> Florida International University’s Department of Teaching & Learning in the College of Arts, Sciences and Education invites applications for the position of Assistant/Associate Professor of Science Education. FIU has a close relationship with Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS), the fourth largest school district in the nation, providing the largest number of new teachers to the district with 35% of M-DCPS teachers already possessing an FIU degree. Thus, candidates must demonstrate strong ability in developing future science teachers as well as working with in-service science teachers. Furthermore, advancing STEM education is a core value across FIU, with science education research and evidence-based practice at the forefront of that commitment. As such, candidates must show a strong research background and will be expected to establish/maintain a strong research program (external funding, peer-reviewed scholarly work, national/international collaborations, mentoring of undergraduate/graduate researchers). The successful candidate will also be required to provide service to their department, college, and/or university.
> Required background includes:
> • Earned doctorate in science education or in a related field with expertise in science education research
> • Scholarly activity (grant funding, publications, etc.) commensurate with experience
> • Science teaching experience with preference given to those with at least 2 years teaching experience at the elementary and/or secondary level
> • Strong leadership and communication skills
> Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply to Job Opening ID 512486 at facultycareers.fiu.edu and attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, and statement of research goals as a single pdf file. Candidates will be requested to provide names and contact information for at least three (3) references who will be contacted as determined by the search committee. To receive full consideration, applications and required materials should be received by December 11, 2017. Review will continue until the position is filled.
