Dear colleagues,

We are looking for a highly motivated and curious PhD candidate who will
work on understanding the cognitive and behavioral aspects of extended
reality (XR) interventions.

Extended Reality (XR) interventions present the potential for new ways of
thinking about health, environmental awareness, disaster preparedness, and
social change related problems. The primary objective of this project is to
investigate how *memory, conscious experience, and sensory awareness* of
users are influenced by the *roles they adopt in XR interventions*.

The PhD candidate will receive guidance from a multidisciplinary
supervisory team with extensive experience in various domains. Dr. Funda
Yildirim will serve as the primary supervisor, Dr. Stéphanie van den Berg
as the promoter, and Dr. Marcello A. Gómez-Maureira as the co-supervisor.

Our offer contains: a fulltime 4-year PhD position with a qualifier in the
first year; excellent mentorship in a stimulating research environment with
excellent facilities; and a personal development program within the Twente
Graduate School.

   - Gross monthly salary of € 2.770 in the first year, increasing each
   year up to € 3.539 in the fourth year;
   - Excellent benefits including a holiday allowance of 8% of the gross
   annual salary, an end-of-year bonus of 8.3%, and a solid pension scheme;
   - 29 holidays per year in case of full-time employment;
   - A training programme as part of the Twente Graduate School where you
   and your supervisors will determine a plan for a suitable education and
   - A green campus with free access to sports facilities and an
   international scientific community;
   - A family-friendly institution that offers parental leave (both paid
   and unpaid);
