Fixed term contract for 2 years, 1.0 FTE.
The Behavioural Science Group are recruiting for a ‘WBS Houlden Fellow’ post for the next academic year (2023/24). The position is fixed term for a period of 24 months.
The Behavioural Science Group is a highly multidisciplinary team, drawn from psychology, economics, data science, and beyond. We are bound together by a vision of understanding, predicting, and guiding human behaviour in the widest possible range of contexts. Each of our interests, approaches and styles overlap with those of other members of the group in different ways. This allows us to be highly innovative. We routinely use laboratory experiments, large field experiments, mathematical and economic modelling, and very large datasets to explore and to test and develop theory. We have an active research environment with weekly lab meetings, the university-wide DR@W behavioural science research seminars (which attracts leading international scholars), more informal brown-bag lunchtime presentations and professional development seminars aimed at early career researchers, and strong links to behavioural sciences in the wider University, creating a critical mass in the research environment.
While behavioural science is a core business school activity throughout the world, especially at the very top schools, WBS was unique in having the vision to create a dedicated Behavioural Science Group. The postholder will join this outstanding research environment and will divide their time between three areas of activity: (1) progressing their own research agenda; (2) supporting current WBS research activity and (3) gaining valuable teaching experience. All Houlden Fellows will benefit from the mentoring of a Professorial colleague and wider group, to help them develop their academic careers, over the two-year period. Houlden Fellows have their own budget for research and travel, and use of the state-of-the-art laboratory facilities.
Interview Date: TBC.
We encourage informal enquiries to any member of the group, or to Prof. Neil Stewart (Neil.Stewart@wbs.ac.uk), Head of Behavioural Science.
