Postdoctoral Research Associate (PSYCH)

"Hello Good People, I'm collaborating on a project examining race, gender, and school discipline and we're hiring a postdoc. Please share with your recent PhDs. Feel free to contact me if you want more info.

Texas A&M University’s Project X-CEL (under the direction of Dr. Jamilia Blake, Principal Investigator) is seeking a full-time postdoctoral research associate (R-026066) with expertise in stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination to join an interdisciplinary team embarking on a new line of research utilizing social-psychological principles to reduce racial and gendered biases in educational settings. We are particularly interested in candidates with a track-record of investigating diversity-related issues, (e.g., race, ethnicity, gender, nationality, socioeconomic status, and/or intersection of identities), proficiency with implicit measures of bias, and/or experience with applying prejudice reduction strategies in real world settings. The position is for 2 years with an available start date between July 2020 and August 2020. We anticipate that qualified candidates will have earned their doctorates by their start date in psychology (social or experimental) or related areas of study.

Duties: The postdoctoral associate will have the opportunity to get involved in all the research aspects of the project, but primary responsibilities include collaborating with the research team on data collection, data analysis, conceptualizing scientific papers and presentations, and preparing manuscripts for submission to academic journals. The position calls for a scholar capable of advancing aspects of the research project independently, but also capable of working effectively as part of a large collaborative team. The position offers an excellent opportunity to further analytical and writing skills, publish scientific papers, and receive mentorship from a rich, multidisciplinary community of scholars from diverse fields (e.g., education, psychology, communication, performance studies, and sociology).

Texas A&M University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action/Veterans/Disability employer committed to building a culturally diverse educational environment. Applications from women, minorities, and members of other underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged and will be actively sought. As a Tier 1 research and land-grant institution, Texas A&M upholds its responsibility to accountability, campus climate, equity, and scholarship by maintaining a campus that affirms equity and fosters inclusion and belonging. Diverse perspectives, talents, and identities are vital to accomplishing our mission." -Dr. Phia Salter Lee

Loyola University Chicago SOE Student Demands

03/31/2017

Update: Despite the no-confidence vote from SOE faculty last weekend, the administration has issues no formal response. Dr. Andrew Oroz, Associate Dean of Student Academic Services, was fired on Thursday and escorted from the building. With no information being given by the SOE administration, this action may be perceived as retaliatory, since Dr. Oroz was present and and part of the Academic Council meetings. Additionally, Dean Terri Pigott, despite being implicated by the grievances that led to the no-confidence vote, has been promoted to Associate Provost for Research Services for the Lakeshore Campus. Please come to the SOE Community Meeting on Thursday, April 6, 5 PM, location TBD, if you would like to be involved in addressing these issues or have concerns/questions.

"In making their decision, board members reviewed studies that indicated Native American mascots may promote discrimination, pupil harassment and stereotyping. They also studied dropout rates and discipline data which showed that last year, 3,130 Native American students enrolled in Oregon high schools. About 200 of those attended schools with Native American mascots. Those students comprise only 2 percent of state enrollment, but represent 4 percent of dropouts statewide."
