Indiana University Bloomington
The School of Education’s new Learning Sciences Program was created through a Chancellor’s initiative to expand Indiana University’s already world class programs in Cognitive Science, Informatics, and Education. The Learning Sciences Program, housed in the School of Education, expects to fill five new positions over the next four years. Candidates are expected to have interests in both research and teaching. Rank, teaching responsibilities, and specific research specializations are open – although at the present time, we are looking for outstanding assistant or associate professors, and especially for those with expertise in mathematics or science learning. Existing faculty in the program already have strong working relationships not only with IU’s programs in Cognitive Science and Informatics but also with fields ranging from technology education and assessment to other learning-related programs inside and outside the School of Education. Our programs and projects typically integrate multiple practical and theoretical perspectives, and they often involve the design of innovative and effective learning environments - for individuals or groups, for children through adult, and for use inside or outside of schools.
Indiana University’s School of Education in Bloomington has over 100 faculty and awards over 900 baccalaureate, master’s and doctoral degrees each year making it a rich environment to impact teacher education as well as education beyond schools. Our facilities are state of the art with advanced networking environments. The campus itself has been rated one of the best wired in the nation. The IUB campus sits in the rolling hills of southern Indiana with forests and the largest lake in the state nearby. It is a culturally rich environment, featuring one of the nation’s premier music schools.
