The robotics group at Jacobs University has a postdoc position for
research on educational robotics, which is to be filled as soon as
possible. Note that the planned research is on and not in educational
robotics. Concretely, we want to study the effects of hands-on teaching
components, i.e., the use of labs, with respect to intended learning
outcomes (ILO) in a BSc curriculum in “Robotics and Intelligent
Systems”. Aspects to investigate include the effects of trade-offs
between lecture and lab components as well as the study of different
forms of group formation.
The ideal candidate has a background in education research and some
experience with research methods in evidence-based education in
engineering or the natural sciences. Possible additional experience in
educational robotics is of course a big plus.
The position is financed for initially 2 years by the Jacobs Foundation
within a project in the “B3 – Bildung Beyond Boundaries” framework.
Applications should be send via email to “firstname.lastname@example.org”
with the subject line “B3 postdoc”.
