Job Description

The Social and Moral Cognition Lab at Columbia University (PI: Larisa Heiphetz) invites applications for a post-doctoral fellow to work on a project entitled “The Development and Consequences of Moralizing God Concepts” funded by the John Templeton Foundation. This position is initially for one year with the strong expectation of renewal for a second year contingent on satisfactory performance. The lab provides support for post-doctoral fellows to develop their own research projects consistent with the aims of the grant, present their work at conferences, co-author articles, and participate in the intellectual life of Columbia and the broader New York area. Start date can be arranged with the PI and is expected to be sometime between June 1st and September 1st, 2019, although an earlier start date is possible for excellent candidates who graduate prior to Spring 2019. Review of applications will begin on November 15th, 2018, and will continue until the position is filled.

Salary will be commensurate with Columbia University’s guidelines. The fellow will also be eligible for benefits; see http://hr.columbia.edu/benefits
