The School of Engineering at the University of New Mexico under the direction of Dean Donna Riley, is seeking a research faculty member to work on topics involving undergraduate and graduate student pathways and success, including the impact of curriculum on student progression, culture of equity, inclusion, and belonging, and other factors impacting student outcomes. The research faculty member will collaborate on proposals and grant-funded projects related to institutional change, design and conduct experiments related to student success interventions, and the application of predictive analytics tools and frameworks to inform faculty, staff, administrator, and student decision-making.
The research faculty member will:
· Work closely with the UNM’s Institute of Design and Innovation (https://idi.unm.edu/) and other engineering and STEM education focused faculty members.
· Collect and analyze data using qualitative and quantitative methods, using independent judgment in the analysis and interpretation of data.
· Manage interactions and partnerships with professors, academic staff, professional scientists, engineers, and other stakeholders to gather data for research projects and cultivate change via implementation projects.
· Describe and communicate research findings in a variety of formats and presentations. Author/co-author papers, presentations, and reports with collaborators at UNM and other institutions.
· Contribute ideas for future grant proposals and assist in proposal writing in collaboration with UNM faculty and staff (and potentially develop solo-authored proposals as well)
· Contribute to building a collaborative team environment.
The initial appointment will be for one year and the position can be renewed based on performance and research productivity.
