates, please point them to our online application process and/or email me directly for more information. If you can forward to any other departments or faculty with potential candidates, I’d appreciate it. I’ve attached the ad for the job as well as the link below.

Is morality always and everywhere, cooperative?

Many theories in the field of morality research claim that morality is about concepts like cooperation and altruism. The theory of “Morality As Cooperation” has used game-theoretical principles to derive seven domains in which morality should occur. This provides an alternative to, for example, “Moral Foundations Theory”, which was derived in a data-driven way. To expand on this, we invite three speakers as a build-up towards a debate, entitled “Is morality always and everywhere, cooperative?”
You are cordially invited think about the future of morality research with us through this symposium, taking place on Tuesday, Nov 7th (13:30-17:00) at IPO 0.98, TU Eindhoven. The symposium will be relevant for disciplines such as (developmental) psychology, anthropology, philosophy, ethnography, evolutionary science, and human technology interaction. Participation is free of charge, subject to enrollment here.
