Psychometrics

项目介绍

Job description
The employment is primarily dedicated towards carrying out psychometric research, with the aim to write several academic articles that are publishable in high-impact peer-reviewed journals and to present their work at relevant international conferences. The position and the environment in which the candidate will be embedded provide an optimal starting point for a possible academic career. The candidate will follow a customized track of graduate courses as part of the IOPS program which will further develop the candidate’s research skills and background knowledge. The position also involves contributing to teaching.
 

Requirements
The candidate should ideally have sound knowledge of psychometrics and statistics, programming skills and affinity with research methods and techniques. Furthermore, the candidate should have (nearly) completed a (Research) Master’s degree with excellent academic results in methodology, psychometrics, statistics, quantitative psychology, educational measurement, or a related field. 

Project
The PhD project will be focused on the development and use of advanced psychometric tools for studying test-taking behavior and response processes. With the advance of computerized testing, a wide range of process data (for example, response time data) are becoming available that provide a unique opportunity to gain further insight into the exact processes that led respondents to provide the answers that they have given. For example, these process data can provide insight into how motivated a respondent was, what response strategy they employed, and to what extent they were operating under time pressure. Studying and modeling these phenomena is important in many applications of psychological and educational tests. It is especially relevant in international large-scale assessment, where cultural differences between countries may result in important differences in how respondents take the test, confounding measurement and country comparisons. The PhD candidate for this project will contribute both to the development of new psychometric models and methods that improve the toolset for capturing relevant differences in test-taking behavior, as well as contributing the correct application of these psychometric tools in testing practice. 
 
Terms of employment
Tilburg University is among the top Dutch employers and has an excellent policy concerning terms of employment. The collective employment terms and conditions for Dutch universities will apply. Initially the appointment will be on a temporary basis for the period of 1 year. After a positive first year evaluation the contract will be prolonged for 3 more years. 
The salary for the position of PhD-candidate on a full-time basis ranges between € 2395,- and € 3061,- gross per month (not included are various allowances).
