Professor Krishna Savani at the Department of Management and Marketing, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, is recruiting a Postdoctoral Fellow with a focus on environmental psychology. An interest in exploring the intersection of culture and environmental decision making would be awesome but is not required. There is ample funding for research and attending conferences, and no teaching would be required. The lab has postdocs, graduate students, and research assistants working in psychology, decision making, and organizational behavior.  

This fellowship will be a two-year position beginning between October 2023 and June 2024. Applicants should have experience conducting experimental behavioral science research and must have completed a PhD in a relevant discipline (e.g., social psychology, decision making, consumer behavior) prior to beginning the fellowship.

To Apply

Please e-mail the following documents to (1) your CV, (2) one or two first-authored manuscripts, and (3) a cover letter describing how your background, experience, and interests fit with this position. Please include “Envt postdoc application” in the subject line.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until filled.

Living in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is still one of the world’s major international cities – diverse, bustling, and cosmopolitan. There are tons of outdoor activities – nearly 40% of the land devoted to nature parks, and there are dozens of beaches and islands. Hiking is the favorite national pastime. Hong Kong is also big on art, music, and theater. Although housing is tight, it’s no different from other major metropolitan areas, such as New York City and London. The overall cost of living is 30% cheaper than in New York, and there are many fun travel opportunities nearby (e.g., in South East Asia and the China mainland). The total tax rate is capped at 15%. The Hong Kong dollar is pegged to the US dollar.
