Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Psy­cho­logy, Insti­tute of Gene­ral Psy­cho­logy, Bio­psy­cho­logy and Methods of Psy­cho­logy, Chair of Gene­ral Psy­cho­logy

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

(Sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­ne­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
The pro­ject posi­tion is offe­red in the DFG third-party fun­ded pro­ject "The Influ­ence of Inhi­bi­tion Strength on Self-Con­trol: When, When Not and How?” star­ting as soon as pos­si­ble, limi­ted for 2 years with 65% of the regu­lar wee­kly working hours. The period of employ­ment is gover­ned by § 2 (2) Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver­trags­ge­setz - WissZeitVG).
The DFG pro­ject aims at inves­ti­ga­ting an emer­ging con­cep­tual ana­ly­sis of beha­vio­ral restraint. Through a focus on restraint inten­sity-rela­ted car­dio­vascu­lar respon­ses, this ana­ly­sis aims to reim­a­gine fati­gue’s influ­ence on restraint per­for­mance as multi-face­ted ins­tead of the tra­di­tio­nal view of fati­gue having a direct effect on restraint per­for­mance. The pro­ject will examine the effects that per­cep­tion of fati­gue, exter­nal incen­ti­ves and trai­ning have on the rela­ti­ons­hip bet­ween fati­gue and restraint inten­sity-rela­ted car­dio­vascu­lar response. The aim of the pro­ject is to repli­cate and extend the initial sup­port found for the con­cep­tual ana­ly­sis.
