The Office of Education Research (OER) of the National Institute of Education (NIE), Singapore, encompass 5 priority research areas in:
• Cognitive, Emotional and Social Development (CESD)
• Learning Sciences & Innovation (LSI)
• Schools, Leadership and System Studies (SLSS)
• Teacher Professionalism and Learning (TPAL)
• Lifelong Learning, Cognition and Wellbeing (LLCW)
Since 1 April 2008, OER has led efforts to spearhead programmes grounded in the principles of advancing research, development and innovation at NIE. OER is committed to providing the resources and support systems – through the governance, monitoring, quality assurance and dissemination of education research – that will produce high-quality education research with impact on policy and practice.
NIE’s research is guided by the Research and Development Framework – a policy-driven, evidence based framework that guides academic and research staff to improve the quality of teaching and learning in Singapore schools and to build on NIE's standing as a leading international research institution.
The Office aims to conduct rigorous, relevant multidisciplinary research and development that inform policy, pedagogy and practice in Singapore and internationally. With a strong focus on advancing knowledge in the 5 priority areas above, the Office provides researchers with valuable research opportunities and platforms to enhance their global academic profile.
The Office is looking for Research Scientists/Senior Research Scientists to join their research efforts in the strategic university area in Science of Learning in Education Centre (SoLEC).
The SoLEC frontier at NIE draws upon a science-based understanding to assess the effectiveness of educational methods and to develop new teaching and learning strategies that can lead to actionable and scalable interventions within the education system to enhance learning outcomes.
We are interested in candidates with expertise in multi-dimensional approaches to learning (neural, physiological, socio-cultural) and who can provide a strong resource base towards the science of learning and development, the principles of teaching and learning, and research methods that make strong connections between biological processes, contexts of learning, educational outcomes and systemic impact.
Candidates with appropriate qualifications and relevant research experience are encouraged to apply. Successful candidates will work with a team of driven researchers in diverse areas related to SoL.
In addition, the Office provides Research Scientists with valuable research opportunities and the platform to enhance their global academic profile. The Office is dedicated to their interests by providing grant opportunities such as the Education Research Funding Programme (ERFP), a pool of research funds administered by the Office and supported by the Ministry of Education (MOE), Singapore. Since 1 April 2008, the Office of Education Research (OER) has led efforts to spearhead programmes grounded in the principles of advancing research, development and innovation at NIE. OER is committed to providing the resources and support systems – through the governance, monitoring, quality assurance and dissemination of education research – that will produce high-quality education research with impact on policy and practice.
