Hi! You are receiving this email because you are signed up for the BRITE Lab mailing list. We are starting this as a weekly email that will give announcements, updates, and hopefully some interesting pieces of information related to behavioral and experimental research here at UW Madison. Please take a look at this first email, which includes a couple of new announcements, including a position listing for a 50% PA appointment with the BRITE Lab. If you would like to stop receiving these emails, there is an unsubscribe button at the bottom of this email. Also, please feel free to forward this on to interested parties. If interested in joining our mailing list, please send a blank email to the Lab Manager, Kathryn Carroll.

Announcements, Reminders, & Upcoming Events
The BRITE Lab is looking to hire an Assistant Lab Manager/PA for Spring 2018. View the PA Position Announcement for more details.
2017-2018 BRITE Lab Grant Program: Fall submission deadline approaching (due Oct.13th, 2017). 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.
Dur will also give an earlier public talk on Tues. 10/3 at the Madison Public Library, 3rd Floor, from 12:30-1:30 PM as part of the Behavioral Insights for Government (BIG) lecture series.
Dur is a leading behavioral economist, with special expertise on running field experiments on improving public services with behavioral science.
Those interested in meeting with Prof. Dur while he is here are encouraged to contact Justin Sydnor, Director of the BRITE Lab.
This Week in the Lab 9/25/17
Yun Shin Lee, Assistant Professor in the KAIST School of Business, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, is here collaborating withEnno Siemsen, Procter & Gamble Bascom Professor in the Wisconsin School of Business.
Lee and Siemsen are currently running two differentstudies in the lab examining profit margin and inventory planning decisions.
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:
The new focus on randomization inference for experimental findings. Take a look at this very niceblog post by Jason Kerwin from the University of Minnesota on the topic. His post explains how and why researchers are increasingly turning to randomization inference for calculating p-values and conducting tests of statistical significance from experiments. Very approachable and highly likely to be the way all of our experimental papers (whether lab or field experiments) will be reporting results before long. Here also is alinkto a new Stata journal article on implementation of the idea in Stata.
