Early Career Researcher Prize for Professor Markus Janczyk

Professor Markus Janczyk has received this year’s science prize for early career researchers from the Wilhelm Wundt Society. The prize is awarded for outstanding achievements in foundation research within the field of psychology.

Professor Markus Janczyk has been researching and teaching at the newly established Department of Psychology within the Faculty of Human and Health Sciences, University of Bremen, since April 2019. There he is head of the Research Methods and Cognitive Psychology working group. His work focusses on action control and multitasking, memory language comprehension, as well as cognitive modelling and applied statistics.

An external jury comprised of representatives from the fields of general psychology, biopsychology, developmental psychology, psychological methodology, and social psychology have attested that since his PhD, Professor Janczyk has proven himself to be one of the most productive and innovative international early-career researchers. “Innovative bridge building between cognitive-psychological sub disciplines is the trademark of his research,” it is stated in the assessment. “The foundation-oriented research interests of Mr. Janczyk are not only focused on one area – as can often be observed – but are widely spread.”

The research fields of human action control and psychomotor must be named. In memory psychology, he deals with the issues of how elements in our working memory are chosen and what happens with them when they are no longer available for cognitive processing. He is currently focused on the cognitive processing of presuppositions in the field of linguistic psychology – thus implicit contents that are assumed to be known by the recipient. Additionally, his work has included contributions to applied statistics and cognitive modelling. “As an author and co-author, he has published an impressive number of original, peer-to-peer reviewed works in all of these fields, which include numerous publications in the most renowned journals of our discipline,” stated the jury.

The Wilhelm Wundt Society (Wilhelm-Wundt-Gesellschaft) is a scientific association with the aim of promoting and developing psychological foundation research with its work. The namesake, Wilhelm Wundt, passed away 100 years ago. He is seen as the founder of psychology as an individual scientific discipline.

It is intended that the price be awarded at the upcoming German Psychological Society conference.
