What’s happening at our International Partners?

The Network for Integrated Behavioural Science (NIBS) offers an exchange programme for our researchers, which involves seven other international centres of excellence in behavioural science.  Here’s a quick look at what’s happening at some of these partner institutions right now.

The Center for Research in Experimental Economics and Political Decision Making – CREED (Amsterdam)

* Advertising for a Post Doc in The School of Economics. They say; “the postdoc will run online experimental auctions and economic lab experiments to improve our understanding of potential drivers behind the slow take up of MEF processing technologies, including consumers’ relatively low willingness-to-pay for innovatively produced products, senior management conservatism, and stringent anti-cartel law”.  Closing date 15 April 2018.

* Advertising for a Post Doc on a Behavioural Ethics Project – closing date 1 May 2018

* You can also see their most recent publications and working papers on their website.

The Center for Behavioral and Decision Research, Carnegie Mellon

* CBDR organises a regular seminar series – next up is Mike Jones from Indiana University with “Modeling explore-exploit tradeoffs in search of semantic memory”, taking place Thursday, March 29, 2018, from 12:00pm to 1:15pm in 223D Porter Hall.  Details of more seminars – past and upcoming – can be found on the CBDR website.

* Also online is some useful information for their researchers – essential reading if you’re planning a NIBS exchange visit.

The Center for Adaptive Rationality at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development (Berlin)

* Take a look at who’s who in the Center and browse their latest publications.

Thurgau Institute of Economics at the University of Konstanz

* Take a look at who’s who at the Institute.  Many of you will recognise Urs Fischbacher who’s visited Nottingham on a number of occasions to deliver training, and as part of the exchange visit when Nottingham hosted PhDs, Post Docs and Faculty from Konstanz in May 2016.  Those of you who run experiments will also be familiar with the Z-Tree software package developed by Urs.  UPDATE: Urs will be visiting CeDEx at Nottingham to give a seminar on 31 October 2018.
