PhD position ‘internet interventions on overeating’ at the University of Salzburg, Austria

How can we change unhealthy habits around snacking and overeating?

This is the central research questions in our group. We approach these questions with a mix of experimental and
ambulatory methods in populations ranging from healthy to eating- and weight-disordered groups. We plan to
develop interventions combining goal setting/planning with cognitive bias modification trainings. We depart from
our studies using ecological momentary assessment of affect and eating and aim for targeted and individualized
intervention approaches.

We use an excellent research infrastructure at the Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience and the Department of
Psychology and maintain a large interdisciplinary scientific network. Being a well-connected, dynamic workgroup,
we hope to provide a vibrant and motivating scientific environment as well as good work-life balance. Salzburg is
located at the rim of the Alps and offers a rich cultural life as well as plenty of outdoors recreational opportunities.

We now offer a 4-year PhD position funded by the Austrian Research Fund. Candidates can have a background
in Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, Public Health or related medical/technical disciplines. Of advantage will
be research skills in either laboratory- or web based reaction-time measures or studies applying internet based
treatments or ecological momentary assessment. Of further advantage are statistical modelling skills, ideally
including linear mixed effects modelling in R.

To apply, please send a motivation letter, CV, publication list, name of 1-2 reference persons,
to jens.blechert@sbg.ac.at (in English). Please use the job title in the subject line. Application deadline is
December 31st 2021.
