Two post-doc positions available to work with Daniel Nettle on an ANR funded project entitled 'THRESHOLD'. The project is to test the assumptions and predictions of the model set out in de Courson and Nettle (2021, Scientific Reports, 11:1839). One post is to work on experiments, building on the paper by Radkani et al. (2023, Royal Society Open Science, 10: 221385). The other will develop a more community-based study, investigating intuitions about the consequences of loss of resources, and will work at least partly in populations experiencing economic adversity. The details of the project are somewhat open within the general framework of the desperation threshold theory. Please apply with a letter of motivation outlining which post interests you and how you would like to tackle the project.

For further information, please contact Daniel Nettle (daniel.nettle@ens.psl.eu)

The positions will form part of the Evolution and Social Cognition team within the Institut Jean Nicod.


The post-docs will be responible for the whole life cycle of empirical studies:
- Design and conception
- Preregistration
- Ethics
- Recruitment and data collection
- Data analysis
- Writing up of preprints and articles
- Conference and public dissemination of knowledge

In addition, we expect post-docs to collaborate and to play an active part of the research group and the broader Evolution and Social Cognition team.


- Reproducible and ethical research practices
- Quantitative data analysis skills
- Design and interpretation of empirical studies
- Scientific writing in English
- Collegiality and willingness to collaborate

Contexte de travail

The Institut Jean Nicod, in the fifth arrondissement of Paris, is an unparalleled interdisciplinary environment for research on mind and behaviour (http://www.institutnicod.org/). The Evolution and Social Cognition team (https://esc.dec.ens.fr/en) studies social cognition in a broad sense in light of evolutionary biology, in order to better understand a variety of behavioural, societal and cultural phenomena.
