The Office of the Investor Advocate (OIAD) at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) currently has multiple full-time Ph.D. Economist, Statistician, and Social Scientist positions to fill this year. OIAD is an independent office within the SEC that advocates internally and externally on investor protection issues.  Researchers in OIAD are expected to conduct policy-relevant research to advance OIAD's mission.  To that end, researchers are expected to develop and maintain strong policy and academic connections.
The positions will support OIAD's investor testing initiative, POSITIER (Policy Oriented Stakeholder and Investor Testing for Innovative and Effective Regulation), which is widely recognized as one of the most dynamic research initiatives in government. POSITIER specializes in academic and policy research in multiple domains, including household finance, labor economics, behavioral economics, decision sciences, law and economics, and traditional finance.  Currently, our specific research streams relate to: disclosure effectiveness for better decision-making by retail investors; financial advice; investor perceptions and (non-)participation; investor behavior; and traditional finance topics (e.g., issues in the mutual fund market).  In addition, our group conducts independent critiques of the economic analysis of rule proposals that are produced by other parts of the SEC.
Through POSITIER, OIAD has perhaps the most flexible and powerful suite of data capture tools to deploy of any government entity. OIAD principally conducts high quality experiments (field, lab, and survey-based), nationally representative probability-based surveys of households and firms, and supplemental qualitative studies. Over the past few years, we have also built exciting and unmatched capacities with administrative data.
We are seeking motivated candidates who are interested in performing high-quality academic and policy research.  Candidates should possess specialized skills, and an interest in working in interdisciplinary teams of researchers from multiple fields.  Candidates completing their Ph.D. in 2021 are eligible.  Those with an interest in: household finance, labor, behavioral economics, law and economics, finance (particularly the study of mutual funds, but also with interests in corporate finance and asset pricing), marketing, decision science, psychology, experiments, or survey methodology are strongly encouraged to apply.
Desired Qualifications for all positions:
1) Ph.D. in Economics, Finance, Statistics, Decision Science, Marketing, Psychology or related fields
2) An interest in investor issues or the study of investor behavior is desirable.
3) Strong empirical research skills (e.g. econometrics, design of experiments, survey methodology).  All candidates must be able to analyze existing data and help develop new datasets via surveys, experiments, administrative data, etc.
4) An interest in working in a fast-paced policy environment is essential.  Prior policy experience is desirable, but not required.

1) Economists - The OIAD roles are most appropriate for economists with a background in household finance, labor, econometrics, behavioral economics/finance, law and economics, or related fields.
2) Financial Economists - Financial Economists should be able to serve as technical experts on investment products, markets, and asset pricing topics (particularly with investor-focused products like mutual funds and ETFs), or corporate governance issues.
3) Decision Scientists - Decision Scientists should have specialized background in analyzing human judgments or behaviors, marketing, psychology or a related field.
4) Statisticians - Statisticians should have a strong background in development of household finance and labor surveys, and/or in the design and analysis of experiments.

(Listed 02/04/21) Two Assistant Professors, University of Amsterdam

The Psychological Methods group of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) seeks to appoint two Assistant Professors who are willing and able to further develop our research and educational programmes in the field of Behavioural Data Science. The position concerns a temporary appointment of 38 hours/week for a term of 2 years.

The Psychological Methods group is one of the largest and most successful research and education centres in the field of psychological methods. Its main areas of research are network analysis, Bayesian statistics, mathematical psychology, and psychometrics. Next to developing novel research methodologies, we also actively develop psychological theories on a variety of topics, including intelligence, psychopathology, and decision making. In addition, the group has a general focus on supporting open science and has made important methodological contributions to facilitate transparent research practices in the past decade.

In recent years, we have developed a successful educational programme around the idea of Behavioural Data Science (BDS). This newly emerging field involves the analysis of behaviourally defined variables as they arise in large datasets, typically gathered using modern digital technology (e.g., online or through mobile devices) and analysed with techniques for detecting patterns from high-dimensional data (e.g., network modeling, machine learning) to facilitate understanding, prediction, and control of human behaviour.

What will you be doing?

As Assistant Professor you maintain an independent programme of research in a combination of at least two of the following fields: Psychometrics, Mathematical Psychology, Bayesian statistics, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence. You will be required to teach Bachelor and Master courses on at least one of these topics, and supervise individual student projects at the Bachelor and Master level.

45% of your time will be devoted to research and 55% to teaching. Some involvement in the organizational tasks of the programme group is also expected.

What do we require of you?

You have:

  • a doctorate with specialization in Psychometrics, Mathematical Psychology, Bayesian statistics, Machine Learning or Artificial Intelligence;
  • an excellent track record, both in terms of research and in terms of teaching;
  • a plan for developing your research;
  • enthusiasm for teaching as well as a commitment to excellence in teaching;
  • mastery of the Dutch language or a willingness to learn Dutch;
  • availability starting before 1 July 2021.
