The department of Social and Decision Sciences (SDS) at Carnegie Mellon University is seeking applicants for a full-time, tenure track, position in behavioral economics. We are open to candidates with interests in theory and/or applied work, including lab experiments, field research, big data, and neuroscience. Applicants must have an outstanding research record or potential and candidates with interdisciplinary interests are encouraged to apply. We are especially interested in junior level candidates, but are open to applications from individuals at all levels. The appointment is expected to begin July 1, 2020.
SDS is interdisciplinary, including economists, psychologists, mathematicians, and historians. Several have joint appointments in other units, notably the Department of Engineering and Public Policy (in CMU's engineering college) and the Heinz College of Public Policy and Information Systems. Current projects and faculty are described at the department's website: www.cmu.edu/dietrich/sds/. SDS has particular strengths in behavioral decision research and behavioral economics, cognitive science, and complex social systems. Collaboration is a hallmark of the department and the university.
Applicants should upload a letter of application stating research interests and teaching areas, a curriculum vitae, one current research paper, and three letters of recommendation.
