The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) requests applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow in Science Evaluation, pending final authorization for availability of funds.
This Fellow will assist in development and evaluation of a Quantitative Biology Concept Inventory (QBCI) to assess the impact of biological constructs and examples on student quantitative comprehension. The Fellow will have primary responsibility for all aspects of data collection, coordinating focus groups and obtaining professional review of QBCI. A successful applicant will have prior experience in evaluation of educational efforts in science, with a Ph.D. in Evaluation, Science Education, Mathematics Education, or a related field. Experience in interdisciplinary research, instrument development, statistical methodology, or undergraduate teaching will also be considered as positive factors in evaluation of candidates.
The Fellowship is for two years at an annual stipend of approximately $51,000. Applications received by July 10, 2015 will receive full consideration, though the position will remain open until filled. The position is available to start as early as September 1, 2015.
