The Center for Science Teaching and Learning (CSTL) and the Department of STEM Education (DSE) at Northern Arizona University (NAU) invite applications for a scholar of higher education at the rank of assistant research professor beginning August 2023.
The CSTL is committed to strategically increasing its capacity to provide local and national leadership in STEM education through advanced research and scholarly activities. As a recently designated Hispanic-serving institution (HSI), NAU seeks a scholar with background and scholarly interest in improving the quality of STEM education to increase Latina/o/x student success in postsecondary institutions. Specific research areas are otherwise open to scholars who study undergraduate students, graduate training, organizations, faculty, and related topics. Our Center values interdisciplinary collaborations and this position is open to scholars coming from higher education, science education, mathematics education, or related fields.
This is a non-tenure track faculty position with primary responsibilities in research and does not include teaching or service obligations. The person in this role is expected to obtain external funding through grants and contracts for support of their research programs. The position is fully funded for the first two years, and the person in this role is expected to be self-funded by their third year in the position. The successful scholar’s research program can be broadly conceived within STEM education. Successful candidates will have a research focus centering Latina/o/x communities (students, faculty, etc.) and critical epistemologies. Responsibilities include grant writing and management, production of high-impact publications, and collaboration with CSTL faculty and staff. Candidates successful in this position can earn promotion to the associate and full professor levels, based on research productivity.
