Applied Ethics and Morality Research Group

We are hiring a postdoctoral fellow. Check the details here!

In 2021, a research group unique in its interdisciplinary approach to study dis/honesty in organizations was established at the Faculty of Business Administration, Prague University of Business and Economics. The group includes scholars working in the fields of business ethics, moral psychology, and experimental economics (see our publications). The group uses an in-house laboratory and has a large database of participants.

In addition to research, the group holds regular research seminars and starts to work on the transfer of the-state-of-the-art findings to the business, government and non-profit sectors, and media.
