Job Type: Full-time
Salary: $27.96-$39.26 DOE
This position offers opportunities to provide intellectual leadership for the research components of CPM. We seek a colleague who is knowledgeable about mathematics as a conceptual domain, has demonstrated expertise in their area of mathematics education research, has developed accomplished classroom instructional practices, can support our employees and clients in learning from research (particularly on issues related to equity), is committed to anti-racist practices, and can forge relationships with schools to serve research purposes. The successful applicant will also have a passion for investigating mathematics teachers’ development of effective practices, with attention to the engagement of socially, culturally, racially, and economically diverse students, working with both research and practice (e.g., teachers, professional learning specialists, and curriculum writers) faculty in the area of mathematical thinking, learning, and teaching.
All research faculty members contribute to the department’s reputation as a place where high standards of theory, research, and practice are the norm. Due to the small size of our organization and research department, we have the opportunity to think critically about how our research influences the in-service teachers with whom CPM works, and ultimately the learning of their students. Department faculty members can collaborate with schools that have adopted CPM. CPM schools provide diverse settings for educational research.
