The Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, in collaboration with the Department of Psychology at Princeton University invites applications for a postdoctoral or more senior research position from individuals with a recent PhD degree in Psychology or related disciplines with behavioral and policy relevance.

Appointees may also, if mutually agreed, lead discussion sections for an undergraduate course given by the Psychology Department or the Woodrow Wilson School. Any teaching is contingent on sufficient enrollments and must be approved by the Dean of the Faculty.

A PhD degree in Psychology or related disciplines with behavioral and policy relevance is required.  A background in behavioral decision research or social psychological research is a plus.

Applicants must apply online at www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/5321 and submit a cover letter, C.V., and contact information for three references. This position is subject to the University's background check policy.
