EER Jobs & Opportunities

If you want to get more involved with engineering education research (EER), I recommend consulting the following sites. I’ve created this page for people who would like to either do research or be employed in the field of EER.

You can find out about all journals in the field of engineering education on a webpage recently launched by REEN.

Below are additional resources with all sorts of EER jobs, grants, fellowship, and funding calls.

Below, I’m also sharing notifications I receive about EER job postings, Ph.D. fellowships, and upcoming conferences that I learn about via emails or conferences.

We seek reviewers with experience in engineering education research who are available and interested in serving in this vital role for our community. General parameters for reviewers: you will review ~10 proposals, and NSF will pay you for your time (currently $480 for panel days, $280 for travel days, plus appropriate transportation costs).

Please complete our panelist availability survey (5 minutes to complete) by January 21, 2020, so that we can down-select to a highly-qualified and diverse group of reviewers for each of these panels.

Contact Edward Berger, Program Director, National Science Foundation – eberger@nsf.gov   for more information.

 

  1. NSF ANNOUNCEMENT:  New EDSE program director at NSF

Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to announce that Dr. Kathryn Jablokow has accepted the position of program director for the Engineering Design and Systems Engineering program within CMMI at NSF.  Dr. Jablokow, a professor at Penn State, brings a breadth of expertise and experiences to the program that will serve the community well.  Two of her goals are to broaden the scope of the EDSE program’s research portfolio and grow the PI community.  She will begin the position full-time this summer.  In the interim, she is working part-time as an expert for the program.  Please direct your EDSE program questions to her at edse@nsf.gov and realize that responses may take a few days during the winter and spring months.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Andy Dong for serving in an expert role for the EDSE program over much of the last year as we searched for a program director.  As a member of this research community myself, I do want to thank you for your patience as we navigated a longer than normal search process to fill this role.  I look forward to working with Dr. Jablokow and am excited for the EDSE program’s future.

Best regards,

Rob Stone

Dear ERM members,

Happy December!  We woke up to a couple of inches of snow here in central Pennsylvania.  I’m not sure I’m quite ready for winter, but it’s definitely on its way here in the northeast!

Thank you to those members who voted for the changes to the bylaws.  I wanted to share the results with you here.

  • For the first vote, which was to change the bylaws to avoid gender binary language, we had 169 members vote.  Of these, 162 voted for this change, 5 voted against the change, and 2 abstained.
  • For the second vote, which was to change the process on how dues amounts could be changed, we had 170 members vote.  Of these 149 voted for this change, 15 voted against the change, and 6 abstained.

Based on these numbers, both changes to the bylaws have been passed. However, I did want to thank those members who e-mailed me with concerns about the proposed changes.  I will be sharing this feedback with the executive board to determine next actions.

I hope all of you in the United States had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Sarah

  1. POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT: Postdoctoral Position at University of Colorado Boulder

Apply for a full-time postdoctoral level position to lead an innovative approach to teaching evaluation across a variety of departments at the University of Colorado Boulder. The ideal candidate will have some engineering or engineering education experience, but we are open to those with other STEM discipline/education experience. The Teaching Quality Framework project takes a systematic and research-based approach to transformation in education, particularly focusing on the deployment of scholarly evaluation tools and processes we use in teaching evaluation.  It is part of a broader effort that seeks to improve undergraduate education at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU), through collective learning and cultural change at the departmental and institutional levels, that is being coordinated through our Center for STEM Learning (CSL). Sixteen departments / units across three colleges are currently engaged in this process and the project is expanding to work with all departments in the College of Engineering & Applied Science (CEAS). This position will largely be focused on programmatic efforts (e.g., facilitating working groups within CEAS departments), with some opportunities for dissemination through research and publication.
