A one-year, full-time position as a postdoctoral researcher is available at the Department of Science Education, University of Copenhagen, Denmark, with the possibility of a one-year extension. The position starts on December 1st, 2019, or as soon as possible thereafter.  

The postdoctoral position will be attached to the research group on Science Education in Out-of-School Contexts, which has strong working relationships with a number of Danish out-of-school science institutions. Members of the group work together to understand and improve the use of out-of-school science in primary, secondary and tertiary education, and increase participation in out-of-school science by increasing the gender, socio-economic and ethnic diversity among participants.

The research programme of the group is based on the Anthropological Theory of Didactics (ATD), meaning that its research revolves around the transformation of science as it is taken up from the world of scientists and other scholars, and subsequently reconstructed in the educational initiatives of out-of-school science institutions. The societal, institutional, pedagogical and didactical conditions that shape this transformation process are a part of the group’s area of study. More information on the research group and its programme is available here: https://outofschoolscience.sites.ku.dk
