The College of Arts and Sciences at Lawrence Technological University is inviting applications for a full-time postdoctoral research fellowship in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to support our Inclusive Excellence-Course-based Research Experience (IE-CRE) program. IE-CRE is a signature initiative of the College of Arts and Sciences at LTU that promotes the inclusion of all students through course-based research experiences in multiple disciplines; see

IE-CRE implements an educational paradigm that facilitates learning through an exciting and engaging original research experience, providing students not merely with knowledge, but also with problem-solving tools and capabilities that go outside and beyond the textbook. IE-CRE community members teach CRE courses, conduct research on diversity in higher education curricula, and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in academia, in the community, and in the society at large. Importantly, IE-CRE community members contribute to the advancement of evidence-based solutions to enhance equity, compassion, social action, and empowerment and to reduce prejudice, stereotyping, and exclusion.

We seek a postdoctoral fellow whose work and interests reflect the goals of the IE-CRE initiative at LTU. The anticipated start date is in August 2021. While the position is currently available for one year, renewal for a second year is possible upon performance, the needs of the project and university, and the availability of resources.

QUALIFICATIONS: The successful candidates must have a PhD or equivalent in Psychology, Sociology, Education, Human Development/Family Sciences, or a related field and must exhibit a promising research agenda.

Successful candidates must be able to articulate how their research reflects the mission of the IE- CRE program. Evidence of expertise in advanced quantitative methods and working with complex data sets is a plus.

Initial review of applications will begin on June 30th, 2021 and will continue until the position is filled. To apply, please send the following materials electronically to (1) a personal statement describing your research interests, background, and fit for this position; be sure to indicate how your research and future goals relate to IE-CRE, (2) a curriculum vitae including a list of references, and (3) a writing sample or publication.

Lawrence Technological University (LTU) conducts pre-employment screening on initial candidates for all positions, which may include but is not limited to, a criminal background check, verification of academic credentials, license, certifications, and/or verification of work history.
