Postdoctoral Research Associate: Cognitive Science + Big Data for Sustainable Energy Transformation

The Center for Policy Research on Energy and the Environment at Princeton University invites applications for a postdoctoral or more senior researcher in cognitive science and big data to facilitate social and policy change for a sustainable energy transformation. This person will conduct research that uses big data including text corpuses and theory-based as well as data-based (machine learning) interpretation of such data to extract patterns and dynamic processes in the behavior of individuals, groups, and organizations that contribute to or reduce greenhouse-gas emissions. Successful applicants should be skilled in: 1) retrieval of such data (e.g., digital news, social media, etc.), 2) computational methods to extract information from such data, 3) psychological or behavioral science research methods, 4) quantitative analysis and modeling methods applied to assessment of human responses to climate change or other social change. This research effort aims to combine diverse methods and lines of evidence to improve individual choice and private and public sector policy design and implementation in domains where faulty incentives and bounded rationality are barriers to environmental sustainability and justice. The position reports to Professor Elke Weber and will collaborate with other researchers in Princeton's Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment and Department of Psychology. The appointment will be through the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs. The appointment is for one year, and may be renewed pending satisfactory performance and continued funding.

A PhD is required in a related field. Salary and full employee benefits are offered in accordance with University guidelines.

Applicants must submit a CV, contact information for three references, and a cover letter describing their areas of expertise and interest. References may be contacted for the candidates who make the shortlist for this position. The submission must be online via AHIRE link.: https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/20441

The review process will commence immediately and continue until the position is filled.  This position is subject to the University's background check policy.

We at the School of Public and International Affairs believe that it is vital to cultivate an environment that embraces and promotes diversity, equity and inclusion - fundamental to the success of our education and research mission.  This commitment to diversity informs our efforts in recruitment and hiring as we actively seek colleagues of exceptional ability who represent a broad range of viewpoints, experiences and value systems, and who share Princeton University's dedication to excellence.
