We welcome applications from researchers within a large range of disciplines in the social, behavioral and life sciences: anthropology, evolutionary biology, economics, genetics, history, law, mathematics, neuroscience, philosophy, political science, psychology and sociology; however, motivated applications from outside these disciplines will be given full consideration. Successful applicants will have to demonstrate an interest in, and a commitment to, at least one of the other disciplines of IAST.

We seek candidates with a strong research background in their own discipline, but willing and able to develop research projects drawing on IAST’s substantial interdisciplinary resources, including particularly the proximity of strong groups in economics (Toulouse School of Economics, TSE).

We are open to a variety of research methods, including theory, field and laboratory experiments, observational field work, and the analysis of large secondary data sets.

All research interests relevant to the broad study of human behavior are welcome, but preference may be given to candidates whose research interests are complementary to those of existing IAST researchers (more information on
