Post-doctoral researcher, full time

Webster Vienna Private University - Department of Psychology
Deadline for application: 31st of January 2018


Within the remit of a joint project funded by the French ANR and the Austrian FWF, the Psychology Department at Webster Vienna Private University is currently recruiting a post-doctoral researcher to work on nonverbal indicators of attitudes, prejudice, and discrimination (the requirements for the position are described below). More specifically, we will investigate subtle or implicit harassment in everyday interactions, a form of unfavorable treatment aimed at producing feelings of inferiority in out-group members. The project involves a mixture of ethological field studies and psychological experiments conducted in parallel in Paris and Vienna. The candidate should be at ease with handling data collection and analysis at multiple levels: observational (nonverbal behavior), cognitive (social decision making), and physiological (peripheral measures). The project involves regular exchanges between Webster Vienna Private University (WVPU) and the Center for Studies in Migration and Interethnic Relations (URMIS) in Paris, and possibly other European sites like Berlin and Brussels.
