Postdoc with Social Cognition and Decision Sciences Research Group, University of Tübingen

Application deadline: November 15, 2018
Starting date negotiable, preferably March 1 2019

The Psychology Department at the University of Tübingen offers a POSITION AS POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER (E13 TV-L, 100%). The position is part of the research group “Social Cognition and Decision Sciences” headed by Prof. Dr. Mandy Hütter. Our research is located at the intersection of social and cognitive psychology as well as judgment and decision making. The main research topics include attitude acquisition and attitude measurement, automaticity in learning and judgment, and the wisdom of crowds in general and advice taking and giving in particular. These topics share a substantive focus on context effects and statistical modelling as a methodological approach.

 

The postdoc position is advertised for a period of two years. The starting date is negotiable (preferably March 1 2019). The University of Tübingen offers excellent research facilities. Budget for research-related costs and conference travel is provided. The main assignment of the postdoc is to conduct and publish research related to the topics of the research group and to co-supervise the work of PhD students. The declared goal of this position is for the postdoctoral researcher to build up an independent research profile. The position is free from teaching obligations.

 

The position is open to candidates who have a PhD in (social, learning, behavioral, or cognitive) psychology. Candidates should have a strong background in social cognition or decision sciences and should have published this work (as first author) in pertinent international journals. Experience with the programming of experimental software is a requirement. Candidates should be fluent in English (spoken and written). The ability to speak German is helpful but not necessary.

 

Inquiries about the position can be directed at Mandy Hütter (mandy.huetter@uni-tuebingen.de). Applicants should submit a CV, the usual certificates, two letters of recommendation, and a cover letter describing their research interests as well as their motivation to apply for this specific position (in a single PDF file) to mandy.huetter@uni-tuebingen.de under the keyword “SCDS.”

 

The University seeks to raise the number of women in research and teaching and therefore urges qualified female academics to apply for these positions. Equally qualified applicants with disabilities will be given preference.

Two Post-Doctoral Fellow Openings, Behavioral Science of Misinformation, MIT/Regina

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, but applications submitted by Jan 1 2019 will receive priority.

 

David Rand and Gordon Pennycook are jointly seeking 2 postdoctoral researchers to begin Fall 2019 (or sooner), for two years (with the possibility of extending depending on funding). One researcher will be based in David Rand's Human Cooperation Lab at MIT Sloan and one researcher will be based in Gordon Pennycook's Behavioral Science Lab at the Hill/Levene Schools of Business (University of Regina), with substantial intellectual integration across the two sites. Fellows will design and run research studies, analyze data, prepare publications, and be a core member of the collective intellectual community spanning the two labs. We are particularly seeking candidates who are interested in exploring why people believe and share mis/disinformation, including "fake news", misleading hyper-partisan content, and conspiracy theories; and in developing interventions to combat belief in, and spreading of, such content. Some samples of our recent work in this domain are available here.

Potential assets for applicants include: Experience with lab/online experiments, experience with social media data collection/experimentation, computational skills (e.g., machine learning, web programing, agent based simulations), and knowledge of fields such as judgment and decision-making, social psychology, marketing, political science, and/or communications. That being said, we do not have a set vision of the skill sets we are looking to add to our groups, so we would encourage anyone interested in the topic of misinformation to apply, regardless of background!

Ideal candidates would be creative, independent, articulate, and deeply engaged in questions related to human decision-making (or associated topics). Funds for conducting experiments will be available to the fellow, as well as the many opportunities for outside collaboration. Our joint lab culture aims to advance our scientific understanding by fostering open discussion and debate, and rewarding originality and vision.
 
Individuals with a Ph.D., or those expecting to complete their Ph.D. in Spring 2019, are encouraged to apply. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, but applications submitted by Jan 1 2019 will receive priority. If you are interested, please apply (at any point) – no need to email inquiring as to whether the position is still available!
 
Please send CV, statement of interest (two pages max), 2 reprints/preprints, and arrange to have at least 2 reference emails sent, to: Antonio Arechar <aa.arechar@gmail.com>. Please indicate your willingness to be considered for one or both positions.
