Chris Davidson, a recent IPG affiliated PhD graduate in Education and Leadership, has accepted a Post Doc position with David Knight in Department of Engineering Education. He will be working on an NSF Grant Funded Project that is a collaborative research between Virginia Tech and the University of Texas at Austin. They will conduct a mixed methods research project to better understand how various mechanisms of funding – teaching assistantships, research assistantships, fellowships and traineeships, etc. – influence student’s pursuit of doctorates in STEM (Science, Technology Engineering & Math) and subsequent employment.
Congratulations Chris and best wishes!
