Dear VNOP members,

Mark your calendars for the upcoming VNOP lab visit at Utrecht University on Zolpidem Cheap Online January 16th, 2020 from 10am-4pm. The aim of VNOP lab visits is to meet researchers in their daily working environment and gain information about ongoing research projects as well as the research methods they employ. The four research groups participating in the Utrecht Center for Child and Adolescent Studies (CAS) are looking forward to share their experiences with several methodological approaches with you, including the use of virtual reality for measurement and intervention, eye-tracking, large-scale longitudinal data collection (for example in a facility called KinderKennisCentrum), data collection in hard-to-reach groups such as refugees and observational methods.

Workshops and labdemo’s will be organized and there will be many opportunities for interaction and for sharing tips and tricks. More information on the program and registration will follow.

We hope to meet you in Utrecht on January 16th!

Student-assistant position, Social anxiety lab, Leiden university

Dr. A. Miers is looking for an enthusiastic, independent, and ambitious (research) master student to help investigate the effectiveness of a new, brief, intervention to help socially anxious youth. This research is funded by a grant from Leiden University Funds. The aim of the project is to test whether positive feedback from age peers can modify negative thinking in high socially anxious teenagers. The project will benefit early preventive methods for social anxiety and will be used to inform the development of an accessible adjunctive e-health intervention to help socially anxious teenagers approach social situations with confidence.

The applicant should have a strong affinity with scientific research and experience with working with adolescents. The project offers an excellent opportunity to be at the center of research directly relevant to clinical practice with very valuable research experience for your CV. This 0,2 FTE position is available for a period of up to 9 months.

If you are interested (or for enquiries) send your CV and (short) application letter to dr. Anne Miers: acmiers@fsw.leidenuniv.nl

PhD candidate Developmental Psychology RadboudUMC

http://hifa.org/9gugqdehs PhD candidate in Developmental Psychology

Job description

We are looking for a highly capable, eager, and intrinsically motivated PhD candidate. The project is embedded in our developmental psychobiology research group (DPBLab; PI: Prof.dr. Carolina de Weerth) at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour in Nijmegen (the Netherlands). This position is part of a program started with a personal VICI grant awarded to de Weerth by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The grant is on children’s gut microbial colonization in relation to stress early in life and later brain functioning, behavior, and cognition. The colonization of the gut by microbes is of interest because it is assumed to play an essential role in children’s physical, behavioral, and cognitive development.

The aim of this PhD project is to examine whether a naturalistic stress-reducing intervention program based on caregiver-infant contact can positively affect infant gut microbial colonization and infant behavioral and cognitive development. In an RCT, caregiver-infant contact in 3-month-old infants starting center-based childcare will be increased in the intervention group during the hours spent in childcare. Trained volunteers will provide this extra caregiver-infant contact.

REMINDER Job opening: Assistant Professor in the field of Aging/ Lifespan Psychology, Tilburg University

The Tilburg University department of Developmental Psychology is looking for an Assistant Professor in the field of Aging/ Lifespan Psychology, tenure track (1.0 fte, 5 years). Deadline for applying: August 31, 2019.

Description

Due to increasing life expectancy, society in many western countries is aging rapidly. Advancing age increases the risk for cognitive, physical and social challenges, which can have a negative impact on physical and mental health and engagement in social activities. Hence, adaptive coping with these age-related challenges can significantly improve individuals’ quality of life and contribute to aging proactively. However, individuals are differently affected and react differently to age-related challenges. We are interested in which personal characteristics and behaviors (e.g., genetics, brain mechanisms, cognition, life-style, self-regulation, motivation, personality) account for these inter-individual differences and act as protective or risk factors in the diversity of the aging process. In addition, we are also interested in examining which and how these personal characteristics and behaviors can be adjusted and influenced to the better.

We are looking for a candidate, who likes to work in an interdisciplinary research environment. This includes collaborating with members of the department on cognitive aging, personality development and/or forensic psychology. In addition, the successful candidate will contribute to research collaborations across departments at the Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences with a focus on successful aging.

Postdoc vacature in het Brain and Development Research Center, Universiteit Leiden

Projectbeschrijving

Het project “Raging hormones in the gifted: Anxiety, peer relations and giftedness in emerging adolescence” staat onder leiding van dr. Kiki Zanolie en dr. Marieke Bos bij de afdeling Ontwikkelings- en Onderwijspsychologie in het Brain & Development Research Center. In dit project wordt onderzocht hoe sociale relaties van invloed zijn op mentale gezondheid van adolescenten (typisch ontwikkelende en hoogbegaafde adolescenten) en hoe dit samenhangt met puberteits-veranderingen gedurende de adolescentie. Het project richt zich op twee belangrijke processen voor mentale gezondheid: i) het uitdoven van angst (extinctie leren) wat mogelijk ten opzichte van de kindertijd en volwassenheid is verminderd en ii) sociale status (b.v. populair vs afgewezen status).

Taken

De post-doc heeft als taak om een experimentele studie op te zetten en uit te voeren naar de rol van leeftijdsgenoten op mentale gezondheid in typisch ontwikkelende en hoogbegaafde kinderen. Het onderzoek zal zich richten op twee processen die karakteristiek zijn voor de transitie van kindertijd naar adolescentie: i) extinctie leren en ii) sociale status. De post-doc zal het onderzoek uitvoeren en hierover rapporteren in peer-reviewed internationale wetenschappelijke tijdschriften.

Dutch Scholars Reception SRCD2017

Kickstart your international research netwerk @ SRCD 2017!

You are cordially invited to attend the Dutch Scholars Reception SRCD 2017
on Friday April 7, 19:00 to 20.00 hours, in Meeting Room 13A (level 4) of the Austin Convention Center 500 E. Cesar Chavez St. Austin, TX 78701.

We would like you to invite international colleagues to come to this reception and mingle with Dutch Scholars. Therefore, we encourage you to take an international colleague with you and attend this event, sponsored by VNOP, ISED, and CAS.

The Dutch Scholars Reception at the 2015 SRCD conference was a huge success and very well attended.

Light snacks and a cash bar will be provided. The luxurious ambiance of the Center implies that drinks will be expensive. Fortunately, thanks to generous gifts of the above-mentioned societies we offer one free drink ticket for each introduce (international attendee; till we run out). So please invite a colleague and if you present them as your guest at the entrance of the room, we give her or him a free drink ticket  with compliments of the Dutch Scholars Societies combined.

All Dutch colleagues are welcome. We have sent out this email to anyone in the SRCD program with a Dutch university affiliation, through the VNOP newsletter engine*. If you are not attending or just not interested, please opt out below. If you are enthusiastic, please leave a reply on the VNOP blog (top right text balloon symbol) and indicate that you are planning to attend (perhaps we need more free tickets). Unlike last time in 2015 you don’t necessarily need to be a member of ISED, VNOP or CAS because it was too much administrative hassle to keep track of it. Feel free to pass this invitation on any Dutch colleague we might have missed.

* Just for convenience and because of temporary technical problems with the ISED newsletter we used the mailer from VNOP. If you speak a few words Dutch we assume you are a Dutch Scholar (which includes Leuven)
