Y tu CMU también …

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 Postdoctoral fellowship positions in social sciences and decision making.

Research projects require experience planning and conducting laboratory studies with dynamic simulations and decision making games. Fellows will be involved in a research project aiming at the study of cultural, political identities, and other socio-cognitive variables, and the way they influence conflict and its resolution, using a combination of social science and computational modeling methods. The ideal candidates will have a Ph.D. in Psychology, Decision Science or Human Factors, and should have broad research interests in all facets of dynamic decision making research.

Appointment will pay competitive rates based on background and experience. The position is scheduled to start September 1, 2009 and extend for one or up to two years.
