ESA-announce Position Announcements at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
The Office of Research at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau will be posting the announcements for Senior Fellow positions beginning March 6th and closing at midnight EST on Friday March 8th and for Social/Behavioral Scientist positions beginning Monday March 11th and closing at midnight EST on Friday March 15th.
Positions will be posted at http://www.consumerfinance.gov/jobs/title
We are seeking applicants with expertise in one or more of the following areas: judgment and decision-making, heuristics and biases, risk perception, decision analysis, social influences (e.g., trust, persuasion, and deception), negotiation, and discrimination and with a strong interest in conducting research on consumer financial decision making, monitoring of behavior of consumers in financial markets and research on the role and efficacy of financial education interventions.
Senior Fellow positions are visiting positions for mid-career and senior researchers.
Social/Behavioral Scientist positions are Permanent and are open to both junior and senior (grade levels CN 52/53/60) and very senior scholars (grade level CN 71) (you can apply to multiple grade levels and will be evaluated for each level individually)).
Information on courses taken is required as part of the application process. It is ideal if you can submit an undergraduate transcript but, in lieu of that, try and be as comprehensive as possible in listing relevant coursework you have completed in the past (course names, credit hours, grade and date of completion).
Also, the announcements list qualifying degrees for the positions (Psychologist, Statistician, or Economist for the Senior Fellows; and Psychologist, Social Scientist, or Economist for the permanent positions). If you have a degree in another field (e.g., marketing or decision science), in your cover letter provide a detailed description of the relationship between the coursework in your major and the course requirements in the fields lists in the announcement.
Non-U.S. Citizens with permanent residency will be considered as permitted.
If you have questions about eligibility or the application process, please contact Amanda Mcleish at amanda.mcleish(at)bpd.treas.gov.
