This Symposium takes place Friday & Saturday, January 5-6, concurrent with the AAPT/AAS Joint Winter Meeting in Seattle. The symposium will consist of a keynote talk by Jay Pasachoff, an invited talk on education research by Doug Duncan, contributed talks by AAPFs on their research and education projects, and discussion panels on (1) new directions in undergraduate education in astronomy, (2) teaching the night sky in the modern world, and (3) making the transition from a postdoc to a career position. Prospective fellowship applicants, science educators and other members of the astronomy and astrophysics community are welcome and encouraged to attend. The NSF Astronomy and Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellowships provide opportunities for highly qualified investigators within three years of obtaining their PhD to carry out an integrated program of independent research and education. The program is intended to recognize early- career investigators of significant potential and to provide them with experience in research and education that will establish them in positions of distinction and leadership in the community. This is an AAS-sponsored event and AAPT members are invited to attend. For more information, contact Erik Rosolowsky (erosolow/snail/cfa/harvard/edu)
