The School of Education was established in 2002, building on an 95-year tradition at UC Davis of working to strengthen public education. The School offers preparation for the California teaching credential, master’s and doctoral-level programs for both educational researchers and practitioners, and professional development for educators throughout Northern California. It includes REEd, home to a broad array of educational programs and projects focused on strengthening our region’s K-16 education system to meet the needs of California’s youth. The School is organized into eight functional units and includes approximately 40 senate and clinical faculty and 50 staff, with an operating budget of approximately $12M. The School’s staff associates are an important part of our shared work in preparing education leaders, advancing research and scholarship, and making a difference for teachers, students and communities.

Postdoctoral Scholar: UC Davis School of Education
At UC Davis, a postdoctoral scholar is one who trains under the direction of a (research) mentor in a substantial full-time program of advanced research and training beyond the doctoral level, in preparation for an independent career. Postdoctoral scholars may expect the opportunity for collaborative and independent research and publications as determined by mutual agreement with their mentor.
