The Department of Economics at the University of Calgary is accepting applications for a post-doctoral fellow researching in the areas of personal and social identity. Working with Dr. Robert Oxoby, this position will focus on how various social and personal identities become salient in market environments, and how the activation of these identities affect interactions and decision-making. This research position will focus on microeconomic theory, game theory, and experimental techniques to explore identity and decision-making. Potential applicants will have a completed PhD in Economics or Psychology with a strong background in game theory, experimental methods (laboratory and/or field experiments), social identity theory, and/or behavioral decision theory. Given the potential of this project, applicants must also have excellent communication skills and a creative mindset for research. The successful applicant will have access to resources for experiments, including two laboratories dedicated to experimental economics and psychology. Moreover, Calgary has numerous events and organizations that provide an excellent opportunity for field experiments. Resources will be available for conference travel. This position will be integrated in the undergraduate and graduate programs and provide opportunities for teaching in experimental methods and behavioral economics. It is expected that the successful applicant will also take advantage of the various funding opportunities available.
Calgary is a dynamic city with a population of just over one million. It has a vibrant economic climate, an active arts scene, including several new music series and festivals. Situated in the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, the city offers excellent year-round recreational opportunities.

Please submit a CV, cover letter with statement of research experience and interests, two research papers and the names and contact information for two letters of recommendation to Dr. Robert Oxoby at oxoby@ucalgary.ca. Applications will be reviewed beginning on March 15, 2013.

The Department of Economics and Finance at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand invites applications for the Erskine Fellowship, for 2013 and beyond.

BACKGROUND
John Angus Erskine (1872-1960) studied alongside Ernest Rutherford at the University of Canterbury in the 1890s, and subsequently enjoyed an outstanding career as an investment banker. Part of his bequest to the University provides annual funding for up to 75 international academic visitors to visit the Faculties of Commerce, Engineering or Science for the purpose of giving lectures in these subjects to students of the University.

DESCRIPTION
The Erskine Fellowship provides two return airfares, accommodation, and a daily sustenance allowance of NZ$100. Fellows are required to undertake some classroom teaching and contribute to the Department’s research environment. Recent Erskine visitors include Ted Bergstrom, Bram Cadsby, Tim Cason, James Cox, Vincent Crawford, Cary Deck and Morten Lau.

The duration of the Fellowship is normally between one and three months, although longer visits may also be possible. For 2013, the Department is particularly interested in visitors who are available for a full semester (18 February – 31 May or 8 July – 11 October 2013) to teach undergraduate experimental economics or behavioral economics class (2 x 50 min per week). Nevertheless, inquiries regarding shorter visits are also welcome, as are inquiries about subsequent years.

For details on the University’s 2013 academic year, see
http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/theuni/key_dates/ay2013.shtml

The Department features the newly established New Zealand Experimental Economics Laboratory (http://www.nzeel.canterbury.ac.nz/index.shtml)
which is a state-of-the-art facility with 36 fully partitioned workstations and separate experiment control room. NZEEL is available for use by the visiting researchers.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE
In the first instance, please direct inquiries or questions to Maroš Servátka (maros.servatka(at)canterbury.ac.nz).

Further details on the Erskine Program can be found at http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/erskine/index.shtml.

NSF Funding Opportunity: Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace

Posted on 2011/11/30. Filed under: 經濟, 綜合 | 標籤:, , , , |

The National Science Foundation has announced a new program called Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace (SaTC).  The program is open to receiving grant proposals and has a special interest in Social, Behavioral, and Economic sciences (SBE) science research.

The program is managed by three Directorates at the NSF, the Social, Behavioral, and Economic sciences (SBE), Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE), and the Office of Cyberinfrastructure (OCI).  Computer science and applied SBE science work should be submitted to CISE.  Proposals that facilitate a transition from research to practice should be submitted to OCI.  Proposals which both contribute to cybersecurity and advance basic SBE science research should be submitted to SBE.  Proposals can also be submitted to multiple Directorates and co-reviewed if appropriate.

Successful SBE submissions will involve contributions to rather than applications of the SBE sciences.  SBE-submitted SaTC proposals should help develop new knowledge or methods that contribute to the SBE sciences, while helping to develop a secure and trustworthy cyberspace.  In addition, SBE / SaTC is interested in proposals for workshops and other intellectual engagements that may advance SBE science efforts in the cybersecurity field.

You can learn more about the SaTC program via our solicitation:

http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2012/nsf12503/nsf12503.htm

We are holding a Webinar this Friday, Dec. 2, 1pm EST, to further describe the program and answer questions about it.  If you are interested, please register, ideally by end-of-day Dec. 1, at the following URL.  Registration is partly manual, so do not expect immediate acceptance.  If requests exceed capacity, some requests would be denied.  After your registration is accepted, you will get an email with a URL to join the Webinar.

https://mmancusa.webex.com/mmancusa/j.php?ED=17189938&RG=1&UID=0&RT=MiMxMQ%3D%3D

We will also be releasing a FAQ about the SBE portion of the program shortly.

Finally, we are seeking to hold online and face-to-face events to introduce social scientists and computer scientists to each other and their work, offering an opportunity to network and to identify potential collaborations.  These events will take place after proposals are due for the current solicitation, but may be useful for any planned 2013 submissions.

If you are interested in being contacted about the SaTC program and any of these future events, please email Matt Pines at mpines@nsf.gov.  Please include your name, the email address at which you would like to be contacted, your academic field, and your professional affiliation.  He will add you to our mailing list for SBE / SaTC, and you will receive notice of these future events.

Please feel free to share this email with anyone who might be interested in the program.  Similarly, please contact me if I can provide any additional information about the program.

I look forward to seeing your submissions.

Regards,
Peter Muhlberger
