This individual will primarily work on our evaluation of the MiSTEM Network project.

SAMPI collects quantitative and qualitative data from 16 regions across the state to help determine the impact of MiSTEM initiatives.
The post-graduate fellow will be involved in all aspects of the MiSTEM Network evaluation including communication with MiSTEM staff and collaborators, database management, data collection and analysis, literature reviews, and report writing. We are seeking applicants who have experience and/or interested evaluation, research, and project management in STEM education. Applicants must have a PhD in a relevant field (such as science education, DBER, evaluation, higher education, etc.).
The Post-Graduate Fellow will join SAMPI, an interdisciplinary unit housed within the Mallinson Institute for Science Education that conducts client-centered program evaluations, research, and professional consultations in STEM education. Supervised by SAMPI Director, Dr. Cody Williams, the Post-Graduate Fellow will play a critical role in implementing SAMPI’s evaluation of the MiSTEM Network.
