Available positions

Postdoctoral Fellow

We invite applications for a one-year postdoctoral position working with Derek Koehler in the Department of Psychology at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.  There is some flexibility but ideally the position would begin by September 1, 2020.  Potential avenues of exploration include applying the concepts of decision making under uncertainty/belief revision in response to expert opinion to vaccines and the COVID-19 pandemic, in partnership with government and Canadian public health organizations.  The position is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada through the Behaviourally Informed Organizations Partnership housed in the BEAR research centre at the University of Toronto.

The applicant should have experience as a behavioural science researcher and competence in project management as well as rigorous methodological and statistical skills.   Previous research in the area of health would also be an asset.  Duties would span the full range from development of research ideas to study execution and report writing.  The postdoc would likely end up working as part of a larger team but would be expected to take a leadership position in managing and executing the project.

Interested applicants should send a cover letter summarizing research interests, CV, representative publications, and contact information for at least two references directly to Derek Koehler at dkoehler@uwaterloo.ca. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
