Postdoctoral researcher in Social & Social-Cognitive Development

Are you driven to discover how the development of psychosocial problems in children can be prevented or treated? Do you want to participate in one of the leading research universities in Europe? Effective immediately, we are seeking a Postdoctoral researcher in Social & Social-Cognitive Development (1,0 FTE).

Project description

Our ongoing longitudinal Social Development Project is tracing early social development with a unique combination of multi-informant, social-cognitive, and observational assessments. Having started in the project as babies, participants now reach important social milestones in early adolescence. We now aim to study their present development of a.o. self-esteem, identity, social relations, and psychopathology, and their associations with earlier social-cognitive development.

For this project, we are seeking a new colleague to continue and extend the project, with expertise in social (-cognitive) and longitudinal-experimental research, and affinity with the clinical field.
