(13) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Scholar in Simulation in Clinical Social Work Practice and Education

We are seeking a talented and motivated postdoctoral scholar to design and implement research that explores the use of simulated client scenarios for use in teaching and research for social work practice.  
Simulation-based learning (SBL) is an immersive technique wherein conditions are created that enact the experience of a ‘real life’ scenario for the purpose of training and/or assessment of identified skills. Simulated Client Scenarios (SCS) have already been tested using objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs), which are simulation-based opportunities commonly used to assess student knowledge and clinical skills in fields such as medical education, nursing, and social work. Research on the use of simulation in education has shown SBL to have additional benefits through the discovery of vicarious learning. Simulations can be offered in a range of modalities, from live encounters (in-person, or online) to virtual, pre-recorded material that can be interacted with in a range of ways.   

The successful candidate will build a program of research with: 1) coordination and supervision of projects using simulation in either teaching approaches or research on clinical skill development; 2) contribution and collaboration on projects related to the use of simulation in interprofessional practice and education; 3) development of interdisciplinary approaches to the use of simulation with an intersectional lens that considers issues of equity, diversity and inclusion in case scenarios and methodologies. This position is expected to contribute to existing projects and expand research in the areas of focus through the development of complementary research proposals and publications.
