Post-doc at Center for Human Potential and Public Policy, Harris School of Public Policy

Dear CFP Consortium Members: One of our members, the Center for Human Potential and Public Policy at the University of Chicago, is seeking a post-doctoral scholar. See below for details. Best, Sarah, Consortium Coordinator

The Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago seeks to hire a post-doctoral scholar at the Behavioral Insights and Parenting Lab under the sponsorship of Professors Ariel Kalil and Susan Mayer. The BIP Lab is made up of faculty, post-docs and graduate students at Chicago Harris, joined by colleagues and students from around the University of Chicago and other institutions who are interested in understanding how insights from behavioral science can be used to influence family decision making.  Applicants should hold a Ph.D. degree in social psychology, cognitive science, behavioral science, or related fields.

The BIP Lab is primarily a research lab with several active funded research projects. At any one time the lab has up to 30 students working on various projects. The Lab also sponsors a weekly workshop for Ph.D. students and post-doctoral scholars interested in the topics relevant to the Lab's mission. The BIP Lab is housed within the Center for Human Potential and Public Policy that also sponsors a weekly workshop and other activities.  The postdoctoral scholar would be an active participant in these workshops and the other activities of the BIP Lab and CHPPP.  The scholar would be expected to collaborate on research projects at the Lab but would also have protected time to work on his or her own individual research.

The basic terms of the appointment are as follows:
•    Salary: $70,000
•    Research account: $5,000
•    Teaching: 2 quarter-length courses in negotiations, executive decision making, or related topics
•    Term length: one year, renewable for a second conditional on research progress, eligibility, and funding availability.
