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 opportunities.
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.
