Postdoctoral position on attention and decision making at Aarhus University

The Department of Management at Aarhus University, invites applications for a 2-year postdoctoral position offering applicants an exciting opportunity to join a new research project on the role of attention in decision making.

The starting date is 1st December 2019 or subject to mutual agreement.

The research project
This project is funded by the Independent Research Fund (https://dff.dk/en/grants/research-leaders-2018/jacob-l-orquin?set_language=en) and will combine theories from vision science and decision making, to develop a model of visual attention and decision making. The project will also explore how merely looking more or less at a choice option can change our preference for that option. The resulting theory will be able to explain, for instance, which products consumers look at and which ones they ignore and use this to better predict consumer choices. The project will contribute to basic research by developing a theory and model of a) eye movements in decision making, explaining how consideration sets are formed and b) how consumer choices result from application of preferences to consideration sets. Furthermore, the project will contribute to public policy by providing a process-oriented and predictive alternative to current choice models. The project has several international collaborators including Ray Dolan and Hrvoje Stojic at University College London, and Peter M. Todd at Indiana University.

Job description
The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the overall objectives of the project by being involved in all phases of the project, including formulating research questions, experimental designs, analyses, and writing articles. The position is research-oriented, but may involve teaching assignments depending on the interests of the candidate. The position is for 2 years with possibility of extension. The candidate will collaborate with a small team of international project partners, but also interact with a larger group of about ten colleagues who work in the intersection between cognitive science and management research. Lab equipment and facilities are available as well as funds for experiments, student assistants, conference travels, seminars etc.

Qualifications
Candidates must hold a PhD relevant to the academic areas of the project and have experience with data analysis and programming of experiments in at least one programming language such as R, Python, or Matlab. Experience with decision making, eye tracking, and computational modeling is desirable.

Who we are
The Department of Management is one of the six departments at Aarhus BSS, one of the four faculties at Aarhus University. Aarhus BSS unites the research fields of business and social sciences bringing them closer together to reflect the close relationship between society and the business community. As part of a Top-100 university, Aarhus BSS, and specifically the Department of Management, has achieved the distinguished AASCB, AMBA and Equis accreditations.

The department’s research and teaching environment is highly international and culturally diverse with a mix of Danish and international academic staff members and PhD students. We employ more than 160 academic staff including researchers, PhD students, research associates and cover a broad range of disciplines within management, e.g. marketing, international business, organization, HR, strategy, management accounting, innovation management, entrepreneurship, project management, and information systems. We aim to conduct high-quality research, and we give high priority to publishing our research in leading academic journals and presenting it at recognized conferences. In addition, we have a dynamic exchange of international researchers, who stay at the department for short or long periods of time.

The positions are two-year positions starting on 1 February 2020 The Centre for Multifunctional Biomolecular Drug Design aims to develop new multi-functional drugs. Most drugs used today have only one therapeutic effect and it is both difficult and expensive to manufacture drugs with several functions. The aim of the Centre for Multifunctional Biomolecular Drug Design (CEMBID) is to research into new drugs with multiple mechanisms of action. The centre will develop methods to build modules of different proteins and small molecules that are conjugated to oligonucleotides and that can simply and effectively be linked to make multifunctional drugs. This will pave the way for new types of drugs that potentially are more effective, have fewer side effects, and can be adapted to the individual patient. Job description The candidates will prepare multifunctional biomolecular drugs assembled by nucleic acids. This involves application and development of bioconjugation methods in particular between proteins and nucleic acids. The positions will also include design of DNA nanostructures for assembly of such conjugates. The structures will be tested in cell cultures and eventually in animal models. The successful candidates for these positions should have experience in organic synthesis, nucleic acid self-assembly and preferably also protein biochemistry. The candidates are expected to collaborate with PhD students and undergraduates. The Centre The place of work is the interdisciplinary Nanoscience Centre (iNANO), Gustav Wieds Vej 14, Aarhus, and the area of employment is Aarhus University with related departments.
