The Teaching and Learning Collaborative (TLC) at Wake Forest University (WFU) is accepting applications for a postdoctoral research associate to expand our capacity for internal program evaluation, institution-level research, and the scholarship of teaching and learning.
WFU is committed to evidence-informed decision making as we advance our vision of exceptional teaching within a dynamic, inclusive academic community. In this context, the TLC is an emerging hub of support for faculty and administrators exploring the effectiveness of interventions designed to support teaching and learning on campus.
As we build our resources in this domain, we seek a recent PhD with expertise in research design and data analysis in the social sciences. The successful candidate will take the lead in designing and implementing a plan to evaluate the effectiveness of TLC programming, collaborate with institutional partners working to evaluate their own initiatives, and support faculty who want to systematically investigate the impact of classroom interventions on student learning.
The appointment to this position comes during an exciting time of growth and transformation for the TLC, including multiple recent hires, new collaborations with allied offices across the institution, and a beautiful new space in the Z Smith Reynolds Library in the center of campus.
This is a one-year position, renewable for a second year. It includes a full benefits package from WFU, as well as funds for professional development and travel. The associate will be mentored by a team of leaders from across the institution and will have the opportunity to develop the skills and experience necessary to pursue a variety of leadership positions in higher education. Review of applications will begin on November 26th, 2018 and continue until the position is filled. The successful applicant will begin no later than July 1, 2019, but start date is negotiable.
