Postdoctoral Research Associates

We are looking for highly motivated and creative individuals who are interested in pursuing chemistry education research. These Research Associate positions are renewable annually, contingent upon funding and/or satisfactory performance. While Research Associates are expected to work collaboratively with the team on projects related to language and learning chemistry, equity in the chemistry classroom, inorganic chemistry education, and/or student engagement with feedback, specific research objectives and project management duties will be negotiated with each Associate.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. degree in chemistry, chemistry education research, learning sciences, or similar disciplines. Candidates with expertise in eye-tracking methodology, qualitative research methods, or spatial cognition are particularly encouraged to apply. Strong communication, organizational, and problem-solving skills; an ability to work productively in a collaborative environment; and a willingness to mentor junior members of a nascent academic research group are essential.

Applications should consist of a single .pdf file that includes: (1) a cover letter (1-2 pages) that highlights past research accomplishments and how this postdoctoral training experience will align with future research goals; (2) a curriculum vitae; and (3) names and email addresses of three references. Applications may be submitted directly to sam.pazicni@chem.wisc.edu. Review of application materials will begin immediately, and applications will be considered until positions are filled.
