Job Summary
The College of Science at the University of Utah invites applications for a scientist or mathematician with a Ph.D. in astronomy, biology, chemistry, environmental science, mathematics, physics, or related fields to help support teaching and research in the Science Research Initiative (SRI). The SRI is a unique program that focuses on providing undergraduate students with authentic research experiences during their first and second year of college. For more information on the SRI please click here .
 
The SRI Fellow position will provide three (3) years of funded training in mentorship and teaching, as well as the opportunity to develop high-impact undergraduate research experiences at an institution with a world-class research infrastructure and community. 
Responsibilities
Unlike traditional postdocs, SRI Fellows will be responsible for developing an independent research program that will be implemented into research streams (see here for details on current research streams) that are designed exclusively for first year undergraduate students. Fellows will also be responsible for teaching and supporting undergraduate courses associated with the SRI. SRI fellows will be provided with: research space; access to shared equipment; research funds; and discipline- and pedagogy-specific mentorship. In addition, fellows will liaise with faculty PIs to manage and oversee other research streams related to their area of interest, train teaching assistants, help manage student placement into streams, and help evaluate overall program outcomes.
Minimum Qualifications
Preferences
An ideal candidate will have undergraduate teaching/mentoring experience; a demonstrated commitment to undergraduate mentorship; a demonstrated ability to collaborate constructively with faculty, students, and staff with diverse scientific interests; and experience conceiving and executing complex projects. Researchers interested in pursuing academic positions at primarily undergraduate institutions may be especially drawn to this position, as SRI fellows will have the opportunity to develop a robust plan for undergraduate teaching and research. The position is for three years, subject to review after one year, and can begin as early as July 1, 2022. SRI fellows will receive a competitive salary and funding for research.
Type Benefited Staff
