New Postdoctoral Fellows for Networked Improvemet Studies
We are seeking two Postdoctoral Fellows to participate in complex, multidisciplinary projects related to supporting educational change in large systems through networks. There are opportunities to contribute to two projects:
- The first project involves the intersection of school networks and continuous improvement to support ELA outcomes in a network of urban secondary schools.
- The second project focuses on conceptualizing and measuring “network health” or the development of viable structures and operations in networks aimed at supporting school improvement.
Postdoctoral fellows would interact with large interdisciplinary teams, but would work most closely with Jennifer Russell and her Partners for Networked Improvement team from the Learning Research and Development Center at the University of Pittsburgh with the goal of building expertise and strong publications.
The positions could begin as early as January 2019 or as late as September 2019. Initial appointments can be for two years and have the possibility of extension for an additional year. We seek applicants with strong training in at least one of these areas: practical measurement, continuous improvement research models (e.g., networked improvement communities, rapid inquiry cycles), research practice-partnerships (e.g., DBIR), developmental evaluation, and/or social network analysis.
Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the positions are filled.
To apply to these positions, please send a cover letter, CV, and two representative publications to: Carmela Rizzo, firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions, please contact Jennifer Russell (email@example.com).
