Job description The Vernon Smith Experimental Economics Laboratory at Purdue University seeks programmers who are interested in building websites that consist of simple interactive games. You can work on particular projects that suit your skill set and your availability. Most projects involve Python—we use the Otree framework (similar to Django). All projects use Javascript (Jquery), CSS (Bootstrap), and HTML. On rare occasion PHP, SQL, and UNIX/Linux experience is useful. This job will give you exposure on how social scientists employ experimental methodology for scientific discovery. These methodological skills can be used in a variety of business or scientific applications. For example, such experimental methodology can be used to test a particular business marketing plan, a specific theory in social psychology, or some facet of the rationality of investors. Your direct contribution Help code a web-based game. You would program most games in Python, Javascript, CSS, and HTML. You would use the Otree framework for building web-based games in Python and the Jquery libraries for Javascript/DOM work. You may also help run the resultant web application on the cloud. Requirements The ideal candidate will be experienced with the above technologies. We seek someone who is highly motivated and able to solve problems independently. The preferred candidate will have an interest in experimental economics, human behavior, psychology, or adjacent fields, although this is not necessary. Application instructions Please summarize your interest (a short paragraph should suffice). Then, in a list format, enumerate your experience with each of these technologies (you are not expected to have experience with them all): • Python • Django • Javascript • Jquery • CSS • HTML • PHP • SQL Finally, please include a resume or CV.
