The California State University East Bay in the San Francisco Bay Area seeks applications for a full-time position of post doctoral researcher

The California State University East Bay in the San Francisco Bay Area seeks applications for a full-time position of post doctoral researcher to enhance the efforts of the research team in Years 4-5 of a five-year $12 million National Science Foundation grant. This is a 2-year grant funded position. The S.F. Bay Integrated Middle School Science Partnership (IMSS) was funded to develop and study a comprehensive teacher professional development model to transform science teaching and learning in under-performing middle schools serving predominately low-income, underrepresented minority students in 8 districts that rim the San Francisco Bay.

IMSS focuses on several areas of research including lesson study, science professional development and its impact on student achievement, and development of partnerships between K-12 educational institutions and institutions of higher education to sustain this effort beyond the term of the grant. A mixed methods research design is used to answer the the following over-arching research questions:

RQ 1: What is the impact of IMSS Intervention (i.e., core features of IMSS professional development and teachers’ and students’ outcomes, including lesson study)?
RQ 2: What is the Impact of IMSS Interventions (i.e., middle school teachers' and students' understanding and implementation of science knowledge, skills, and practices)?
RQ 3: What is the impact of single and multi-level IMSS intervention partnerships in the San Francisco Bay Area (e.g. district, university, school, and classroom)?
