Postdoctoral Position at the CPT

Description of the research project: We propose an investigation into the temporal nature of the emotions. Every waking moment is coloured by positive or negative feelings of varying intensities. Emotions can be about the past or future, unfold over time (anger gradually dissipating) and modify our experience of time itself. These connections between time and the emotions has not received significant attention. The aim of this project is develop a comprehensive account of the relation between emotions and temporality.
