This particular position has an emphasis on attracting individuals from groups who have been historically under-represented in special education and in mathematics and science. The position is a two-year post-doctoral fellowship within the Department of Special Education. Successful postdocs in the Bridge to the Faculty program, with department approval, will have the opportunity to transition to Tenure-Track Assistant Professor position at UIC starting in the 2023-2024 academic year. Selected scholars will be a part of the second cohort of 20 Bridge to the Faculty Scholars. In addition to mentorship within the Department of Special Education, fellows will participate in a cohort-based mentoring experience through the Office of the Vice Provost for Diversity. Duties: The primary expectation for the post-doctoral scholars will be to begin a program of research. This includes: (a) prepare and submit manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals, beginning with research coming from their dissertation or other recent scholarly work, (b) present their research at national and local conferences in order to network and get writing and research vetted and ready for next steps, (c) identify and seek internal funding and collaborate with colleagues on extramural grant proposals to support their research. (d) teach two classess during the fellowship (2 years) in their topic of specialty. The post-doctoral scholar will have access to institutional and departmental initiatives specifically designed to support the development of a successful assistant professor. This unique post-doctoral opportunity provides a structured opportunity to be mentored while building a successful teaching portfolio and a program of research with access to individualized supports for academic productivity.
