Prof.dr. Payal Arora
Payal Arora is appointed as Full Professor at ESPhil. The Chair will be embedded at the intersection of the philosophy of media and the philosophy of technology. It is closely related to one of the key research themes of ESPhil, namely “the constitution of subjectivity” which explores how the contemporary economic and ecological crises, together with the increasing technological complexity of our life-world, necessitate a redefinition of our relationship with nature and ourselves.
Prof. dr. Pauline Jansen
Prof.dr. Pauline Jansen is benoemd tot hoogleraar Ontwikkelings-psychopathologie. Jansen richt zich in haar leerstoel op het identificeren van risicofactoren en voorspellers van psychische problemen bij jongeren, zoals (symptomen van) ADHD, autisme, depressie en eetstoornissen. Hiervoor maakt ze gebruik van het langlopende Generation R onderzoek in Rotterdam, alsook van internationale cohorten. Kennis over voorspellers is van groot belang om tijdige herkenning, preventie en behandeling van problemen in een vroeg stadium mogelijk te maken. We weten namelijk dat een tijdige behandeling cruciaal is om te voorkomen dat psychische problemen een chronisch of recidiverend beloop aannemen.
Prof.dr. Claartje ter Hoeven
Prof.dr. Claartje ter Hoeven has been appointed as professor of Organisational Dynamics in the Digital Society. Ter Hoeven explores how digital technologies are able to help organise, manage and shape the way we work. Having to work with digital technologies such as robots can influence the status of employees or even the structure of their job. The arrival of a robot can provide employees with more interesting tasks, but on the other hand, the robot may literally and/or figuratively get in their way. Ter Hoeven works together with colleagues from the Psychology, Sociology and Public Administration departments. In collaboration with the same colleagues, she is also setting up a new multidisciplinary master's program with the same name: Organisational Dynamics in the Digital Society.
