Subject: PER Position at NC State

Hi all,

I thought there might be some interest in this advertisement. We are definitely looking for a PER person to take a leadership position within our group. We've got beautiful new facilities (3 observation rooms with one way glass, etc.) and a growing, collaborative effort in other discipline-based education research fields (chemistry, geosciences, statistics, engineering, and more in the future.) Let me (or Ruth, or Bruce, or John) know if you have any questions.
