Possible core responsibilities: You will participate in research projects, working under the supervision and guidance of senior researchers. Sample tasks include:

  • Physiological data analysis (processing data, e.g., visual inspection and manual correction of physiological signals, data reduction by running macros)
  • Behavioural data analysis (e.g., coding behaviours based on video recordings)
  • Assisting in lab work, including lab equipment maintenance, participant recruitment, and scheduling.
  • Collecting data from participants
  • Working on review papers and meta-analyses related to gaming (literature searches)
  • Depending on talent and interest, the assistant can contribute to other parts of research (writing, setting-up equipment, writing code for data analysis, etc.)

Requirements: We are looking for someone passionate about gaming psychology and experimental psychology to join and contribute to our team. An ideal candidate should present the following:
