The Center for Research on Environmental Decisions (CRED) at Columbia University is seeking an outstanding researcher for a one-year post-doctoral position to start in the Fall of 2005, renewable for a second year. The post-doc will carry out research and coordinate lab activities.

CRED is directed by Professors Elke Weber, David Krantz, Roberta Miller, and Kenny Broad and includes researchers from psychology, management, economics, engineering, climate science, anthropology, and history. CRED studies individual and group decision making under climate uncertainty and, more broadly, decision making in the face of environmental risk. While research is conducted both in the lab and in various countries around the world, the post-doc will be responsible for lab projects. For more information please visit www.cred.columbia.edu.

Qualifications: Candidates must have a Ph.D. in a discipline relevant to decision making. May 2005 graduates will be considered for the position. Applicants should be interested in applied research that is ultimately aimed at improving stakeholders’ decision making. Being highly organized is a must; being comfortable running a Linux Web server and having other excellent computer skills would be a definite advantage.

To apply, please send a CV, two letters of recommendation, one writing sample, and a cover letter describing your research interests and expertise carrying out experimental research. Review of applications will begin mid-April and continue until the position is filled.

Applications should be sent to:
