We are looking for a talented post-doc to join us in the framework of the ANR research project REMOTAUDIT (auditors’ behavior in remote work). REMOTAUDIT is a joint project between ESSCA, IAE Lyon 3, and HEC Montréal, fully funded by the French research agency. It aims at answering one of the key questions raised by remote work: which levers, in terms of innovation, can we develop to achieve higher quality results in remote work as compared to on-site work? The REMOTAUDIT project tackles this issue by studying the audit field and using experimental methods. The final goal is to improve information systems, possibly through nudges, to maintain or increase the telecommuters’ quality of work.

Working closely with the rest of the research team, you will be expected to

  • Carry experimental research, using neurophysiological tools (Eye tracking, skin conductance, HRV).
  • Analyze the data resulting from these experiments.
  • Co-author academic papers in collaboration with the other researchers in the team. We are looking for applicants with a:
  • Ph.D. in Neuroscience with an interest in economics or management science, OR
  • Ph.D. in Economics or Management Science (accounting, finance…) with competencies regarding neurophysiological tools and statistics.

Applicants who are close to completing their Ph.D. will also be considered. The future post-doc should ideally demonstrate:

  • Mastery of neurophysiological tools (eye tracking, HRV, skin conductance)
  • Competences in Statistical analysis of experimental data.
  • Fluent in English, capacity to write academic papers in English.
  • Ability to work in collaboration with other researchers from the team.
  • Competences in French are not essential.
