Postdoctoral Associate-2

Cornell University embraces diversity and seeks candidates who will contribute to a climate that supports students, faculty and staff of all identities and backgrounds. We strongly encourage individuals from underrepresented and/or marginalized identities to apply.

Postdoctoral Position

Active Learning in Biological & Environmental Engineering

Position:        Postdoctoral Associate

Location :       Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853-5701 (https://bee.cals.cornell.edu/ )

Position Description and Responsibilities:

The Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering (BEE) invites applications for a postdoctoral position in Engineering Pedagogy, specifically implementing active learning strategies at the individual course and the curriculum level. The appointment is for one year, renewable for an additional year. The position is part of the Cornell’s Active Learning Initiative: https://provost.cornell.edu/leadership/vp-academic-innovation/active-learning-initiative/ ).

Goals of the Active Learning Initiative: I n this Active Learning Initiative (ALI), BEE will transform several courses in the biological engineering curriculum via an integrated, spiral approach that progressively builds students’ understanding of complex problem formulation. A core component of this ALI is ongoing documentation of the process and outcomes, continuously communicating with departmental colleagues to reduce the barrier to infusion of active learning throughout the curriculum and department. Initially, the ALI will transform 1) BEE 3500: Heat and Mass Transfer; and 2) BEE/MAE 4530: Computer-Aided Engineering.

Role of Postdoctoral Associate : The postdoc will work closely with the faculty instructor to design active learning strategies, implement these strategies through creating in-class activities, digital course content and assignments. For example, the postdoc will have the opportunity to develop digital simulations and problem-solving videos. The postdoc will help develop student assessments and feedback mechanisms to refine course material and strategies for future implementation. Eventually, the postdoc will be responsible for documenting and disseminating active learning strategies to the department faculty and assisting them in incorporating active learning into their courses.

The postdoc will work alongside another BEE postdoc and a cohort of Cornell ALI postdocs through the Cornell Center for Teaching Innovation. The project is expected to lead to conference presentations and/or archival journal articles in engineering education. To help maintain continuity with research, the candidate is expected to pursue a formal research program in the areas of computational mechanics and/or heat and mass transfer as a secondary activity.

Qualifications : A Ph.D. in an engineering discipline and demonstrated experience and success in the classroom are required. The candidate must have demonstrated interest in creating and/or applying active learning strategies and advancing engineering pedagogy. The candidate must have relevant background in at least two of the following areas for her/his research program: Solid mechanics, Transport phenomena, Computational modeling, and Multiphase transport in porous media.

Applications and Starting Date:  

The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Cornell University embraces diversity and seeks candidates who will contribute to a climate that supports students, faculty, and staff of all identities and backgrounds. We strongly encourage individuals from underrepresented and/or marginalized identities to apply.

Anticipated start date is as soon as possible. Applications including a CV, a statement of teaching experience and pedagogy development, research interests, and the names of at least three references should be submitted to the Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering via AJO Link(tbd) Applications will be reviewed starting July 1 2021 and will be accepted until this position is filled. statement of contribution to diversity, equity, and inclusion via Academic Jobs Online at the following link: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/XXXXX .
