About The AERA-ETS Fellowship Program in Measurement and Education Research
Deadline: Monday, December 15, 2014
In collaboration with Educational Testing Service (ETS), AERA offers the AERA-ETS Fellowship Program in Measurement and Education Research. This fellowship is designed to provide learning opportunities and practical experience to recent doctoral degree recipients and to early career research scientists in areas such as educational measurement, assessment design, psychometrics, statistical analyses, large-scale evaluations, and other studies directed toward explaining student progress and achievement. In addition to these areas, we are seeking to advance research in science cognition and teacher evaluation. Up to two fellows will be selected for this rotational research position at ETS’s facilities in Princeton, NJ. Fellows will work on ETS research projects and engage in operations that are in line with their interests and with ETS’s research needs.

Through the program, fellows will receive valuable research experience and methodological training that will prepare them for productive research careers in a range of employment contexts. Fellows will work with an experienced researcher as a mentor and will participate in structured professional development activities provided by AERA and ETS.

Eligibility
Candidates must have completed their Ph.D. or Ed.D. degrees within three years of beginning the fellowship. A primary aim of this fellowship is to increase the involvement of women and racial/ethnic minority groups who are traditionally underrepresented in the fields of research that the fellowship covers.
