POSICIÓN POST-DOCTORAL en la UCL (proyecto dirigido por Prof. David Shanks)

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position to contribute to a project led by Prof David Shanks at UCL on understanding the consequences of retrieval practice on long-term learning and memory.

uclpals_experimental_psychology_image

This project is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and in collaboration with Dr Chunliang Yang (Beijing Normal University), will aim specifically to investigate the conditions in which tests and quizzes enhance learning and retention of new information prospectively. The research will increase knowledge of the boundary conditions of the forward testing effect and assess whether retrieval can be employed as a practical method for consolidating learning and memory inside and outside the classroom.

UCL hosts one of the foremost experimental cognitive psychology research communities in the world, and the Experimental Psychology Research Department is centrally placed within the university, with state-of-the-art facilities for conducting behavioural research and close connections to UCL’s cognitive neuroscience, language, and other related research units.

This post in funded for 3 years in the first instance.

Key Requirements

The successful candidate is expected to have a PhD in psychology, cognitive science or a related area as well as extensive experience of research in human learning and memory. Applicants should demonstrate advanced knowledge in cognitive psychology and have experience in designing, conducting and analysing psychological experiments. He/she should also have excellent data analysis and programming (e.g., MATLAB, R) and writing skills.

II Workshop “Interplay between Parental Care and Sexual Selection”

= = = = = = = = = = = = =

Dear colleagues,

From July 5th to 9th, 2020, we will host the II Workshop “Interplay between Parental Care and Sexual Selection” that will take place at “Hotel Fazenda Fonte Colina Verde”, São Pedro, state of São Paulo, Brazil.

screenshot-workshop-pcss2.weebly.com-2019.11.27-12_09_44

The main goal of the event will be to provide a relaxed environment where researchers with diverse backgrounds, at different career stages and using different approaches (from theoretical models to empirical studies on a wide variety of taxa) can exchange ideas, discuss recent developments in the field, and propose directions for future projects. As plenary speakers, we invited prominent international researchers, responsible for major theoretical and empirical contributions about the theme of the event.

As with the first edition of the event, based in Gothenburg, Sweden, no registration fee will be charged from participants. Thus, we expect to make the event as affordable as possible and to promote a greater participation of graduate students. Participants will pay only for accommodation, which includes breakfast and two daily meals. Additionally, due to the ease of access, either by land or by air, to the city of São Paulo, the workshop is expected to receive a large number of participants from Latin American countries where behavioral ecology research is well developed.

For more information about the event, see the website www.workshop-pcss2.weebly.com or send an email to one of the organizers.

III Congreso Internacional de Psicobiología

III Congreso Internacional de Psicobiología
Granada, España
29 al 31 de Mayo de 2019

———————————————————-

Queridos colegas y amigos,

En nombre la Sociedad Española de Psicobiología nos complace anunciar el III Congreso Internacional de Psicobiología que tendrá lugar en Granada del 29 al 31 de Mayo como continuación de los congresos de Oviedo en 2015 y Ávila en 2017.

iii_congreso_psicobio

El Comité Organizador desea que este congreso sea también una oportunidad para compartir los hallazgos más recientes sobre la relación entre el Sistema Nervioso y el Comportamiento en todas sus facetas gracias a las sesiones plenarias, mesas redondas y presentaciones orales previstas. Queremos animar a que los jóvenes investigadores contribuyan y hemos incluido varias iniciativas para ello. Así, el Programa Científico incluirá una sección de “Presentaciones Orales Breves” especialmente dirigida a ellos. Además, el Comité Científico velará para que al menos una ponencia de cada simposio sea presentada por un investigador joven.

El programa científico se completará con un programa sociocultural como solo puede ofrecer una ciudad abierta y acogedora como Granada en la que han convivido diferentes culturas bajo la Alhambra, uno de los monumentos más bellos del mundo.

Estaremos encantados de contar con vuestra participación y contribución enviando presentaciones orales y pósteres a fin de completar un interesante y atractivo programa que refleje los avances en nuestra disciplina y sus perspectivas futuras.

Os esperamos en Granada

Un cordial saludo

Mª Ángeles Zafra Palma

Presidente del Comité Organizador

INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR COMPARATIVE PSYCHOLOGY BIENNIAL MEETING LOS ANGELES, 29-31 OCTOBER, 2018

INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR COMPARATIVE PSYCHOLOGY BIENNIAL MEETING
LOS ANGELES, 29-31 OCTOBER, 2018

The International Society for Comparative Psychology is a scholarly society which has developed a reputation for holding successful, productive, fun, and intimate meetings over the last decades.

ISCP_BIENNIAL MEETING_2018

This meeting is being organized by Professor Aaron Blaisdell on behalf of the Society. We have set the dates at the end of October so that it will be closely followed by the Society for Neuroscience meeting in San Diego which starts on November 2nd, 2018. San Diego is only a 2.5-hours drive (or short commuter flight) south of Los Angeles, and thus both conferences should be accessible, especially for international travelers. We invite researchers from around the world to attend the ISCP meeting in October to share and discuss their research in animal behavior, associative learning, cognition, behavioral neuroscience, and psychopharmacology, biological psychology, evolutionary psychology, comparative psychology, and their applications.
