The Meta-Research Innovation Center at Stanford (METRICS) is hiring post-docs for 2016/2017. The full announcement is available at http://metrics.stanford.edu/education/postdoctoral-fellowships. Feel free to contact me with any questions; I am currently a post-doc in this position.

METRICS is a research center within Stanford Medical School. It was set up to study the conditions under which the scientific process can be expected to generate accurate beliefs, for instance about the validity of evidence for the effect of interventions.

METRICS was founded by Stanford Professors Steve Goodman and John Ioannidis in 2014, after Givewell connected them with the Laura and John Arnold Foundation, who provided the initial funding.

I do appreciate the news. At the same time I would also appreciate if you would add a paragraph about your association with METRICS.
