The Institute of Psychobiology was founded in 2008 as follow-up structure of the former Graduate School of Psychobiology. In different research divisions, psychologist, biologists, physicians and researchers of related subjects investigate biological correlates of human behavior. Using a multidiscplinary approach, the common research theme is the psychobiological investigation of stress.
Head of the Institute of Psychobiology: Prof. Dr. Hartmut Schächinger
The major duty of the institut is the training of Phd-students (Dr. rer. nat.). Doctoral students are usually funded by stipends, Phd-Projects of external students are generally possible. The institute also participates in teaching in the Master of Psychology at the University of Trier (for further details see webpages of departments).
