Job Description

Postdoctoral Research Associate 

The Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and the Department of Psychology at Princeton University invite applications for a postdoctoral or more senior  research position from individuals with a PhD degree or who expect to receive a PhD degree by October 1, 2018 in Psychology or related disciplines with behavioral and policy relevance. The position is offered for one year, with the possibility of renewal, contingent upon funding and satisfactory performance.

In addition to carrying out independent research, the appointee often collaborates with one or more faculty members. Beyond research (along with some financial support), the appointee will be expected to assist in the teaching of the "psychology and policy" course, including the evaluation of written work by masters’ students and leadership of discussion sections for the class. Appointees may also lead discussion sections for an undergraduate course given by the Psychology Department or the Woodrow Wilson School. Any teaching is contingent on sufficient enrollments and must be approved by the Dean of the Faculty.

 A PhD degree in Psychology or related disciplines with behavioral and policy relevance is required.  A background in behavioral decision research or social psychological research is a plus. 

 Applicants must apply online and submit a CV, cover letter, and contact information for three references. This position is subject to the University's background check policy.  The deadline for submission is September 15 for full consideration. The position will be starting as soon as October 1, 2018.

Princeton University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
