Postdoctoral Position in Education:  Assessment Using Virtual Environments in Middle School Science Classrooms

The College of Education at Temple University is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to join a team studying assessment using virtual environments in middle school science classrooms.  This one-year (with the potential for a second year) NSF-funded position is available starting January 2009 and is based jointly in the Curriculum, Instruction and Technology in Education Department and the Institute for Society and Schooling. The grant, SAVE Science, a DRK12-funded project, is for designing game-based assessments of standardized science curriculum used in local school districts to investigate the impact of context-based assessment and the potential for standardizing the old-fashioned "lab practical." The implementation sites are in large urban public school districts.

Experience in K-12 science education and expertise in science curriculum design are required.  Excellent organizational and record-keeping skills are essential.  The ideal candidate will also have experience in working on research teams and working with urban school children and teachers; an interest in integrating emerging technologies into the K-12 classroom is a plus. This position is perfect for a recent doctoral graduate or ABD student looking for a leadership position on a federally funded research project.  Duties will include collaborating with project investigators on multiple levels of this project from running team meetings, designing science curriculum and assessments, running a pilot study to analyzing data, writing publications, and making presentations. The selected candidate will be encouraged to develop her/his own research interests within the scope of the project.  Travel to national conferences to support professional development will be subsidized.
