About the Project

Expressions of interest are invited on any topics related to either auditory cognition and working memory or to human factors as they relate to energy conservation and climate change. Auditory cognition includes such topics as auditory attention, memory, and imagination, earworms and music psychology (including music and autism) and aspects of working memory (broadly defined) and metacognition which relate to auditory cognition (e.g., awareness of distraction and conscious strategies employed to counter distraction). Human factors in energy consumption and conservation includes many aspects of "green psychology" and cognitive enginnering, "nudging" and other psychological approaches to combatting climate change. Preference will be given to candidates who are able to demonstrate an aptitude for experimental studies and the good understanding of statistical analysis needed to produce reliable and useful work that might make a difference in these areas.
