The Dynamic Decision Making Laboratory (DDMLab) (www.cmu.edu/ddmlab) in the department of Social and Decision Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) invites applications for two Postdoctoral fellowship positions in cognitive psychology and decision making.

Research projects require experience planning and conducting laboratory studies with complex, dynamic simulations. The DDMLab offers training and research opportunities involving several aspects of dynamic decision making: learning and transfer, cognitive support and cognitive modeling among others. Fellows will be involved in one of two types of projects. One is a research project sponsored by the National Science Foundation on Hypothesis Generation and Feedback in the context of medical diagnosis. Another one is a research project sponsored by the Office of Naval Research on Automaticity development in complex tasks. The ideal candidates will have a Ph.D. in Psychology, Cognitive Science, Decision Science or Human Factors.

They expect candidates to have strong research interests in all facets of dynamic decision making research: conducting cognitive task analysis of real world situations, helping in the design of computer simulations that mimic the real world, conducting laboratory studies using these simulations, analyzing data and writing research reports. Appointment will pay highly competitive rates based on background and experience. The position is scheduled to start immediately and extend for one or up to two years. Applicants should send curriculum vitae, statement of research skills and interests, relevant journal articles, and contact information for three references. Electronic applications are encouraged. Please send electronic documents (Word, Pdf) to: coty_at_cmu.edu or forward paper documents to:
