The Human Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University has an opening for a Post-Doctoral position beginning Summer 2021. The project addresses improving student motivation and learning in math, especially for students in minoritized or low-income communities. It pursues innovations in educational technologies including intelligent tutoring and educational games, in better human mentoring around the use of such technologies, and in empirical research to support the design and evaluation of such innovations. The ideal candidate would combine experience in K12 schools, educational technology design and development skills, and skills in qualitative and experimental mixed methods research. Strong candidates may be strong in just some of these areas.
The postdoc will be supervised by Dr. Ken Koedinger and will work closely with Dr. Vincent Aleven from CMU and Dr. Judy Harackiewicz from U Wisconsin, Madison.
