The University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education in Postdoctoral Training Program in the Education Sciences is designed to foster fellows as independent scholars. The emphasis of the program is on developing and/or refining fellows' methodology, design, fieldwork and or substantive area expertise, providing opportunities for scholarly publication and the development of the fellow's independent research agenda. The program, broadly focused on the effects of leadership and teaching on student achievement, targets three main areas: theory, research design and methods, and fieldwork. The research projects that fellows participate in are designed to allow fellows to perform at the highest levels of methodological and substantive rigor.
