Postdoctoral Positions

  • The University of Texas at Austin – Drs. María González-Howard and Cathery Yeh are seeking a postdoctoral candidate to take part in a 3.5-year curriculum and professional learning materials development project, carried out across many institutions. The project aims to create high quality materials aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards that will be freely available and locally adaptable for teaching grades K-5 Science. The Postdoctoral Researcher will support development and research work done across two teams within the project’s developers consortium – the Culturally and Linguistically Sustaining Teaching and Learning Team (i.e., The CLS Team, led by Dr. González-Howard), and the Mathematics Integration and Support Team (i.e., The Math Team, led by Dr. Yeh). (Review begins September 12, 2022)
  • University of Florida – We invite applications for a postdoctoral researcher in mathematics education to work with faculty and colleagues in the School of Teaching and Learning in the College of Education at the University of Florida (UF), Vanderbilt University, and the UF Lastinger Center. This postdoctoral researcher will join a collaborative community of scholars and educators committed to high-quality research, teaching, and service to the community. The successful candidate is expected to conduct scholarly activities and support the development of a strong research program. Successful applicants must be committed to working with diverse student and community populations. The applicants will participate in an NSF-funded DRK-12 project titled, Empowering students with choice through equitable and interactive mathematical modeling (EIM2).(Review begins August 29, 2022)
  • University of California, Irvine – Applicants are invited to apply for a full-time postdoctoral position in the School of Education at the University of California, Irvine to support a research-practice partnership project focused on teacher adaptive professional development (PD) in elementary mathematics. This is a full-time postdoctoral researcher position funded by the WT Grant Foundation, Reducing Inequalities program (PI: Rossella Santagata; Co-PI: Adriana Villavicencio). The study “Reducing Inequalities in Opportunities to Learn Mathematics through Adaptive Teacher Professional Development” will examine how different elementary school sites design and enact an adaptive PD model that integrates Cognitively Guided Instruction and asset-based, culturally responsive teaching to improve the mathematics learning opportunities of their Latinx students. The project will also examine the tensions and system-level barriers that characterize the work of the research-practice partnership and the Design-Based Implementation Research (DBIR) process, as well as how adaptive PD supports teacher learning and the mathematics learning opportunities of their Latinx students. Position start date is flexible between July 1, 2022 and January 2023, with the exact start date contingent on the availability of the applicant. This is a 1-year position with possibility of renewal for additional 1-2 years.
