Fully funded PhD student position: Developmental psychopathology (autism research).

Applications are welcome for a 4-year PhD position at Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden. Uppsala university is highly ranked internationally, and is the oldest university in the Nordic countries. Uppsala is located just 30 minutes north of Stockholm and has a population of 200,000 (40,000 students).

Duties/Project description: The PhD student position is embedded in the SAPIENS consortium, a European Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network, in which 15 PhD students investigate how the dynamics of early social interactions support the development of the social brain. SAPIENS combines advances in ecological, mobile real-time brain and behaviour measurement, data modeling and artificial intelligence to study early social development and to train a new generation of researchers in these ground-breaking approaches.  The other nodes in the network are well-reputed research institutes located in the UK, the Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, and Italy.

The PhD student will be working at the Uppsala Child and Babylab at the Department of Psychology, with Dr Terje Falck-Ytter as the main supervisor. The Uppsala Child and Babylab is a highly ranked infant research laboratory devoted to the study of sensory-motor, cognitive, and social development in both typically and atypically developing infants. We employ novel research methods and make use of both experimental and longitudinal designs to examine group-level development and individual differences. While based at Uppsala University, several research visits are planned to collaborators at other research sites within the SAPIENS network.
