Employment Type: Research Faculty
Schedule: Full Time
Posting Close Date:
The Institute of Cognitive Science at the University of Colorado Boulder anticipates hiring a full time Postdoc in educational data mining/learning analytics. The project focuses on improving educational outcomes for historically marginalized youth and involves research-practice partnerships (for example with Saga Education; https://www.sagaeducation.org/ ) where projects are co-designed, tested, and deployed in the field.
In this position, you will develop and apply computational techniques to analyze data from students' log files in conjunction with other signals (e.g., speech, facial expressions, learning artifacts) during small group human tutoring, intelligent tutoring, and collaborative problem solving. You will also assist with integrating computational models into educational technologies where their performance and impact can be assessed in the real-world.
For early career scholars, this position offers a unique training experience and unsurpassed publishing opportunities within multi-department and multi-institution grant-funded projects. You will be encouraged to develop advanced technical skills, conduct real-world impactful research, strengthen your research portfolio via publications, gain interdisciplinary experience by working with a diverse team, develop leadership skills, and gain expertise in co-authoring grant proposals. More experienced researchers will have the opportunity to hone their skills within a world-class research environment offering outstanding professional development options and an exceptional collaborative environment.
