The focus of this training program is to prepare postdoctoral fellows to apply cognitive science principles to crucial issues in education, with a special focus on mathematics, language development, and early learning. Fellows will be recruited from psychology and education departments and be paired with a faculty advisor from each of these two fields. During their training, fellows will strengthen their ability to conduct classroom-based research and to use sophisticated research methods and statistics. Each of the four fellows will be trained for 2 years. They will work on existing research grants, conduct independent research, work collaboratively with other researchers across fields, and hone professional skills (e.g., writing, presenting, managing research).
