The Education Policy Innovation Collaborative (EPIC) at Michigan State University (MSU) is seeking up to two research associates (postdoctoral researchers) to join EPIC to work on an externally-funded study of competency-based education (CBE) implementation in seven Michigan school districts.
The two research associates (postdoctoral researchers) will work closely together and with a large research team (including Drs. Katharine Strunk and Josh Cowen, EPIC staff researchers and doctoral students), to study the implementation, evolution and efficacy of a CBE pilot taking place in Michigan. Ideally, one research associate will have expertise in implementation science and survey design and analysis. The other will have deep experience leading qualitative data collection and analysis (interviews, case studies and observations). Both should have a substantive interest in curriculum and instruction, personalized learning and/or alternative forms of instruction and assessment.
