Biography:

Dr. Timothea Toulopoulou was awarded the Chair of the Psychology Department at Bilkent University in September 2015. She was previously appointed as Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Hong Kong in 2011, where she also served as the Director of Biopsychosocial and Developmental Research, and the head of the Psychosis lab. Prior to that she was a Lecturer at King’s College London, University of London, where she still retains a visiting position.

Dr. Toulopoulou earned her Ph.D., under the supervision of Prof Sir Robin Murray and Prof Robin Morris, at the University of London in 2001.¬† She completed most of her postgraduate training, and her early working career at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London, UK. In 2003 she was awarded a Canon Foundation in Europe Research Fellowship that allowed her to visit Hamamatsu Medical School, Japan. In 2005 she received a two-year Young Investigator Award from the National Alliance of Research on Schizophrenia and Affective Disorders, USA (now Brain and Behavior Research Foundation), that she completed at Harvard Medical School, USA, and in 2011 she was awarded a one-year fellowship from the Chinese Academy of Sciences that she completed at the Institute of Psychology, Beijing, China. Dr. Toulopoulou was the lead scientist for the Genes and Cognition work package of the European Community’s 6th Framework Program, and is a partner in the European Community’s 7th Framework Program. She held grants or subcontracts from the Economic and Social Research Council (UK), Research Grants Council (HK), The University of Hong Kong and the National Institutes of Health (USA). She reviews regularly for numerous journals including JAMA Psychiatry and Brain. She is a consulting editor for ‘Clinical Psychological Science’ and is on the Editorial boards of several journals including the World Journal of Psychiatry. She also serves as a fellowship and grant reviewer for the Wellcome Trust, UK, and the Medical Research Council (MRC), UK among others. Finally, she was a panel member for the European Research Council‚Äôs (ERC) Advanced research grants and is a Deputy Panel Chair for ERC‚Äôs Consolidator research grants.

Research:

The work of her lab focuses on understanding the cognitive, neurobiological, and genetic mechanisms that influence an individual’s susceptibility to develop schizophrenia. At Bilkent she focuses on brain development (f-MRI, DTI, cognitive) in adolescence, and early adulthood, and how genes and environment can alter the developmental trajectory.

Dr. Toulopoulou is pleased to consider applications from talented prospective PhD students and postdocs.
