The Learning Analytics and Behavioral Sciences (LAMBS) lab in the Department of Psychology at the University of Notre Dame invites applications for a full-time postdoctoral researcher position. The initial appointment is for one year, with the possibility of renewal for an additional year based on satisfactory performance. The successful candidates would join a research team that is very experienced in development of computer-based student assessment systems, and statistical modeling of student learning data. The postdoctoral researcher will play a central role in connecting non-cognitive domains of student learning, most notably student engagement and identity, with student learning. Examples of target areas for scholarship include math education, motivation, student engagement, and identity.
Duties: Mentor graduate and undergraduate students and oversee data collection and processing; participate in data analysis that includes traditional scale survey responses of non-cognitive domains as well as interaction data between student and the assessment platform (a.k.a. process data); work with high school statistics teachers to design post-assessment feedback to students; contribute to manuscript preparation, grant-related reporting activities, and other dissemination efforts.
To be certain of full consideration, applications must be received by June 30, 2022, but review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
