The Research Institute for Experiential Learning Science (RIELS) at Northeastern University seeks applicants for a postdoctoral research associate position. RIELS (www.northeastern.edu/riels) uses methodological pluralism to take a holistic, multi-disciplinary, integrative approach to understanding the mechanisms behind the impact of experiential learning (XL) environments. This impact ranges from micro-level as XL influences individual student learning to macro-level as it affects and helps shape the future of the workforce. This research is achieved through a network of researchers including but not limited to psychologists, sociologists, neuroscientists, economists and network scientists, those who work directly with students and employers, and those stakeholders who are positioned in the workforce and government.
We are seeking a Postdoctoral fellow to work on a number of efforts related to development and implementation of research on experiential learning at Northeastern and our partner institutions. Research questions of interest to RIELS include, but are not limited to, the ways in which experiential learning environments affect student disciplinary learning, holistic development, motivational attitudes, development as self-directed learners, professional identity development, etc.
Candidates should have completed a doctoral degree in social science, learning science, science, engineering, math, STEM education, or equivalent. Successful applicants must provide evidence of conducting independent research (or potential for).
