Lehigh University: ADVANCING Future Faculty Diversity Postdoctoral Scholars Program

College of Business, Behavioral Research Lab (BRL) Postdoctoral Position The Behavioral Research Lab (BRL) in the College of Business at Lehigh University invites applications to the Advancing Future Faculty Diversity Postdoctoral Scholars Program. This initiative is for outstanding scholars with diverse backgrounds and perspectives who plan to pursue a career in the professoriate. The appointment is for one-year, with the possibility of renewal for one or two additional years upon mutual agreement. This opportunity is aimed at prospective future faculty whose experience and plans for teaching, research and service are aligned with creating a more diverse and inclusive academic culture of excellence at Lehigh, or institutions like Lehigh. Other eligibility details can be found online in the “About the Program” section.

Specifically the BRL seeks to attract, develop, and support a talented social and behavioral scientist with a strong background in psychology, political science, marketing, management, economics, organizational behavior, or other fields. The BRL also seeks candidates with interest in acquiring the research skills and experiences necessary to transition to tenure track faculty positions in business schools. Candidates with prior experience in conducting research in business schools are also encouraged to apply. We will also consider applicants with PhDs in statistics or data science whose work complements research in any of the six departments of Lehigh Business (Accounting, DATA, Economics, Finance, Management, or Marketing).

This is primarily a research position. There are no teaching obligations and most of the postdoc’s time will be dedicated to independent research. However, approximately half of the postdoctoral appointment will be devoted to managing the brand-new Behavioral Research Lab (BRL), under the mentorship of the four co-directors of the Lab: Felipe Augusto de Araujo (Economics), Joe Vitriol (Management), Danny Zane (Marketing) and Nevena Koukova (Marketing). The BRL has 25 individual stations, three private rooms for focus groups and interviews, and an observation room. The lab will serve as a dynamic hub for cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research throughout the College of Business and Lehigh community.
