1. POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT: Department of Engineering Education at the University of Buffalo in the EPT Lab Postdoctoral Associate
The Department of Engineering Education (DEE) in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the University at Buffalo invites candidates to apply for the position of Postdoctoral Associate. The successful candidate will join the Engineering Problem Typology Lab (EPTL), focusing on research related to evidence-based pedagogy in supporting the professional formation of engineers. Work will span two areas of active research. The first area is reflected in the core idea of engineering problem typology (EPT) – the idea that engineers engage different types of problems in practice and that educational settings should provide experience with those different types of problems. The candidate will support research on the development and use of EPT as a framework to support design, facilitation, and reflection in problem-based learning environments. The second area considers the role of co-curriculars in the professional formation of engineers. Of particular interest is the apparent divergence between the value of co-curriculars as reflected in promotion by institutions, industry, and alumni and the perceived value as reflected in the level of student engagement in those opportunities. Three broad areas of study that stem from this issue include 1) student motivation and learning in co-curriculars, 2) their navigation and tradeoffs among curricular and co-curricular opportunities, and 3) institutional support for co-curriculars to open multiple pathways that promote engagement and persistence in engineering.
2. POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT: Department of Engineering Education at the University of Buffalo in the DAREtoCARE Lab Postdoctoral Associate
The Department of Engineering Education (DEE), in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the University at Buffalo invites candidates to apply for the position of Postdoctoral Associate. The successful candidate will work as a postdoctoral scholar under the supervision of Dr. Matilde Sánchez-Peña, at the Diversity Assessment Research in Engineering to Catalyze the Advancement of Respect and Equity (DAREtoCARE) Lab. The projects of the DAREtoCARE lab include: (1) cultures of health in higher education and their influence in student success, (2) institutional diversity and its assessment and scrutiny at different levels, and (3) Data Science Education in engineering, their relevant teaching strategies, and the exploration of the role of data science in students’ development of social responsibility.
3. POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT: UC San Diego – NSF AGEP Hiring Interventions for Representation and Equity (HIRE) Alliance Postdoc Position
A postdoctoral position is available with Professor Stanley Lo in the Division of Biological Sciences at University of California San Diego as part of the Hiring Interventions for Representation and Equity (HIRE) Alliance project funded by the National Science Foundation (HRD-2113355). We are using design-based research to develop, implement, self-study, and evaluate a model to advance equitable hiring of teaching-focused faculty in STEM. Specifically, the position will collaborate with social science researchers, professional evaluators, and faculty fellows in the Alliance to examine how departmental and institutional factors may support or prevent the implementation of equitable faculty hiring practices.
How to apply
Interested applicants should send a single PDF file with a cover letter summarizing their relevant experiences to the position and describing their research interests and career plans, a curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information of three references to Stanley Lo (firstname.lastname@example.org).
