The Georgia Tech Biomedical Engineering Department’s KEEN Project is seeking to fill one full-time Postdoctoral Fellow position with a focus on the design and implementation of e-portfolio pedagogy across the engineering curriculum.

The Postdoctoral Fellow will contribute to the development of a research program to improve our understanding of how e-portfolio educational activities impact student learning. We are particularly interested in understanding how portfolios can help foster an entrepreneurial mindset within students, as well as develop their ability to craft compelling personal and professional narratives. The Postdoctoral Fellow will use a design-based implementation research approach in which they partner with students, faculty and other stakeholders, at Georgia Tech and other colleges of engineering, to ensure the novel portfolio approach that is developed will be useful and effective across a wide range of settings in engineering education. The fellow will work have the opportunity to work as part of a larger team dedicated to this initiative, and to participate in relevant meetings, conferences and workshops. Both qualitative and quantitative analyses will be conducted.

The postdoctoral fellow will work with the project co-PIs: Dr. Paul Benkeser, Dr. James Stubbs, and Dr. Joe Le Doux.
