Overview


The Measurement Working Group is excited to share that the full call for applications for the Summer 2021 SEISMIC Measurement Fellowship is now available! These paid research fellow positions will focus on data analytics applied to questions of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in STEM courses. The goals of the fellowship are to advance collaborative analyses of quantitative data that can meaningfully improve DEI in large, introductory courses as well as to support the participation of early-career scholars. Fellowships target both graduate students and postdoctoral research associates interested in working collaboratively with Measurement Working Group project leads and members at SEISMIC institutions. We encourage SEISMIC participants to advertise this call internally as appropriate. Applications are due Thursday, March 18, 2021.

Questions about the application process should be directed by email to both Stefano Fiorini (sfiorini@indiana.edu) and Becky Matz (rlmatz@umich.edu). We will post frequently asked questions below with our responses.  

Frequently Asked Questions


Graduate students and postdoctoral research associates at SEISMIC institutions are eligible to apply. Candidates with identities that have been historically underrepresented in STEM disciplines (e.g., in terms of gender, race and ethnicity, and economic background) are strongly encouraged to apply. Current SEISMIC collaborators are eligible and encouraged to apply, and candidates who are at a SEISMIC institution that have not yet been involved in SEISMIC are also eligible to apply. Candidates should begin by contacting their local SEISMIC PI if they are not already connected to their local SEISMIC team.

Since our SEISMIC institutions follow different academic calendars, we will work with individual fellows to determine the best schedule for them. In the application, fellows should explicitly include the dates of their summer term in their Estimated Timeline.
