2018-2020 Research Fellows Program logos

Application Period: June 1, 2018 – August 1, 2018.
Selected Fellows serve from Nov. 1, 2018-Aug. 31, 2020

The LBJ Institute for STEM Education and Research announces a call for faculty applicants for the 2018-2020 Faculty Research Fellows program (LBJ Institute Faculty Research Fellows).

This program began in 2015 as a project between the LBJ Institute and the College of Science and Engineering. The 2015 cohort of eight faculty research fellows collaborated on an NSF-funded $1.5M grant and have gone on to lead their own research initiatives, publish numerous journal articles, receive promotions, and lead as principle investigators of their own NSF grants.

Selected Fellows will:

a) participate in quarterly meetings where they have the opportunity to make formal presentations to peers on ongoing research

b) form teams to either seek external funding opportunities or to implement instructional changes in STEM classrooms

c) actively engage with visiting researchers and speakers on relevant, current research topics

d) present at an annual scholar seminar or internal conference for COSE

e) receive a $4,000 summer stipend upon completion of responsibilities over the 2-year appointment ($2,000/yr).

All program components are designed to create an environment that fosters success for faculty through professional development and maximization of resources at Texas State University. The goal is to enable the faculty member to complete substantial work that will (a) contribute to their professional growth, (b) support development of a professional learning community of STEM across the university and (c) support COSE students.
