The London Knowledge Lab (LKL) is seeking a
Post-Doctoral Fellow to contribute to the
Cornerstone Project, which is led by Prof Celia
Hoyles and Prof Richard Noss. This project forms
part of a proposal agreed by the Li Ka Shing
Foundation to fund SRI International to
investigate and scale the use of their proven
effective mathematics materials that exploit the
innovative use of digital technology for learning
mathematics across several mathematical units.
The LKL will be working with SRI International to
deliver this programme in the UK, and is
responsible for providing local expertise in the
modification, implementation, research and
evaluation of the mathematics materials and
software platform.

You will contribute to the research work of the
Cornerstone Project, taking responsibility for
day-to-day research support in collaboration
with, and supervised by, the Project Directors.
Alongside your main responsibilities for the
Cornerstone Project and to the Project Directors,
you will be encouraged to develop your own area
of expertise, forming connections where
appropriate with other research within the LKL
and across the IOE, including developing
proposals for further funded research

You will have a first degree or equivalent in
mathematics, mathematics education, or other
relevant field; and a PhD in or related to the
field of mathematics education. We require
someone with a vision of the roles that digital
technologies can play in the learning of
mathematics, and experience in the collection and
analysis of student-computer interaction in a
mathematical context. You will also be required
to demonstrate prior experience of collecting
data in schools or similar educational
institutions, with evidence of good data
collection and evaluation skills.

The appointment will be subject to a CRB Disclosure.
