College / University
The purpose of the two-year fellowship is to prepare early childhood education researchers to collaborate in and conduct high-quality, rigorous research that advances the knowledge base in ways that inform early childhood policy and practice. The fellow will become an integral team member on an IES-funded Early Learning Network project assessing learning environments and children’s early trajectories across the state of Nebraska, including urban and rural communities. Throughout the fellowship, the fellow will be involved in research investigating the implementation of early learning policies and programs, malleable factors associated with early achievement, and transitions from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 3. Training of fellows will occur in the context of a program that provides (a) mentorship in professional development, independent writing, and grant development; (b) immersion in large-scale, federally-funded early childhood interdisciplinary research; and (c) didactic research training in methodology and early childhood.
Qualified applicants will have obtained a doctoral degree in psychology, educational psychology, special education, or a related field by August 31, 2018. Applicants should maintain a basic understanding of research design and statistical analysis in the social and behavioral sciences, and evidence of research and scholarly potential. We are also interested in individuals with mixed-methods training and experience as well as an interest in pursuing this type of research.
The following application materials are required: (a) a cover letter describing professional research interests, research experience, methodological and statistical training, and professional development and research goals to be pursued during the fellowship; (b) a complete vita; and (c) two letters of recommendation (at least one from a faculty advisor or mentor). Application materials should be submitted by July 31, 2018 electronically to Dr. Susan Sheridan, Director of CYFS, firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions can be directed to Dr. Sheridan at (402) 472-6941.
Review of applications will begin no earlier than August 1, 2018 and will continue until a suitable candidate is hired.
