You will be part of the Department of Social Psychology  at the University of Amsterdam , interacting with colleagues and participating in program activities (e.g., brownbag meetings, colloquia, workshops, and local conferences), with opportunities to connect with other departments and organizations at the University of Amsterdam (e.g., the Amsterdam Brain & Cognition Centre, the Citizens, Society and Artificial Intelligence group)
