(Temporary post)

A postgraduate or postdoctoral position is available immediately in the
School of Education to work on a European Funded project, Curriculum and
Subject Cultures: The case of Mathematics and Visual Arts.

The project will investigate the culture of teaching mathematics and
teaching visual arts in lower secondary school classrooms. In
particular, it aims (1) to explore the ways in which teachers use
curriculum materials (including technology based resources) in these two
different subject areas, and (2) to determine the problematics and the
potential of constructing cross-curriculum materials for mathematics

You will need to have a background and understanding of working
successfully with teachers and schools. Knowledge and experience of
classroom research methods is essential, as well as good oral
communication, writing and organisational skills.

If you wish to discuss the post informally, please contact Dr Anna
Chronaki, the Director of the project, telephone 01908 858377 or email
A. Chronaki@open.ac.uk.

The post is tenable for 9 months full-time or 12 months part-time (3
days per week), starting as soon as possible, and will be based within
the School of Education at Milton Keynes. Salary will be on either the
Research Staff Grade 1A salary scale or Research Staff Grade 1B salary
scale according to qualifications and experience. Initial salary will
not exceed
=A315, 735 p.a. (under review) (or pro rata).

Education, The Open University, Milton Keynes MK7 6AA (telephone

Closing date for applications: 30 July 1999.
