The Behavioral Science for Policy Lab (BSPL), directed by Professor Elke Weber, is an interdisciplinary lab at the intersection of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, the Woodrow Wilson School for Public Policy, and the Psychology Department. BSLP brings together researchers of varied backgrounds to shed light on the psychological foundations of real-world decisions, with a focus on issues relating to energy and the environment. Decisions made by engineers, policy makers, climate change negotiators, and members of the general public. Our methods range from process-tracing in controlled lab and virtual-lab experiments, to field experiments in real-world settings, to using big data, and include both quantitative modeling and qualitative approaches. The research is founded on the idea that psychological theory needs to interface with social sciences, physical and biological sciences, and engineering to effectively address large-scale societal problems, such as climate change.
The lab manager will report directly to the lab director, Professor Weber, and work closely with postdocs, graduate students and lab staff. The position will supervise the research specialist (lab coordinator). The lab manager will facilitate and coordinate many aspects of BSPL research initiatives.
Education: Bachelor degree (BA or BS) in relevant field required.
Experience: 3-6 years’ experience in academic research lab, preferably behavioral science. Must possess strong managerial and organizational skills, with the ability to manager several concurrent tasks. Proficient in MS Office. Qualtrics and R programming language is preferred. Knowledge of linear models, analysis of variance and data visualization methods is strongly preferred. Familiarity with big data is a plus.
