TOMORROW: Shane Auerbach will give a BRITE Lab academic workshop tomorrow, Friday, 10/27 from 2-3 PM in 1199 Nancy Nicholas Hall. Shane is a PhD candidate in Economics, and received a 2016-2017 BRITE research grant for this work. See working paper HERE, plus more detailed info below.
NEW: Hourly position available ASAP, to help with coding for an upcoming lab experiment. Dereck Barr-Pulliam, Assistant Professor in Accounting & Information Systems, is looking for someone to code in z-tree (or in an alternative program-- o-tree, etc) an updated version of a prior experiment. Earlier experiment was previously coded in z-tree (so there are existing files you could use as a starting point). Please email Dereck for more details.
The BRITE Lab is looking to hire an Assistant Lab Manager/PA for Spring 2018. View the PA Position Announcement for more details.
REMINDER - Winter deadline 1/12/18 :2017-2018 BRITE Lab Grant Program. NEW this year, we will consider grant proposals for experimental projects that are not necessarily conducted in the physical BRITE Lab space.
The Center for Decision Research (CDR) at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business is offering researchers an opportunity to collect data for studies of human behavior in their two laboratories – one on the UChicago campus, and the other in downtown Chicago. View their Call for Studiesfor more details.
Shane received a 2016-2017 BRITE Lab research grant to support this work. He is a PhD candidate in Economics here at UW-Madison.
This Week in the Lab 10/26/17
Dee Warmath, Assistant Professor in the Department of Consumer Science, Andrew Winterstein, Program Director for the Athletic Training Education Program, and a team of MBA students are running an ongoing study in the lab.
The study will compare the effectiveness of the NCAA's concussion fact sheet to two other approaches in promoting awareness of concussion symptoms.
We will use this space each week in the news blast for Justin to share new ideas he thinks may be of interest for our behavioral & experimental community. If you ever have ideas for topics, please share your ideas with Justin.
This Week's BRITE Idea:
For this week's BRITE ideas we want to highlight a new journal dedicated to replication studies in microeconomics. The link HERE gives all the details. While it is not entirely clear how much focus they will have on experimental findings, as opposed to analysis of other existing data sets, Justin's read is that there will be at least some scope for studies focused on careful replications in experimental lab studies. Importantly, that also seems to include studies that get at the same idea as previously published work but are testing robustness in different populations, etc...
