Virginia Tech is a public land-grant university, committed to teaching and learning, research, and outreach to the Commonwealth of Virginia, the nation, and the world. Building on its motto of Ut Prosim (that I may serve), Virginia Tech is dedicated to InclusiveVT—serving in the spirit of community, diversity, and excellence. We seek candidates who adopt and practice the Principles of Community, which are fundamental to our on-going efforts to increase access and inclusion, and to create a community that nurtures learning and growth for all of its members. Virginia Tech actively seeks a broad spectrum of candidates to join our community in preparing leaders for the world.
Researchers in the Department of Engineering Education at Virginia Tech seek to hire postdoctoral research associates to work on projects funded by the National Science Foundation. Projects focus on a range of STEM contexts across a broad continuum of STEM learners—from elementary school to undergraduate to graduate school. The postdoctoral associates will assist with data collection and analysis (e.g., developing and analyzing surveys, conducting interviews with students and administrators, working with archival quantitative data), dissemination (e.g., helping co-author journal articles, present at academic conferences, plan workshops for practitioners), and project management (e.g., assist with data management processes, coordinate across project stakeholders with the PI's). Specific questions may be directed to Dr. David Knight (email@example.com) or Dr. Walter Lee (firstname.lastname@example.org).
