The Economics Department in the Business School is seeking to recruit a post-doctoral Research Fellow who will work with colleagues in Economics and Health Psychology on the ESRC-funded project, ‘Performance Pay and Stress: An Interdisciplinary Study’.
The Research Fellow will have extensive experience in laboratory-based experiments and statistical modelling skills with familiarity in working with large secondary datasets. The Research Fellow will be central in developing the software programs to be used in the laboratory-based experiments, recruiting subjects, running the experiments and generating results from the data collected in the experiments. The Research Fellow will also be involved in the analysis of survey data from a large secondary dataset. Finally, the Research Fellow will help the research team in the dissemination of the results of the study, assisting in the writing of academic and non-academic papers and presenting results in conferences to both academic and non-academic stakeholders.
The successful applicant will have a strong background in running experiments using human subjects, ideally from a social science context (e.g. in Experimental Economics, Psychology or a closely related field). The applicant should have a extensive experience in designing computer programmes used in experimental settings (e.g. z-tree or similar) and experience in running laboratory-based experiments using human subjects. The applicant should also have experience in analysing data using common statistical programmes such as Stata or SPSS. Finally, the successful applicant should have excellent communication skills and the ability to engage with academic and non-specialist communities about the findings from the project.
Salary will be on the Grade 6 salary scale (£33,199 per annum)
Any appointment will be made subject to satisfactory references and a 12 month probation period.
