    Science & Mathematics Researchers


    Background:
    BioVoyage Institute is developing and implementing
    Bioscience) education programs for the 21st Century
    learners. The programs are innovative; challenging;
    fulfilling; and enriching the lives of our present and
    future generation. Now, we seek your participation in
    furthering the development of K12 and university curricula.
    You maybe active or retired teachers, professors; doctoral
    or postdoctoral students.

    Job Description
    We have several upcoming and ongoing mathematics and
    Kindergarten thru high school science research projects.
    The projects support research that utilize cognitive
    science to develop and test innovative approaches intended
    to improve teaching and learning in authentic education
    settings. We are interested in the development of
    strategies and materials that involve students learning
    educationally meaningful or relevant components or units of
    academic content, such as would be covered in a chapter or
    multiple chapters addressing a topic or learning goal in a
    textbook. Likewise, the projects are designed to explore
    the cognitive processes underlying the acquisition of
    reading, writing, mathematics knowledge and skills, science
    knowledge and skills, or general study skills.

    The objective here is to gain a better understanding of
    which processes and skills are predictive of subsequent
    proficiency in reading, writing, mathematics, science, or
    study skills that would allow researchers to develop
    interventions (e.g., curricula or instructional approaches)
    that target these processes and ultimately result in
    improving academic achievement.

    Candidate Qualifications:
    Professor
    Postdoctoral
    PhD
