Science Curriculum Developer Positions

The School of Education and Social Policy at Northwestern University has immediate openings for several science curriculum developers.  These curriculum developers will play key roles in a number of NSF-funded projects that are developing inquiry-based, technology-supported science curricula for middle and high school students. 
There are opportunities for individuals at several levels of background and expertise including:
* Experienced curriculum writers with strong backgrounds in science or science education
* Experienced inquiry-based middle or high school science teachers
* Early career individuals with a bachelors or masters degree in science or a secondary science teaching certificate.

These curriculum developers will be working as part of collaborative teams that include educational researchers, classroom teachers, technologists, and professional development specialists.  They will participate in design of curriculum units; writing, revision, and editing of instructional materials; design and implementation of on-line and face-to-face professional development activities for teachers; and support of field tests. 

There are currently openings for developers with a backgrounds in a variety of science content areas (physical science, chemistry, biology, Earth and environmental science).  All candidates must be committed to an inquiry-based pedagogical approach and comfortable with computers.  The technologies that are currently being developed and integrated into science curricula include: graphing and data analysis tools, geographic information systems, computer modeling environments, and tools to support argument construction and reflection. 

These projects are affiliated with the Program in the Learning Sciences (http://www.ls.sesp.northwestern.edu), the Center for Learning Technologies in Urban Schools (http://www.letus.org/), and the Center for Connected Learning and Computer-Based Modeling (http://www.ccl.sesp.northwestern.edu).
