The Graduate School of Education (GSE)
at the University at Buffalo, SUNY
is committed to fostering a diverse, inclusive, socially engaged community of scholars who prioritize teaching, research, and outreach that address educational, economic, and social disparities (For details, see GSE’s Strategic Goals
). Addressing and combatting structural inequities, particularly racism, is central to the vision, mission, and work of the GSE
. To do this effectively requires innovations in pedagogy and research that identify new ways of achieving equity, diversity, justice, and inclusion.
In recognition of this commitment, GSE has allocated resources to hire three 2-year Postdoctoral Researchers to extend the work that is underway. We are seeking scholars to join three exciting research teams starting as early as Spring or Summer 2023. Based on individual needs, the postdoctoral researchers will be provided with opportunities, resources, mentorship, and professional development to advance their research and career goals. There will be ample opportunities to hone skills in research with interdisciplinary teams, grant writing, dissemination of research findings through peer-refereed publications and conference presentations, and the translation of research to practice.
