Two research positions in new methods for science education applied to astrophysics ￼
We invite expressions of interest in two research positions of 3 years each, aimed at developing new methods for science education in universities, schools, and for the general public. The subject emphasis will be astrophysics.
Researchers engaged in this project will join a wider initiative across multiple departments in the Milano-Bicocca University and other universities and industries in the Milan area. One of the main aims of the project is to develop new, effective, and engaging actions to improve learning outcomes and raise the interest in scientific disciplines across both the student population and the general public. Specifically, our group is leading the development of both active learning modules for students and interactive citizen scientist projects, with a subject emphasis in observational astrophysics, also leveraging access to a soon-to-be-commissioned 40cm optical telescope on campus.
