On behalf of Dr. Molly Bolger from the University of Georgia:
I have a position open for a postdoctoral researcher for my NSF project. The project is focused on instructor reasoning in a science-practice based laboratory course. We have a large data set examining teaching assistants intentions and classroom actions in the context of an introductory biology lab course (AIM-Bio). We are hoping to recruit a postdoc with strong qualitative and/or quantitative research experience and also some experience working with or researching instructors. While the context is biology education, I think that someone with a background in chemistry education or science education could be a good fit. Ideally, we will recruit a researcher to join our large, vibrant Biology-Education community in-person at UGA. However, remote work may be an option if relocation is not an option for a candidate. Start date is flexible.
A link to the position with more details is below.
Review of applications will begin on March 4, but the position will remain open until filled.
The postdoctoral scholar will join an ongoing NSF-funded research project aimed at understanding how teaching assistants carry out science-practice based laboratory instruction. We are looking for a candidate ready to apply their qualitative and/or quantitative analysis skills to an existing large data set. The successful candidate will join a vibrant group of discipline-based education researchers at UGA, with significant opportunities to build a professional network. In addition to research responsibilities, the postdoctoral scholar will have the opportunity to meet with laboratory instructors across the country, in order to disseminate a previously developed professional development program for laboratory TAs. Preference will be given to candidates who can relocate to Athens, GA. The start date for the position is flexible. Fund are available for an immediate start, but the position start could be delayed until summer or early fall 2024.
Those interested can contact me directly with any questions (email@example.com).
