Post-Doctoral Fellow in Social and Epistemic Network Analysis
The post holder will join Professor Lani Florian, and Dr Nataša Pantic in developing their work on Teachers as Agents of Change and Inclusive Pedagogy. The successful candidate will principally work on an interdisciplinary study of teacher agency addressing the complexity of inclusive pedagogy as situated practice. This project draws from education, sociology and learning analytics using new network analytic methods that permit analysis of teachers’ impact on a range of outcomes while retaining insight into their situated, relational practices. Specifically, the successful candidate will help develop and implement a research project that employs Social and Epistemic Network analysis to examine change in teachers’ beliefs and practices as they collaborate with families, colleagues and other professionals.
You will have a degree and post-graduate qualification in education or a relevant social science discipline and experience of a variety of research practices including organising and conducting research, analysing and managing complex data sets, conducting literature reviews and writing for publication.
