Postdoctoral position in collective climate change behaviour
Universität Konstanz

Postdoctoral position in collective climate change behaviour(full-time, E 13 TV-L)Reference number 2024/122. The expected starting date is 01.09.2024, but it is negotiable. The duration of the position is two years, with a possible extension for a maximum of an additional two years. The extension is subject to the continued funding of the cluster. In principle, the position could be divided into two half-time positions. The University of Konstanz is one of eleven Universities of Excellence in Germany. Since 2007 it has been successful in the German Excellence Initiative and its follow-up programme, the Excellence Strategy.We are a Cluster of Excellence within the Excellence Strategy of the German Federal and State Governments. Being a cooperation between the University of Konstanz and the Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior, we use the extensive expertise in the region to create an interdisciplinary environment for the study of collective behaviour that is unique worldwide. "The Centre for the Advanced Study of Collective Behaviour" is dedicated to the study of collective behaviour across a variety of species and across different organizational levels. For more information on the Cluster of Excellence, please visit: Collective Behaviour | exc.uni-konstanz.de.Are you interested in trying to understand how to promote climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies, especially in collectives? Do you want to understand how and why climate change is impacting human (and potentially animal) cognition, well-being, and other psychological processes? Do you want to work on very interdisciplinary topics, with an applied angle? We are seeking a PostDoc who has finished (or about to finish) a doctoral degree in behavioural/cognitive science, environmental/social psychology, or a related field. The researcher will be based in the new Environmental Collective Behaviour (ECo) group in the beautiful Konstanz, Germany.The ECo group, led by Dr. Kimberly Doell, is focused on harnessing an interdisciplinary approach to address societal issues, particularly the challenges related to climate change, through collective efforts and evidence-based solutions. With an extensive network of local and international collaborators that spans the globe, we offer a nurturing environment for personal well-being and professional growth (e.g., via regular mentorship meetings). The candidate will enjoy a significant degree of independence to pursue research interests within our group’s themes, guided by Dr. Doell’s expertise and in collaboration with our diverse partners. We are committed to development through a variety of professional opportunities, including seminars, workshops, and conferences. Recognizing the importance of work-life balance, we support flexible working arrangements and comprehensive wellness programs, ensuring our team members are both inspired and well-supported in their endeavors. The PostDoc will be responsible for leading novel experimental research aimed at understanding the reciprocal relationships between a changing environment and humans/animals.The PostDoc project can potentially address the following questions:1. How does the changing climate impact social and cognitive functioning, and well-being?2. How can we translate recent academic findings into real-world solutions/interventions, and then test them, in this space?3. How and why do interventions work at the individual-level and according to what characteristics of different populations of people? 4. How can we test and develop better, more targeted interventions to stimulate societal change (e.g., collective level climate actions)?5. How do perceptions, beliefs, and attitudes relating to the collective also influence individual-level decisions and actions?
