It is an old, yet relevant, argument that education needs to focus more on real-world issues in students’ lives and communities. Nevertheless, conventional school curricula in many countries create superficial boundaries to separate nature and social worlds. Connecting science and society provides opportunities for relevant, engaging, and authentic learning through personally meaningful, experiential, inquiry, and place-based practices which are fundamental to scientific and environmental literacy (Chinn, 2007). In other words, a science learning standpoint that acknowledges a societal standpoint accumulates that human activities are driving environmental and evolutionary change (Palumbi, 2001; Mapping Human Impacts on the Biosphere, 2001).
The University is seeking to appoint a Senior Lecturer, Associate Professor or Professor of Education with research specialism in Science Education who can contribute to undergraduate and post graduate teaching and supervision.
The Department of Science Education seeks an excellent scholar for an associate professorship in higher education research, with a specialization within teaching and learning in university science programs. Preferably, the associate professor’s research will focus on students and/or teachers’ professional development within science programs.

ESERA presently has five Special Interest Groups (SIGs); see www.esera.org/sigs/esera-special-interest-groups . These groups facilitate communication and cooperation between ESERA members sharing research interests on a specific issue (either thematic or methodological). Members are invited to join one or more SIGs for an additional fee of € 3 a year. The Board also encourages establishing new SIGs; see www.esera.org/sigs/guidelines-for-sig-coordinators for details. There will be opportunities to get in touch with SIGs during the ESERA 2017 conference, both through thematic symposia and through SIG meetings to be held at lunchtime on Tuesday. If you have questions concerning SIGs, please get in touch with Ellen K. Henriksen who is the ESERA board member responsible for following up SIGs.
Springer publishes the ESERA Science Education Research Series, which includes books of selected papers from ESERA conferences as well as other titles.
