Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I am pleased to share with you the attached announcement of a Postdoctoral
Fellowship opportunity sponsored by the Education Research Collaborative at
TERC in Cambridge, MA.  We invite applications for a two-year residential
research fellowship.  The fellowship program is focused broadly on
transformative research on teaching and learning that intentionally seeks
to expand formal and/or informal educational opportunities for children,
youth and adults from historically under-represented communities.  We are
particularly interested in work focused in the sciences, technology,
engineering, or mathematics (STEM), or cross-disciplinary studies (e.g.,
spanning the sciences, mathematics, arts, humanities, social sciences).

A major component of the fellowship program is to foster a scholarly
learning community in which Postdoctoral Fellows develop their research and
writing in a supportive environment, work directly with a mentor or mentor
team, and share their emerging work with the broader TERC community. They
also have opportunities to collaborate with ongoing R&D projects and
develop grant proposal and manuscript writing skills.

Many thanks in advance for distributing this announcement widely among your
students and within your professional networks.

All my best,


Beth Warren

Development and Evolution are both ... "processes of construction and re-
construction in which heterogeneous resources are contingently but more or
less reliably reassembled for each life cycle." [Oyama, Griffiths, and
Gray, 2001]
