This is an exciting opportunity for scientists to apply their research skills to real-world challenges, help advance the field of behavioral science,lead client projects, and ultimately serve as advocates and representatives for behavioral insights and scientific methods.
Who You Are
We welcome candidates who have a passion for empirical behavioural research, are analytical problem solvers, and are driven by curiosity and continuous learning in a very dynamic team environment.
What You Will Do
Our Practice team is divided up into teams that represent the phases of the BEworks Method. These teams are Discovery & Behavioral Diagnostics, Ideation & Prototyping, and Experimentation & Choice Architecture. As an Associate, you will be placed into one of these teams and spend a yeardeveloping phase-specific knowledge and skills.Every day is different depending on the project and objectives of your phase team, but you can expect to support (and eventually lead) management consulting projects through:
Client Discovery: meetings with clients to understand their challenges, evaluating data, uncovering client assumptions, understanding their knowledge, intuition, and priors; auditing their experimental capability
Research/Behavioral Diagnostics: gathering, analyzing, and synthesizing information and existing scientific research, including insights drawn from BEworks’ proprietary IP database
Ideation: generating solutions for client challenges based on scientific literature, BEworks proprietary research, and through leading and participating in team think-tanks and prototyping sessions
Experimentation:supporting the design and building of RCTs of rigorous quality and exceptionally high standards using combinations of online and field methods (peer review and academic advisors provide guidance to ensure the robustness of designs and analyses)
Choice Architecture: delivering presentations to clients and at scientific conferences, speaking to the media, and writing for academic journals and trade press
You’ll be part of an experienced team of passionate scientists whose everyday work contributes to making a real-world impact through scientific thinking and rigour. As an Associate at BEworks, you will be led by a highly experienced practitioner who will provide you with mentoring and you will work within a highly collaborative environment that promotes curiosity and learning.
