Post-doctoral Researcher

This 2-year post-doctoral position will be co-mentored by Dr. Colin Tucker Smith in the Psychology Department and Dr. Jason von Meding in the Florida Institute for Built Environment Resilience (FIBER) within the M.E. Rinker, Sr. School of Construction Management. Further, the successful applicant will be affiliated with the UF Consortium on Trust in Media and Technology.

As such, it's a fairly unique opportunity to work collaboratively with Drs. Smith and von Meding at the intersection of social psychology and disaster studies while focusing on issues of trust. Although we are open to viewing this in broad ways, a prototypical project would be building trust by tailoring persuasive messages to the psychological profile of the audience. In other words, "speaking with" vs. "speaking to".

The position will also include a public-facing aspect in terms of writing about our work for outlets such as The Conversation. Of note, the position is funded by UF's College of Journalism and Communications and there will be support for nurturing that particular skill set.

As noted in the job announcement (https://apply.interfolio.com/74527), we are strongly committed to diversity and to the tenets of "open science" and encourage applicants to address both in their cover letters.

We will begin looking at applications on March 27th; the position will remain open until filled. It can begin at any time before August. Please feel free to contact me (colinsmith@ufl.edu) with any questions you may have!
