This is a one-year position and includes opportunities for research,
publication, and teaching.

This fellow will serve as a Research Associate on the Pre-Service
Teachers' Developing Understanding of Number Theory project. This
project, led by Dr. Ziv Feldman, examines classroom interactions
around mathematical tasks to identify the ways in which pre-service
elementary teachers develop a deeper understanding of number theory
concepts taught in the elementary grades. In addition, this Fellow
will teach 2 math content courses each semester for prospective
elementary teachers.

Candidates for this position must have an earned doctoral degree in
mathematics education prior to starting the appointment. The
successful applicant will have a demonstrated ability to engage in
scholarship in mathematics education, experience teaching mathematics
courses for preservice or inservice elementary or secondary school
teachers, experience in both qualitative and quantitative methods of
data analysis, and strong content knowledge of K-12 mathematics.
Prior experience teaching in K-8 classrooms is preferred.

The position is open to all qualified U.S. citizens and permanent
resident aliens without regard to race, age, gender, religion, color,
national origin, or physical disability. The appointment will begin
in August 2014.

Application review will begin immediately and will continue until the
position is filled. Prospective applicants should submit application
materials electronically to Dr. Ziv Feldman (zfeld@bu.edu).
Application materials must include a letter of interest, a curriculum
vita, a statement of teaching philosophy, and two professional
letters of reference. Inquires about the position can be directed to
Dr. Feldman.
