Friend of Decision Science News Cade Massey alerts us to the following opportunity of interest:

The Yale School of Management anticipates appointing a Postdoctoral Associate in Organizational Behavior for a period of two years, with a starting date of September 2008. The Postdoctoral Associate will serve as a Behavioral Lab Research Associate of the Behavioral Laboratory in collaboration with the full-time Lab Manager, and will coordinate several ongoing research projects. The remainder of the Associates time will be dedicated to collaboration with faculty on new and ongoing programs of research and conducting independent research in the Associates area of interest. The position will not require any teaching although opportunities exist for those interested. Salary will be competitive, Yale Benefits are included, and there is the possibility of a research allowance.

We have a growing community of researchers who explore basic and applied problems based in psychology, sociology and economics. We will select an applicant who plans to work collaboratively on research with one or more of the faculty members in the organizational behavior program (James Baron, Heidi Brooks, Daylian Cain, Erica Dawson, Joel Podolny, Cade Massey, Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, Victor Vroom, and Amy Wrzesniewski). There may also be opportunities to collaborate with faculty whose work is related to research in these areas. The Yale SOM Web page (http://www.mba.yale.edu/faculty/index.asp) provides some detail about faculty research interests.

This position is open to candidates who have recently earned their PhD degree, or who are expecting their PhD in 2008, in any area of psychology or organizational behavior. Experience with methods of experimentation at the social psychological level of analysis is necessary. In particular, experience in conducting computer, web-based, and interpersonal interaction-based experiments is a plus.
