PhD in the field of collective behaviours

We seek a PhD student with excellent programming skills for scientific research in the field of collective behaviours. The phD project will investigate how judgments, behaviours, and emotions spread in social networks. It will involve the development of online experiments and the use of multi-agent simulations. Potential domains of research include collective intelligence, social influence, group self-organization, and decision-making under risk and uncertainty.

The Max Planck Institute for Human Development (www.mpib-berlin.mpg.de) is a highly interdisciplinary and international research group where English is the working language. We offer an excellent infrastructure including support staff and equipment for conducting experiments (e.g., behavioural laboratory, fMRI, supercomputers).

The Max Planck Society is committed to employing more handicapped individuals and especially encourages them to apply. The Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.

The PhD contract is for three years. Applications (consisting of a cover letter describing your research interests, a curriculum vitae, up to three reprints, and two letters of recommendation) should be sent as a single PDF file, with your name as the file name, to Monika Oppong (oppong@mpib-berlin.mpg.de; Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Lentzeallee 94, 14195 Berlin).

Applications must be submitted by November 15, 2015, to ensure consideration. However, review of applications will continue until the position is filled. For further inquiries about the position, please contact Mehdi Moussaïd (moussaid@mpib-berlin.mpg.de).
