Short description: 

We invite applications for a PhD position (4 years) within an Ambizione project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) entitled “Influence of lighting on mental effort and on motivational deficit caused by fatigue” which will be led by Dr. Ruta Lasauskaite at the Centre for Chronobiology (head Prof. Christian Cajochen).


The research project is concerned with non-visual effects of light on humans and more specifically on the impact on motivation and psychophysiological correlates of mental effort. Experimental lab studies using cardiovascular, pupillary, and EEG measures will be run to test the effects of light during performance of cognitive tasks under fatigue.
