The Interactive Online Network of Inorganic Chemists ( has an opening for a Research Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of South Florida (Tampa, Florida) with a focus on transforming postsecondary inorganic chemistry courses into more active and engaging learning experiences. The Postdoctoral Scholar will join a collaborative group of educators and researchers as new curricular resources (i.e., Learning Objects on the VIPEr website) are developed, data on student learning and instructional practices are collected and analyzed, and professional development workshops are planned and facilitated. Experience conducting chemical education research is not required for the position; however, candidates with experience in chemistry education research, scholarship of teaching and learning, or with a demonstrable knowledge of the themes, issues, and methods central to chemical education research are preferred. Candidates must have an interest in teaching undergraduate inorganic chemistry courses following the Research Postdoctoral Scholar experience. Please see the position advertisement for a complete description of the position and application process. Please contact Dr. Jeffrey R. Raker ( for questions about the position.


According to my sources at USF, there may have been a bit of a delay in getting the actual application live. That and your friendly neighborhood BITeS poster might have had an itchy mouse clicker finger. We will be sure to update this post with news about the application going live in the near future.
