The successful applicant will be appointed through SPIA, with a formal affiliation to the Psychology Department. The position is offered for one year, with the possibility of renewal, contingent upon funding and satisfactory performance. In addition to carrying out independent research, the appointee often collaborates with one or more faculty members. Beyond research, the appointee will be expected to assist in the teaching of the "psychology and policy" course, including the evaluation of written work by masters' students and leadership of a discussion section for the class. Appointees may also lead discussion sections for an undergraduate course given by the Psychology Department or the School of Public and International Affairs. Any teaching is contingent on sufficient enrollments and must be approved by the Dean of the Faculty. When teaching, the appointee will hold the additional title of Lecturer. A PhD degree in Psychology or related disciplines with behavioral and policy relevance is required. A background in behavioral decision research or social psychological research is a plus. Applicants must apply online at and submit a cover letter, C.V., one or at most two research papers, and two reference letters. This position is subject to the University's background check policy. Review of applications will begin immediately and will proceed on an ongoing basis until the position is filled. The position will start as soon as September 1, 2023.
