We are seeking individuals with a PhD in Social or Organizational Psychology, Organizational Behavior, or related disciplines such as Behavioral Economics for a Postdoctoral Research Position at the University of Lausanne in an interdisciplinary project in Psychology and Economics with economist Lorenz Goette. The position is for one year with a possible renewal and is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation. The project combines economic and psychological theories and methods to examine referent dependent evaluations (e.g., social comparison processes) and their relevance for well-being, decision making, and choice. Experience with research on emotions is desirable. Responsibilities include: designing and conducting behavioral experiments, doing statistical analyses, writing manuscripts for publication, and coordinating research assistants. We are looking for a detail-oriented individual with a sense of initiative, strong quantitative skills, and good conceptual, writing, and organizational skills. No teaching is necessary.

Review of applications will start immediately until the position is filled. The start date is as early as November 1st 2013. Please send a letter of application, a CV, a statement of research interests, and sample papers in one pdf file to Vera Shuman at

Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience -- please see, for example:

Lausanne is in the French speaking part of Switzerland and has about 40% foreigners. French language skills are desirable but not required.
