We are advertising four postdoc-level positions related to studying, supporting, and/or enacting instructional change efforts in undergraduate STEM. The positions are associated with three new, NSF-funded projects: (1) Building Capacity: Creating Faculty-Student Communities for Culturally Relevant Institutional Change (2 positions); (2) Furthering the Work of Undergraduate STEM Transformation: Modeling Instructional Change Teams; and (3) Developing Faculty Resources of Evidence-Based Practices that Improve Learning and Equity in STEM. One of the positions will primarily focus on programmatic work and may involve synergistic research activities. The other three positions will primarily focus on research and will involve synergistic programmatic activities as appropriate.
Review of applications will begin on November 20, 2019; preferred start dates are between January 1 and May 1, 2020. Applications (cover letter, CV) should be sent to STEMEdPostdocs@txstate.edu.
If you are a current student at Texas State and interested in education research, please feel free to reach out to any of the faculty in our group. For undergraduate students, participation in the Learning Assistant program is typically the pre-/co-requisite to starting an education research project with us, along with availability and sufficient shared interest in a research topic among you and a faculty member. Undergraduate students interested in becoming teachers are also highly encouraged to check out the resources on the Physics Department website. For graduate students, you are encouraged to enroll in Pedagogy II (PHYS 4360), and to discuss your interests and potential plans with a faculty member in our group.
