Two research fellow positions are available to work primarily on social psychological aspects of climate change, sustainability, social change, and social justice. These are 5 year positions within the Research School of Psychology at the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra, Australia.

The ANU has a strong international reputation in social psychology. Researchers in the school include:

  • Michael Platow (social identity, prejudice, fairness & justice, leadership)
  • Kate Reynolds (social identity, norms & behavior change, discrimination, social cohesion)
  • Iain Walker (sustainability, social justice, social change, climate change)
  • Tegan Cruwys (social identity, social determinants of health)
  • Boris Bizumic (ethnocentrism, personality, political intolerance)
  • Conal Monaghan (Machiavellianism, psychometrics, personality)
  • Eryn Newman (truthiness, memory, decision making)
  • Michael Smithson (decision making, uncertainty)
  • Dirk Van Rooy (agent-based models to study social behaviour)
  • Diana Cardenas (multiple identities, migration, identity development)
  • Yiyun Shou (uncertainty, risk, decision making)
  • Mark Stevens (social identity, physical activity, health behaviour)

The social psychology group contains a diversity of perspectives, approaches, and interests. Many of the academics are experts in social identity and self-categorization theories (John C. Turner was at ANU 1990-2008). However, these two research fellow positions are not tied to any particular theory or approach.

It is an exciting time to join ANU Psychology as it is in a phase of growth and expansion. For further information please visit
