Research methodologies and best practices for effective assessment of ethics content in STEM curricula.  Design and develop an assessments program on the basis of this research.

Research grant and funding opportunities for extending LSU's "embedded" ethics project.   Work with LSU Ethics Director to write and apply for such grants. 

Present project research findings (around developing and assessing "embedded" ethics modules @ LSU) at an internal conference in May 2023.

Minimum Qualifications:

Preferred Qualifications:

At least two years of teaching experience in two or more of the following areas: Applied Ethics, Bioethics, Philosophy of Technology/AI, Philosophy and History of STEM, Environmental Ethics.
