Application review begins March 15, 2018
The Institute for Society and Genetics (ISG) at the University of California at Los Angeles (www.socgen.ucla.edu), invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow position beginning July 1, 2018. The Institute for Society and Genetics, housed in the Division of Life Sciences at UCLA, is an interdisciplinary research and teaching unit focused on issues at the intersection of biology and society. The successful candidate will work with Drs. Aaron Panofsky and Christopher Kelty on an NSF funded project (Grant # 1734683) about the dynamics and implications of recent projects, organizations, and reforms seeking to improve the robustness and reliability of biomedical and behavioral science by tracing examples of contemporary controversies surrounding, for example, the reproducibility crisis, post-publication peer review, “predatory” publishing. The postdoctoral fellow will support the PIs by conducting interviews and participant observation, collection and management of textual materials, the management of student researchers, data analysis, and write up of results.
