A generously funded project (2016-2021) welcomes applicants with interest in and expertise in automated text analysis. The project, M-Write, brings together researchers from writing studies, the natural sciences, and computer programming to investigate how Writing-to-Learn pedagogies promote conceptual learning by students in large-enrollment gateway courses. Students write in response to carefully crafted assignments, participate in automated peer, and then revise their drafts. Approximately 10,000 students have already participated in M-Write courses, which means that there is already a large corpus of student writing and peer review responses, with more being added each semester. We seek a specialist in automated text analysis to join the research team.  Goals include principled corpus compilation, analysis, and development of corpus-driven algorithms to support student learning of key concepts highlighted in assignments.

This position will be a 12-month Post-Doctoral Fellowship beginning in June 2018. The salary is negotiable.
