Job posting

Research program title

The AIM Collective: Connecting Assessment and Instruction in Early Childhood Mathematics

Reference number



Program description

Assessment and evaluation in mathematics can be leveraged by elementary teachers to make targeted decisions about how to support their students’ mathematical development. Our exciting new pan-Canadian partnership, the AIM Collective, aims to create and curate mathematics assessment and instructional strategies that support all children in reaching their full potential. We are seeking an energetic postdoctoral fellow who will be primarily responsible for conducting and disseminating research on newly-created classroom assessments that can be used to inform teacher practice in mathematics. The fellowship will entail extensive collaboration with AIM researchers, collaborators, and partner school boards across Canada to address the needs of practicing teachers in their efforts to support their students’ mathematical success. The position will provide a unique opportunity to network with scholars in education, mathematics education, and cognitive psychology in conducting applied research with educators. The successful candidate will have excellent writing and data analysis skills, as well as a commitment to forging connections between researchers and practitioners toward our common goal. Come and join our dynamic team!
