UNIVERSITY: Ghent University DEPARTMENT: RE-CONNECT Interuniversity Research Consortium
The RE-CONNECT Interuniversity Research Consortium is currently hiring four fully funded 4-year PhD candidates on the topic of emotional connectedness. The 4 PhD student positions that are currently open are the following:
1) Position 1: Statistical methods for capturing Emotional Connectedness (position at KU Leuven; principal advisor: Eva Ceulemans) The aim of this PhD project is to develop, evaluate and apply new time series models for studying whether and how emotional connectedness in close relationships fluctuates across time in daily life and in the lab. At the same time, attention will be paid to designing future longitudinal studies (e.g., their sampling scheme) such that the models can be estimated optimally. Finally, we will develop open source software and apps (building on for instance R) to allow other researchers to use the new sample size calculation methods and time series models. Further information about this position can be obtained from Eva Ceulemans.
2) Position 2: Emotional Connectedness in couples (position at UGhent; principal advisor: Lesley Verhofstadt) This PhD project will focus on the dynamics of emotional connectedness in intimate relationships. First, the idea will be tested that the dynamics of emotional connectedness in couples can be understood from relationship goals that are being pursued (e.g., independence vs. interdependence). Second, the predictive validity of different types of emotional connectedness dynamics for individual and relational well-being will be examined. A combination of ESM and observational lab methods will be used. Further information about this position can be obtained from Lesley Verhofstadt.
3) Position 3: Cultural differences in emotional connectedness (position at KULeuven; principal advisor: Batja Mesquita) The focus of this PhD-project will be on establishing and understanding cultural differences in the dynamics of emotional connectedness. We expect that these dynamics can be understood from cultural differences in relationship goals; and that the dynamics associated with the highest wellbeing are different for different cultures. In this project we will closely collaborate with researchers at the UGhent and the VUB to study couples and leader-follower dyads respectively. The cultural comparison will involve Belgium and Japan for the couples, and Belgium and China for the leader-follower research. For this position, proven interest in and experience with different cultures, or with these cultures in particular, is an advantage. Further information about this position can be obtained from Batja Mesquita.
4) Position 4: Emotional connectedness in mental health (position at KULeuven; principal advisor: Peter Kuppens) In this Phd project, we aim to study the role of interpersonal emotional processes and connectedness in the etiology, maintenance, and recovery of mood disorder. While most existing psychopathology research focuses on intrapersonal factors and mechanisms, in this Re-Connect project we strive to uncover how mood disorder and its symptoms is at least in part a function of the way emotions are exchanged and shared or not shared between people. As such, we aim to elucidate how personal well-being and symptoms of individuals suffering from mood disorder develop and manifest in close relationships. The Phd research involves the re-coding and -analyses of existing data and the collection of new (lab and daily life) data both in healthy and mood disorder diagnosed individuals and their significant others. Further information about this position can be obtained from Peter Kuppens.
