We are interested in colleagues who focus on STEM education research and delivery through the lenses of astronomy, astrophysics, and planetary science. The successful candidate will complement existing strengths in geoscience education research and expand the scope of SESE's existing degree program in Earth and Space Science Education.

Applications should include: 1) a cover letter that includes a description of research and teaching interests and experience; 2) a CV; and 3) the email contact information for three references.
