Welcome to the Recruitment Site for the Centre for Experimental Social Sciences Nuffield - FLAME University

This is the recruitment website for Centre for Experimental Social Sciences (CESS) Nuffield – FLAME University.

CESS Nuffield – FLAME University is an inter-disciplinary research Centre at FLAME University in Pune, India engaged in experimental work in the social sciences. At CESS Nuffield – FLAME University we use games in which we study human subjects engaged in decision-making tasks.

On this site you can register to participate in games in our Centre. Participants in our games receive payment for their time and effort. Payments usually depend on your decisions during the session, and average payments are typically around Rs.300/hour plus a Rs.100 show-up fee. Our games do not typically involve anything more than making decisions at a computer. If we run a session that involves something else, or has a different payment method, we will include such details in the advertisements for that particular session.

In order to participate, you first need to subscribe to the participants’ database via this web site (click on "Register for lab experiments" in the menu on the left side). Every now and then you will receive a message inviting you for a specific game session. At that moment you can decide whether you want to participate in a specific game session (see Rules).

On the left column you can find information about upcoming sessions (Calendar), read some common rules applying to all sessions and our privacy policy, as well as learn more about experimental social sciences and how to register (FAQ).
