Assistant Director-Psychological Science Accelerator

Aug 15, 2018


The Psychological Science Accelerator is looking for Assistant Directors to lead various committees, namely ethics, logistics, methodology and analysis, project management, data management, and funding. I was asked to share the application across my networks, as the PSA is trying to create as diverse a pool as possible, both regarding personal characteristics but also area/field of study/involvement. 

Here is the application form, along with information about each of the committees.


The Psychological Science Accelerator is a globally distributed network of psychological science laboratories (currently over 300), representing over 45 countries on all six populated continents, that coordinates data collection for democratically selected studies. Our mission is to accelerate the accumulation of reliable and generalizable evidence in psychological science, reducing the distance between truth about human behavior and mental processes and our current understanding. This challenge cannot be adequately met by a single researcher or small team. Instead, we attempt to meet this challenge with a distributed laboratory network that is ongoing (as opposed to time or task limited), diverse (both in terms of human subjects and participating researchers), and inclusive (we welcome ideas, contributions, study proposals, or other input from anyone in the field of psychology).
