Visit the Center for Science Teaching and Learning
The Center invites applications for visiting scholar positions. This opportunity provides a platform for scholars to conduct cutting-edge research in STEM education while working closely with educators and students at the K-12 and post-secondary levels. The Center’s mission is to advance the fields of STEM education through collaboration, innovation, and impact. Visiting scholars will have the chance to design and implement research projects that address the most pressing issues in STEM education and contribute to the development of effective teaching practices.
Visiting Scholars are non-compensated faculty members from another institution who spend a limited period at NAU for purposes of collaboration or research. The request for an appointment is reviewed by the faculty of the Center and recommended by the Co-Director to the Dean who recommends to the Provost. Since the visiting scholar appointment is a non-compensated position, a visiting scholar faculty member must be employed at their home institution. Visiting scholars are appointed for a maximum of one year.
Benefits/Privileges: Visiting Scholars are entitled to the following optional services that must be initiated by the faculty member after receiving a letter of appointment from the Provost.
