The Research Training Group (RTG) 2271 “Expectation Maintenance vs. Change in 
the Context of Expectation Violations: Connecting Different Approaches” is 
funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, 
DFG). The overarching goal of this RTG is to investigate why and when 
organisms (humans, animals) change or maintain generalized expectations in the 
face of disconfirming evidence.

Fourteen doctoral students will be funded in each cohort (3 years per cohort). 
Vacant positions are advertised here:


The dissertation projects in this RTG cover a range of topics related to 
expectation maintenance vs. expectation change in various contexts, including
mathematical psychology, cognitive modeling, clinical psychology, educational 
psychology, social psychology, or biological psychology.

Thirteen researchers (“Principal Investigators”) from the Department of 
Psychology at Philipps University Marburg are involved in the RTG. You can find 
more information about these researchers, the research program and the 
qualification program on the above website.
