Aidan Coville and I have been running a behavioural experiment with policymakers, practitioners and researchers to see how they update based on new evidence from impact evaluations and what biases they may have in updating. We have done some analysis of the numerical data, but we also have the audio transcripts from the one-on-one enumeration, where people were asked to describe their thought processes and why they gave the answers they gave. We are looking for someone proficient in text analysis to collaborate on a separate paper. This would be a great opportunity for grad students, but others welcome, too. Please pass on to anyone you know who might be interested.
Second, please see this post for a description of a Research Assistant position. Deadline is Jan. 31.
Finally, I am helping to organize a workshop for the Global Priorities Institute at the University of Oxford on causal inference and extrapolation. The call for papers is closed but please get in touch if you are interested in attending, as space is limited.
