Dear All,

The University of South Carolina is initiating a series of new
Discipline-Based Education Research positions in the sciences.  The first
two of these searches are starting in the School of the Earth, Ocean and
Environment (SEOE) and the Department of Biological Sciences.  We
anticipate two more positions next year and two the year after that, to
help build a core of DBER researchers across the science departments.  The
SEOE position is open to any discipline within the broad science areas of
the school (http://www.seoe.sc.edu/).  For more information, please visit:

Review of applications for the SEOE position will begin February 15, 2017.

I am the Chair of the Committee and would really like to see a diverse pool
of applicants!  I've been at the University of South Carolina for over a
decade and I love it here.

Please also pass this along to anyone you think might be interested.  If
there are questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

All the best for the New Year,
