ESA-announce Re: Post-doctoral position at GSPIA –University of Pittsburgh
Apologies for the re-post. Thanks to those who alerted me that the attachment for my recent announcement for the postdoctoral position at GSPIA (University of Pittsburgh) did not go through — I am copying and pasting it directly below. To answer some of your questions, the experimental component will relate to cooperation / prosocial behavior and belief formation in disasters and other extreme events. Familiarity with either Java programming or GIS are desirable for this interdisciplinary fellowship.
