Sibel Erduran

Professor of Science Education

College Affiliation: St Cross College

Sibel Erduran is Professor of Science Education and Director of Research. Prior to her appointment at Oxford, she was the Chair of STEM Education at University of Limerick, Ireland where she was the Director of EPI-STEM, National Centre for STEM Education.

She held a Distinguished Chair Professor position at National Taiwan Normal University, Taiwan funded by the Taiwan Global Networking Talent Project; as well as Visiting Professorships at Kristianstad University, Sweden, and Bogazici University, Turkey.

She is the Editor-in-Chief of Science & Education, and an Editor for International Journal of Science Education. She is the President of the European Science Education Research Association, and Professor II at University of Oslo, Norway. Previously she worked at University of Pittsburgh, USA; King’s College, University of London; and University of Bristol, United Kingdom. She was a middle school science and high school chemistry teacher in a school with British curriculum in northern Cyprus.

She completed her higher education in the USA at Vanderbilt (PhD Science Education & Philosophy), Cornell (MSc Food chemistry) and Northwestern (Biochemistry) Universities. Her research interests focus on the applications in science education of epistemic perspectives on science in general and in chemistry in particular. Her work on argumentation has received awards from NARST and EASE.

She has been the recipient of funding from Fulbright Program, Spencer Foundation, Gatsby Foundation, Nuffield Foundation, TDA, Wellcome Trust, EU Marie Curie Brain Circulation Scheme, Science Foundation Ireland, Irish Research Council, BERA and NCCA among others.Currently she is Principal Investigator of two projects, funded by the Wellcome Trust and the Templeton World Charity Foundation.
