The Uncertainty Laboratory at UCLA (PI: Craig R. Fox) is seeking applications for an NIH-funded postdoctoral research fellowship, for up to 4 years. The laboratory investigates judgment and decision making under uncertainty, choice architecture, and applications of behavioral research to health and public policy. We use a variety of empirical methods including surveys, laboratory and field experiments, and analysis of archival data, among others.
The Uncertainty Lab postdoc will primarily entail working with Dr. Fox on collaborative research of mutual interest within the domains of decision under uncertainty and choice architecture. Some of this work will focus on nudging healthy behaviors, in collaboration with the Roybal Center for Behavioral Interventions in Aging at USC (https://www.roybalniaresearchcenters.org/usc). The postdoc will also have opportunities for independent research and/or work with other members of the Behavioral Decision Making research community at UCLA.
Successful applicants will have broad interests in behavioral decision research and its application to the health domain, strong experimental and statistical training, and a track record of completing outstanding behavioral research. A Ph.D. in psychology, behavioral economics, organizational behavior, marketing, or a related behavioral discipline must be completed prior to starting this position. Start date is flexible, from July 1 to October 1, 2020.
We will begin review of candidates for the Uncertainty Lab postdoc on February 3, 2020 and continue accepting applications until the position is filled. Applications should include a curriculum vitae, statement of purpose outlining your research interests and goals, at least two letters of reference, and a representative manuscript. Please e-mail application materials to firstname.lastname@example.org.
