Behavioral Research Fellows work with different faculty and PhD students at the Kellogg School of Management, assisting with experiments and other behavioral research projects. Research duties will vary from project to project, but may span all aspects of the research life cycle. Duties may include: reviewing literature, reviewing data packages, designing experiments, programming surveys or other web-based experiments, testing experiments prior to deployment, scheduling and running experiments alone or with additional research assistants, and analyzing experimental results. Experiments occur in either a laboratory or an online setting.
We seek applicants who want to apply for a Ph.D. program in social psychology, marketing, organizational behavior, or a related behavioral science field in the pursuit of an academic research career. The ideal candidate will have: (i) exposure to the methodologies and software tools commonly used in psychology experiments; (ii) past experience with research, either as a research assistant or from doing independent research of one’s own and (iii) strong organizational skills and attention to detail.
If selected, you will be offered a one-year appointment with a summer start-date, with the ability to renew for one year based on performance. Successful candidates will have completed at least a bachelor’s degree by the employment start date. Your application must include a cover letter. In that letter, briefly describe your academic career goals and how a predoctoral appointment at Kellogg will serve those goals. If there are particular Kellogg faculty you want to work with, please mention them in the letter as well.
