About the Project
The closing date for applications is Wednesday 30th September 2020 and the start date will be by mutual agreement.
The aim of the PhD project is to investigate the underlying causes of the phenomenon that demographic minorities and underrepresented groups often show a relatively low attainment, both in the Department of Physics and elsewhere, and to implement targeted interventions with the aim of alleviating such gaps. The work will focus on attitudes with respect to learning and sense of belonging to a community, alongside a stream of research exploring course delivery and assessment strategy.
This PhD position is part of a larger departmental project, Strengthening Learning Communities, with two additional posts: a Senior Teaching Fellow focusing on assessment and a Research Associate leading on quantitative analysis and modelling. The ultimate goal of this project is to contribute to a diverse and inclusive assessment strategy in The Faculty of Natural Sciences at Imperial College London and beyond, in conjunction with the ongoing Curriculum Review process. Further, the project aims to develop successful interventions to enhance a sense of belonging in all students from different gender, cultural, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds that can be rolled out across College to foster a strong and inclusive community.
