Affiliated Students Program Organizational Meeting

Students and Postdocs Only


Event Description

The Kahneman-Treisman Center is launching its Student Affiliate program and welcome all graduate students, undergraduates, post-doctoral fellows and others interested in connecting more with a community of scholars and practitioners from any field who find human judgment and decision-making fascinating.

Those interested in shaping the emphasis of the Student Affiliate program are invited to meet Monday, November 7, at 3:00 pm in 417 Robertson Hall.

Regardless of their home department or primary discipline, Student Affiliates of the Kahneman-Treisman Center are interested in investigating the way humans make decisions and how the systems, practices, and policies that govern how people move through the world can be designed with these inclinations in mind.

Student Affiliates can expect to:

  • Receive news about Center events, invitations to meet with visitors, and funding opportunities for conference travel and research;
  • Discuss seminal or recent studies with associates who share their interests but bring diverse disciplinary and methodological approaches to the work;
  • Interact with our faculty affiliates and visitors in both academic and social settings;
  • Provide their own insights to our works-in-progress series presenters (and have the opportunity to present their own work and benefit from the wide-ranging perspective of the community);
  • Develop student-led events and activities (including but not limited to invited talks, workshops, research projects, and trips to relevant conferences) with the support of Center staff and funding

To apply, undergraduate students, graduate students, or postdocs should send a note of interest to [email protected]explaining why they want to become an affiliate and what they could bring to the community (including information on their current research program and relevant work or extracurricular experience, and whether they would be interested in a leadership role). Only students affiliated with Princeton University are eligible to apply. 

We are now receiving applications, on a rolling basis, for the 2022-23 Academic Year.
