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.

The Research in Engineering Education Network (REEN) is a great place to start — see our website at You can find out about all journals in the field of engineering education there, for instance. You can also join our ongoing discussions on our LinkedIn page or follow our Twitter feed @BoardREEN.

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.

Often the most innovative research comes from those just starting their careers. As such, I’m delighted that QSR International is once again supporting the next generation of qualitative research innovation! We recognize that early career researchers often find it difficult to access research grants as they have to compete with established scholars. This is why QSR has established this grant just for those starting out on their research careers.

The Grant will allow for $25,000 USD in funding over two years to an Early Career Researcher with a project that shows promise and contribution to knowledge.

The grant is open to all Early Career Researchers world-wide.

Dear colleague,

We are happy to announce the possibility to contribute to a Special Issue “Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in STEM for a Sustainable Future”, edited by Sustainability, an open access journal by MDPI.
There is evidence that many key performance indicators of academic and non-academic organizations related to the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields are strongly determined by the diversity of the workforce in these organisations.  This points to a need to ensure that increasing diversity becomes a key goal for both STEM educators and STEM industry. Evidence suggests that the number of women resigning from technological job positions remains unacceptably high. For example, in western countries, only 20% or less of graduating engineers are female, and often fewer than 10% are part of the engineering workforce.  To increase diversity, equality, and inclusion in STEM education, many different approaches can be implemented at different levels and to different target groups.
This Special Issue aims to address research mainly related to:

  • Theoretical insight into the reasons for this imbalance;
  • Empirical evidence, experimental approaches, and best practices of recruitment and retention in STEM education;
  • Ideas and policy to support gender balance careers in a STEM context.

You can find practical information at the link
Author BenefitsOpen Access: free for readers, with article processing charges (APC) paid by authors or their institutions. Some benefits for articles rated best by the Editorial Board and the Editorial Office can be partially discounted.

High visibility: indexed by the Science Citation Index Expanded and Social Sciences Citation Index (Web of Science), as well as Scopus and other databases.
Rapid Publication: manuscripts are peer-reviewed and a first decision provided to authors approximately 14.7 days after submission; acceptance to publication is undertaken in 2.9 days (median values for papers published in this journal in the second half of 2020).
