The Graduate School of Education (GSE), University of California, Berkeley,

sciences with an emphasis on math, science, or technology education, as
related to cognitive development. The expected start date is July 1, 2018.
The successful candidate will join the cluster of GSE faculty who merge
cognitive, cultural, developmental, and social perspectives with practice
in studying cognition and learning in mathematics and science. Desirable
qualities for this position include a research program merging theory and
practice with an emphasis on student thinking and sense making. Applicants’
research contexts might include classrooms, homes, online activities, and
museums, and/or innovative practices that take advantage of contemporary
technologies. The successful applicant should be prepared to teach and
advise doctoral students specializing in either math, science, or
technology education, and to contribute to the GSE’s innovative program in
teacher education.

Faculty in the GSE also have the opportunity to teach in the School’s
popular undergraduate minor.

An applicant’s minimum basic qualification for consideration of this
position is a Ph.D. or equivalent, or the completion of all degree

program to be accomplished in the next 5 years; and/or conference
presentations or other forms of professional contributions indicative of
strong participation in the research community.

Preferred qualifications include experience in teaching courses related to
math, science, or technology education and in working with a diverse
student population. Applicants who conduct research with young children and
who could contribute to an emerging interest on campus with a program in
early childhood education are also encouraged to apply.

opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research, and
service. UC Berkeley is committed to addressing the family needs of
