Position Overview

We are seeking a suitable candidate for a postdoctoral fellow for a three years fixed term position, who will be a contributing team member in the Developing Mathematical Inquiry Communities (DMIC) project.
The DMIC project uses a model of ambitious mathematics teaching founded in equity and social justice, which incorporates an advanced form of complex instruction. The focus of research projects has been on developing teacher expertise, culturally sustaining, task design, pedagogical leadership, what it takes to develop in-class mentoring expertise, and conditions for sustainability and ongoing improvement. This approach drives the kind of productive collaboration that is critical for accelerated achievement in mathematics’ classrooms and in communities of learning. The successful candidate will need to engage with the extensive data gathered over the past years as well as collaborate in establishing new research foci around this programme.

Our ideal candidate will have or be about to complete a PhD in Education or a related discipline.
You will be keen to publish our DMIC research collaboratively with other members of the team.

The salary will depend on experience – appointment will be for a term of three years.
When submitting your application, you need to include a full CV, cover letter and the names of at least three referees. 

Enquiries about this position should be addressed to the project leaders Professor Jodie Hunter j.h[email protected] and Dr Generosa Leach [email protected]

Applicants will be required to comply with the requirements of the Vulnerable Children Act 2014 and the Vulnerable Children (Requirements for Safety Checks of Children’s Workers) Regulations 2015.
