Call for Instructors in Physics: Stanford Pre-Collegiate Summer Institutes 2014
The Stanford Pre-Collegiate Summer Institutes (formerly EPGY Summer Institutes) seeks experienced post-doctoral scholars, advanced graduate students, or adjunct faculty to teach three-week courses in Physics to academically talented high school students in Summer 2014 at Stanford. Courses in these areas include:
- Topics in Physics (classical – grades 8–9)
- Cosmology (grades 9–11)
- Particle Physics (grades 9–11)
The Summer Institutes are academic residential programs offering high school students advanced-level academic study in a single intensive course. Students are selected for both their ability and interest in the course subject areas. Instructors are supported by undergraduate and graduate student teaching assistants. Each day consists of 2½ hours of class time led by the Instructor, plus a 3-hour period for individual and small group work dedicated to assignments led by TAs. This is an ideal opportunity for those who enjoy working with bright, motivated students and are interested in developing or furthering their teaching experience.
Summer Institutes instructors have the unique opportunity to develop their own course. Courses are intended for academic enrichment and they are taken without credit so there are no curriculum requirements. Instructors may teach one or more sessions depending on availability and program needs.
Session 1: June 22 – July 11, 2014
Session 2: July 14 – August 2, 2014
To apply: visit https://epgy.stanford.edu/summer/employmentapp.html to submit an online application. Be ready to upload a current CV or resume. Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. Interviews may be conducted via Skype for those not in the Bay Area.
