Dr. Charlene Czerniak

The University of Toledo is seeking four full time doctoral students from the College of Education and/or the College of Engineering to work on educational programming and research within the National Science Foundation-funded grant called NURTURES. The position will be available beginning in the Fall semester of 2017, pending full award notification.

NURTURES focuses on early childhood science, mathematics and literacy within the context of science inquiry. Pending full award notification, the Discovery Research Prek-12 (DRK-12) grant is anticipated to be funded through Summer 2021 and will cover full time graduate assistantships for both the academic year and summers. Summers are required for anyone accepting the assistantship.

Doctoral students will be required to participate in both the educational programming and research components of this program. Money may be available for travel to conferences when presenting research studies related to grant-supported activities. The assistantship covers full time tuition and the college-specific standard stipend for the academic year and summer. Assistantships are awarded contractually for fall/spring and summer separately; renewal is contingent upon availability of funding and student performance on the project.

Preference will be given to doctoral students who are in science education, early childhood education, literacy, and engineering. Students in mathematics or technology education or other teacher education backgrounds will also be considered. Preference will also be given to students who have either attended or worked at our partnering school districts: Airport Community Schools, Elmwood Local Schools, Educational Service Center of Lake Erie West, Genoa Area Local Schools, Ida Public Schools, Monroe County Intermediate School District, Monroe Public Schools, Otsego Local Schools, Pettisville Schools, Seneca East Local Schools, Tiffin City Schools, Washington Local Schools and WSOS Community Action Schools.
