This position is a grant-funded, non-tenure track, Academic Year faculty position beginning September 1, 2016.

The premise of the project is to work toward a practicable framework for schools to sustain over extended timeframe.  Future funding for both schools and the department is required to further develop the aforementioned systems. Other grants include school and classroom assessment, educational measurement and coaching (instructional and behavior management).  

The hire will analyze data, publish journal articles, and attract extramural funding with a great multidisciplinary research team. The hire will serve as a liaison for both current and potential federal sponsors. This individual will review resources, monitor funding opportunities, and contact potential sponsors. Analytical skills will be important for processing funding opportunities to identify those which have the potential for success and are therefore worth pursuing. With staff assistance, this person will also process federal grant paperwork, assist with federal grant proposals processing, and monitor and manage federal sponsor/grant information.  The person must have excellent social and communication skills, as well as organizational and editing skills.

Qualifications. Requires a doctoral degree in education or a related field and success in publishing in peer-reviewed outlets.  Requires comprehensive analytical skills and excellent communications skills. Candidates that have experience with assisting and/or writing grant proposals will be preferred.
