4 year Graduate fellowship at Groningen, Netherlands

Graduate fellowship at Gronigen

a 4-year PhD scholarship has become available at the Department of
Psychology at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands. This
scholarship is only applicable to holders of a non-Dutch passport. If
you happen to know someone who qualifies, who is interested in formal
approaches to cognition and who is looking for a PhD position, could
you ask him/her to contact me? (Obviously, if you yourself are
interested, feel free to contact me as well.)

The topic of the project can be either time perception or optimized
learning regimes (i.e., spacing).

Possible methodologies: computational/statistical modeling, EEG, TMS,
eye tracking, and more traditional behavioral experiments.

More information on the scholarship can be found here:

Proposals for projects need to be in as soon as possible.
