Decision Sciences

 

 

Decision Sciences is an interdisciplinary field that draws on economics, machine learning, statistical decision theory, operations research, forecasting, behavioral decision theory and cognitive psychology. Broadly speaking, Decision Sciences at INSEAD addresses three fundamental and inter-related questions. First, how should a "rational" person make decisions? This question is at the heart of economics, and often serves as a baseline for evaluating human decision making. Second, how do people really make decisions? Recent research has explored the ways in which people are "boundedly rational," and utilize rules-of-thumb and shortcuts to formulate judgments and to choose among alternatives. Often these shortcuts do well, but equally often they lead to systematic biases and serious errors. Finally, given what we know about rational decision making and actual behavior, how can we help people, especially managers, improve their decision making? Decision researchers employ a variety of techniques to improve decision making, ranging from sharpening statistical intuition to quantitative decision analysis

Faculty Recruitment

 

The Decision Sciences (DSC) Area at INSEAD, a global business school with campuses in Abu Dhabi, France, and Singapore, invites outstanding applicants for a tenure-track or tenured faculty position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor at any of its campuses. The anticipated start date is September 1, 2020. 

The DSC Area focuses on a wide array of issues broadly related to individual, group, and organizational decision making, both from quantitative and behavioral perspectives. Our research ranges from the area of decision sciences, to machine learning and computer science, psychology, economics, operations research, neuroscience, finance, organizational behavior, pricing, social innovation, entrepreneurship, etc. We have a collegial environment that encourages interdisciplinary as well as industry-relevant impactful research.

We are interested in candidates that can further enrich, expand, and consolidate the diverse research portfolio of the group and the school. While priority is always given to quality over topic, we will consider candidates with strong training working in any domain of decision sciences. The ability to conduct rigorous research is essential and an interest in practical problems is desirable, though not necessary.

Candidates should hold a PhD or be at the dissertation completion stage of a doctoral program, have demonstrated solid skills in their respective areas, have strong studies/training, and have worked on top quality research projects in the past.  

The position entails the following responsibilities: research in areas of expertise and interests; supervision of doctoral candidates; teaching in INSEAD programs; and service to the school and the broader community. 

Applications should include a cover letter, a CV, research and possible teaching statements, copies of representative research papers, teaching evaluations if available, and three letters of recommendation. 

The deadline for applications is December 15, 2019. 

[For candidates attending INFORMS: Please try to submit at least an initial package by October 16, in order to meet with INSEAD faculty at the conference.]
