Full Text of JOE Listing:
Our team is devoted to developing behaviorally motivated applications and client propositions to promote better investment outcomes and financial satisfaction, both in individual and group settings. We conduct empirical analyses on behavioral aspects of investing, particularly on the role of financial personality (such as risk attitudes and overconfidence). The primary focus is tailored investment solutions which help mitigate likely biases and poor investment decisions within Wealth Management. However, we are currently expanding our scope to bring behavioural solutions across many businesses (retail investors, pension design, corporate clients, fund/portfolio managers, etc.).

Qualification:
- Masters or PhD in relevant field (e.g., behavioral economics, behavioral finance, experimental economics)
- Communication skills and the ability to pass on knowledge are essential.
- The New York role requires comfort with client-facing and commercial activities. We seek a self-starting, commercially aware individual capable of taking responsibility for driving behavioral concepts to practical application somewhat independently of, but consistent with, the global team, of which the bulk is based in London.
Application Instructions:
