This is an exciting time to join the College of Social Sciences at the
University of Birmingham. Twelve months on from its creation, the
College is seeing a surge in its research awards and significant
increases in high quality undergraduate and post graduate student
numbers. Both of these achievements are underpinned by the commitment of
academics in the College to inter-disciplinary collaboration and
tangible policy impact. More broadly, the University has a new
Vice-Chancellor - Professor David Eastwood - who has stated his ambition
to make Birmingham one of the leading global HE institutions.

The School of Education is looking for an internationally-acclaimed
researcher in science, technology, engineering or maths education
(STEM). The person appointed will assist us in developing new research
in the College of Social Sciences, with an emphasis on conducting
world-class studies in areas related to curriculum, pedagogy or
assessment in STEM subjects for any phase of education. You will work
with our existing first-rate maths, science and engineering teams, and
with the new HEFCE funded STEM Centre based in the College of
Engineering and Physical Sciences, to expand our research and impact in
this area.

Informal enquiries can be made by contacting Professor Gary Thomas (Head
of School) on Tel: 00 44 (0)121 414 4841 or Professor Stephen Gorard on
