We’re looking for a few good post docs, excited about the prospect of bringing real science to middle school classrooms.

These new post docs will be based at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and will work with the outstanding team of scientists and educators we’ve assembled for our new Students Discover project.

The big goal of Students Discover is to integrate real science with education, and the applicant must have enthusiasm and interest, if not experience and training, in both fields.  Post docs will work collaboratively with educators to develop citizen science projects around authentic research in entomology, genomics, microbiology, paleontology, and mammalogy.

See specific position descriptions (including instructions for applying) below.
