The Decision Lab: Strategy Consultant

LINKEDIN ONLY APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED PLEASE READ APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS AT THE END OF THE JOB DESCRIPTION Please note that we are only considering applicants from Canada and the USA little bit about usThe Decision Lab is a socially-conscious applied research firm.

We provide consulting services to some of the largest organizations in the world, carry out research in priority areas and run one of the largest publications in applied behavioral science.

In the past, we have helped organizations such as the Gates Foundation, Capital One and the World Bank solve some of their thorniest problems using scientific thinking.Why this role is important for TDLWe started The Decision Lab because we saw a fundamental gap between behavioral science theory and application.

The Consultant role is at the front line of bridging this gap.

This means that we look for bright, capable and curious candidates with a strong grasp of behavioral science concepts (from the point of view of behavioral economics, psychology, neuroscience, sociology, etc.) who have a thirst for translating evidence (be it desk research, experiments or analytics) into practical and valuable solutions and content for private clients or public consumption.Why this role is great for youThe Decision Lab is a place where you can learn to use evidence-based approaches to solve diverse & complex challenges.

Youwill work alongside intelligent & free-thinking colleagues who lead with optimism, pragmatism and empathy.

Rather than reusing the same behavior change frameworks, TDL develops custom solutions – this means that in addition to being evidence-based, your role will be fundamentally creative and you will have the opportunity to evolve and express your thinking in the work you do.

Our team members help and empower each other and we have a rich set of tools and frameworks that you will be exposed to, but you will ultimately be responsible for your work – past hires tell us they are surprised to what extent they are able to take intellectual ownership of the projects they work on.What you’ll be working onPerforming desk research, data analysis and stakeholder interviews to understand and document the project contextUncovering and challenging client assumptions, intuitions and prior knowledgeFinding and synthesizing relevant research across behavioral science-related fieldsLeveraging established frameworks to better understand the precursors of the targeted behaviorAdapting proprietary and third-party data gathering instruments to uncover barriers associated with these precursorsConducting randomly controlled trials in both laboratory and field settingsGenerating hypotheses and validating them through targeted fieldworkAnalyzing and synthesizing qualitative and quantitative findings to answer core questionsPrioritizing findings and distilling key insights by collaborating with other consultants and directors to produce client-facing deliverablesPresenting findings to internal and client stakeholder groupsProducing reports that highlight key insights in user-friendly waysParticipating in project pitches, guiding Associates and others in performing the necessary researchCollaborating with the content team to support publication effortsWhat we are looking forWe are looking for a candidate with professional experience in management consulting, behavioral science or psychology, or an MSc.
