The ESRC Network for Integrated Behavioural Science: The Science of Consumer Behaviour is looking to fill vacancies for a Research Fellow/ Post Doctoral Researcher. There are 3 posts available - one based at Warwick, one at Nottingham and one at East Anglia.
The roles are designed to fit with our NIBS themes and each post is being advertised separately by the insitution at which the researcher will be based. Anyone wishing to apply for more than one position is welcome to do so, however you will need to complete a separate application with each institution, so please read the details of each post carefully and note the individual closing dates.
University of Nottingham - closing date 26 February
The School of Economics at the University of Nottingham is seeking to fill a two-year Research Associate/Fellow for the ESRC NIBS project which, under the current phase of funding, has a particular focus on developing The Science of Consumer Behaviour. Primary tasks may include: contributing to the development of behavioural theory; developing and conducting laboratory experimental research; contributing to development of field research and/or analysis of field data. You will be encouraged to contribute at all stages of research (inception, design, analysis and dissemination). Successful candidates will also contribute to organisation of Network events. Candidates are expected to have a PhD (or be demonstrably close to completing and submitting) in economics, econometrics, psychology or a cognate discipline. The post is available from 1 September 2018 for a period of two years. An earlier or later starting date may be possible, by agreement. For further details including a role profile and information on how to apply visit Nottingham University Jobs.
University of East Anglia - closing date 5 February
The School of Economics at the University of East Anglia (UEA) is seeking to fill a three-year postdoctoral senior research associateship on an ESRC project ‘The Network for Integrated Behavioural Science: The Science of Consumer Behaviour (NIBS)’. This project aims to develop realistic models of consumer behaviour and decision processes and to examine the implications of behavioural science for the operation and regulation of firms and markets. Working with Profs Amelia Fletcher, Bruce Lyons, Robert Sugden and Theodore Turocy, the post holder will use theoretical modelling and behavioural economic experiments to investigate interactions between ‘behavioural’ consumers, profit-seeking firms, and regulators. NIBS is a partnership between UEA’s Centre for Behavioural and Experimental Social Science and Centre for Competition Policy and analogous research groups at the Universities of Nottingham and Warwick. NIBS has been funded by ESRC since 2013 and has established a reputation for world-class cross-disciplinary research in behavioural science. More information is available on Jobs.ac.uk
University of Warwick - closing date 25 February
Warwick Business School is seeking to fill a three-year research fellow post at the University of Warwick for the NIBS project. NIBS work is organised along three themes and, for the current post, we are seeking a candidate qualified and willing to contribute to one or both of Themes 1 and 3. For work related to Theme 1, primary tasks may include: contributing to the development of behavioural theory (e.g. concerning decision processes or environments); developing and conducting laboratory experimental research. Work contributing to theme 3 may involve microeconometric analysis of field data testing behaviourally grounded hyptheses. For either theme, you will be encouraged to contribute at all stages of research (inception, design, analysis and dissemination). Although based in the Warwick Business School, candidates will be encouraged to develop work that is both cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional. For more details please visit the University of Warwick's job website.
