Postdoctoral Researcher Position studying Youth-Focused Natural History Museum-led Citizen Science

The Center for Community and Citizen Science (CCS) is seeking an accomplished science education researcher to be the lead U.S. research coordinator for our LEARN CitSci Project (Learning and Environmental science Agency Research Network for Citizen Science), a large-scale international research collaboration of universities and natural history museums, which is one of five Science Learning + awards funded jointly by the National Science Foundation, Wellcome, and the UK Economic and Social Research Council.

The Post-Doctoral Researcher will join a team of museum practitioners and education researchers in California and the United Kingdom, all focused on how youth learn when engaged in citizen science led by natural history museums. The Post-Doctoral Researcher will also be an important member of the growing community of faculty, staff, and students that make up the Center for Community and Citizen Science at UC Davis, and will have the opportunity to play a key role in shaping the education research activities of the Center into the future.

The position is renewable annually with funding for approximately 3 years for the Youth-focused NHM-led Citizen Science project, with the possibility of extension pending further funding. The position will open immediately in May 2018, and will be supervised by PI of the LEARN CitSci project, Associate Professor and Faculty Director of the Center for CCS, PI Heidi Ballard.

The LEARN CitSci project [NSF Project title: “Youth learning in Public Participation in STEM Research opportunities (crowdsourcing and citizen science) facilitated by natural history museums”] is an international collaboration between experts from disciplines including environmental science, citizen science, museum education, environmental education, and learning analytics. One year into this 4-year project, this project builds on Ballard and team’s work on Youth-focused Community and Citizen Science (YCCS), and collaborative research on natural history museum-led citizen science.

The study employs observations, surveys, interviews, and learning analytics to explore three overarching questions about youth learning:
What is the nature of the learning environments and what activities do youth engage in when participating in NHM-led PPSR?
To what extent do youth develop three science learning outcomes (collectively environmental science agency), through participation in NHM-led citizen science programs? The three are: a) An understanding of the science content, b) identification of roles for themselves in the practice of science, and c) a sense of agency for taking actions using science?
What program features and settings in NHM-led PPSR foster these three science learning outcomes among youth?
Based on studies occurring at multiple NHMs in the US and the UK, the broader impact of this study includes providing research-based recommendations for NHM practitioners that will help make PPSR projects and learning science more accessible and productive for youth. This project is collaboration between education researchers at University of California, Davis and Open University (UK), and Oxford University (UK) and citizen science practitioners, educators, and environmental scientists at three NHMs in the US and UK: NHM London, California Academy of Sciences, and NHM of Los Angeles County.

Postdoctoral Position in Biology Education
The Biology Education Research Team at Florida International University (FIU) is recruiting postdoctoral fellows to join a dynamic group dedicated to improving and diversifying undergraduate biology education. Our research interests cover a wide range of biology education topics, including:
(1) social dynamics of small group work in college level active learning classrooms 
(2) the relationship of different sources of motivation on student undergraduate and career pathways
(3) the analysis of a scientific writing exercise and the skills it provides participants
(4) the use of annotated primary literature in a teaching and learning setting
The successful applicant will join a project investigating a novel method for engaging students in what it means to do research. We have recently completed a pilot study of a research module involving the use of primary scientific literature and student-author interviews. Taken together, the two phases of this module place students in a research mindset: first by having students work through the data and results of a research project, and then by engaging students in an authentic conversation about the research process with a member of the scientific community. By analyzing both quantitative and qualitative data we will identify the underlying mechanisms of the learning gains taking place through this novel research module. There are many additional questions surrounding this research tract that the successful applicant will be encouraged to pursue further as an independent research project.
The successful applicant will have opportunities to interact and collaborate with nine discipline-based education faculty across multiple STEM fields. The position requires either a PhD in biology with a demonstrated interest in education; science education; educational psychology; or other related fields. Candidates should also have familiarity with active learning pedagogies, experience with quasi-experimental study design, strong statistical analysis experience, and evidence of scholarly writing skills.
The appointment is for one year with possible renewal for a second contingent upon satisfactory performance. Review of applications will be on a rolling basis. Start date is flexible, but ideally the successful candidate would start by August 15th, 2018.
The position is a joint appointment between the Department of Biology and the STEM Transformation Institute. The STEM Transformation Institute is a multidisciplinary collaboration across the Colleges of Arts, Sciences & Education, and Engineering & Computing, for the research and development of effective educational practices that lead to substantial increases in the number of well-prepared STEM professionals, including teachers, graduating from FIU. FIU is a public, urban, minority-serving research institution serving over 55,000 students located in Miami, FL.
