We are looking for an excellent researcher to help us launch AXLab, an experimental lab to de-risk innovations before they reach the live lab stage. For any innovation to be tested, AXLab will create the relevant lab simulation of the Amazon context (our website, Seller Central, etc.) Using human participants, drawn both from university pools and from a curated panel of Amazon stakeholders, our lab simulation will allow us to build safe testbeds for innovation. This lab-based method is grounded in game theory and experimental economics. It has a proven track record for complex innovations.
Successful candidates will be detail-oriented, organized, and responsible. They will be eager to learn how to design and implement sophisticated experiments. Some knowledge of econometrics, as well as basic familiarity with experimental methods are required.
This is a full-time position at 40 hours per week, with compensation being awarded on an hourly basis. You will learn how to design and implement relevant experiments, collaborating with economists, scientists, and product managers. These skills will translate well into writing applied chapters in your dissertation and provide you with work experience that may help you with placement.
