Identification of molecular links between brain and language — PhD Position at the Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen, the Netherlands, (4-year fully-funded PhD position, starting salary €2,125 per month).
Language makes us human and different from all other species and our abilities to master language are heritable and interlinked with brain structure and function. This PhD project aims to investigate the genetic relationships between language and communication and their neural counterparts. This will include a wide range of language, speech and communication measures as assessed in population-based cohorts as well as sub-cortical structures and other neuroimaging data as investigated in large consortia.

Special issue on providing causal explanations in personality research
BGA-ers might wish to submit proposals to a special issue that welcomes concrete novel proposals that can advance causal interpretations in the context of current personality research (or make a well-argued case for why causal interpretations are currently impossible now or forever). Proposals of research designs, statistical models, to conceptual models are acceptable. Empirical examples are important. While these may be published, the ideas ought currently be unpublished.
