					       Post Doctoral Fellowship in Education Policy

The Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia is pleased to
announce a post-doctoral fellowship in educational policy. The successful
candidate will have an earned doctorate, demonstrated research interests in
educational policy, strong quantitative research skills, an interest in working
collaboratively with faculty on K-12 education policy issues, as well as an
independent research agenda. A background in economics or public policy is
preferred but not required.

Faculty at the Curry School are working collaboratively with policymakers in
Virginia and elsewhere to explore ways in which research can inform policies
to improve the preparation, recruitment and retention of teachers to improve
outcomes for poor, non-white and low-performing students. Fellows are
expected to contribute to this mission broadly defined.

The fellowship is for 12 months beginning July 2008 (with some flexibility)
with an annual stipend of $50,000.

An application packet must include the following:
   Cover letter
