For colleagues that obtained their PhD between 2 and 12 years ago, and have a good publishing record, there are opportunities of working at our lab with a Radboud Excellence Fellowship (click here). Fellows can come for 1 to 2 years, and we can offer them excellent opportunities for carrying out research, and for investigating research questions of their interest within the large data set of our longitudinal Bibo project. Contact us for more information on the possibilities (yearly deadlines: 1 May and 1 November).
Our lab offers PhD and postdoc opportunities, as well as undergraduate opportunities to gain research experience. Also, prospective Master and PhD students with external funding are invited to contact us. For those looking for (additional) funding, there are some opportunities to obtain funding in The Netherlands (see: Dutch grant finder) and from the Radboud University Nijmegen (see: www.ru.nl/masters/ and www.ru.nl/phd/).
We select candidates based on their motivation, CV, English language capacities, and writing skills.
“I did my research internship in DPB lab as part of my Masters requirement. Their openness and acceptance of everyone being equal is what allowed me to grow and be more outspoken. During my time there, I was given opportunities to be involved in department and team meetings, events and also being able to plan and contribute ideas. The unique combination and scope of research in this department also provided a learning platform towards the diversity of influences towards early development. It is with my pleasure that I recommend this research team.”
“I was an exchange student from Brazil at Radboud University, as a biologist I was always fascinated about the brain and people’s mind. I decided to take the Psychobiology of Behavior course with Professor Carolina de Weerth and I found myself in love with psychobiology. I spent about 4 months in an internship at the DPBLab and it was the best part of my exchange year, I could meet a lot of nice people that are always willing to teach you new things, apply the knowledge that I got during the classes and improve my research skills. I highly recomend working with this team.”
“I worked as a research assistant in the Developmental Psychobiology lab for three months throughout the summer of 2015. My main duty was to assist PhD student Christine Hechler in processes such as recruitment, laboratory visits, data collection, literature reading and data analysis. It was an extremely beneficial and rewarding experience that I would highly recommend to any student considering a career in research.”
“As a PhD student from Italy, I worked in the DPB Lab. It was exciting how this research group combines both the biological and psychological approach within their research. I appreciated the atmosphere in the lab. The people were enthusiastic and kind. I felt welcomed and, even from the first day on, I was part of the team. During my visit, I have participated in the weekly Lab-meetings, I have shared my research ideas and experiences with fellow PhD students, and I have learned a lot about different psychobiology topics, such as prenatal stress, hormones and microbiota. It was an inspiring time and, in the future, I wish to return to the DPB Lab.”
