I am posting this for my colleague, Eliot Smith.
> Position available:
> POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER IN SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY OR COGNITIVE SCIENCE.
> A postdoctoral researcher is sought for two years (summer 06 -
> summer 08) to work on an NSF-funded project on the dynamics of
> information flow, social influence, and decision making in social
> networks (Eliot Smith, PI). The project concerns the ways people
> combine information from their own personal experience with
> information that is socially provided by other people, as they make
> judgments and shape their social behavior. The project touches on
> many areas of social psychology and cognitive science, including:
> implicit and explicit attitudes, conformity/social influence
> processes, social networks of acquaintanceship and friendship,
> interpersonal attraction and close relationships, information
> transmission in networks (e.g., gossip), and social judgment
> processes. Research will involve laboratory experimental studies
> with human subjects, including studies using virtual reality
> technology, as well as multi-agent computational modeling. This
> project offers an outstanding opportunity to conduct and publish
> research using a variety of state-of-the-art techniques, to
> supervise graduate students and undergraduate research assistants,
> and to collaborate with researchers representing diverse fields.
> The ideal candidate for this position would have solid training in
> social psychology (especially attitudes/social cognition, but areas
> such as group processes or close relationships would also be
> useful) or cognitive science, as well as broad interests beyond
> their specific area of training -- the co-investigators on this
> project include researchers in social psychology, cognitive
> science, economics, and complex adaptive systems. Strong
> quantitative skills are a must and computer programming experience
> would be a plus.
> Applicants should send a current vita, a statement of research
> experience and interests, and three letters of reference, all
> addressed to
> Eliot R. Smith, PhD.
