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.
