The Graduate School of Education (GSE) at the University at Buffalo (UB) is seeking to hire a Postdoctoral Scholar for the UB Teacher Residency Program (UBTR). The Graduate School of Education is committed to fostering an equitable, diverse, just and inclusive environment. We seek individuals who have a demonstrated history of community-based advocacy and engagement in efforts to achieve equity, inclusivity and justice. As an extension of this commitment, the UB Teacher Residency program offers an accelerated, innovative, one-year initial teacher certification program for individuals who are committed to transformational teaching in public schools in Buffalo and WNY.
The postdoctoral scholar duties will include but not limited to:
Working collaboratively with the Director, Assistant Directors, university faculty, and partner districts in conducting quantitative and mixed-methods research focused on pre-service teacher development as well as post-graduation student-level outcomes in classrooms led by program graduates. We seek to understand the impact of program pathways on pre-service teacher development, student-level outcomes (academic, attendance, disciplinary referrals, etc.) in classrooms led by early career teachers and program mentors, and school-level metrics. Additional research questions are organized around understanding the impact of teacher demographics on student-level outcomes in P12 classrooms.
Participate in design, data collection (or coordination with district partners to gather existing data), analysis, and publication of findings.
Support the preparation of grant reports.
