Summer Teaching opportunity with UW Math Science Upward Bound!

Summer Teaching Opportunity

The University of Washington Math Science Upward Bound (MSUB) Program seeks an Instructor to teach a Study Section class to high school students to support our Summer STEM Seminar Lecture series. MSUB is a new outreach program on the UW Campus that helps low-income and potential first-generation college students excel in high school, get accepted to college, and graduate with a STEM degree.

The MSUB STEM Seminar Series is designed to offer students an introduction to different STEM fields, a glimpse into original research, and insight into careers in STEM fields. The Study Section Instructor would attend the Seminar Series lectures and teach a one hour study section to support the lectures. Study Section Instructors help students understand the content of the lectures and develop good study skills, lead them in hands-on activities and work on group projects, and accompany students on lab and facilities tours.

The ideal candidate would be a graduate student or postdoc in a STEM field with teaching experience and a commitment to outreach and diversity. A B.S. or B.A. in a STEM field is required. Candidates from underrepresented groups or those from low-income/first generation backgrounds or with experience in working with these populations are encouraged to apply. The University of Washington is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer.

The goal of the summer program, held on the UW campus, is to help prepare students for the demands of college and advance their academic and personal development. The six week summer program runs from July 1st to August 9th, with classes held 4 days per week. Teaching commitment is 2 hours per day plus prep time. Compensation is $1,400 to $1,600 depending on background and experience. For more information or to apply, please contact David Wolczyk, at dwolczyk.
