Massachusetts Institute of Technology
We are in the process of hiring WTP-EECS staff for summer 2015. If you are a current female MIT student or recent alumna, please read the job descriptions below and apply! Feel free to contact staff from previous years who are still at MIT to learn more about their experiences working for WTP.
Post-Docs, and MEng students who will graduate in June 2015, are also eligible to apply (and will be paid equivalent salaries instead of TAships).
This is your opportunity to design and teach your own course and influence high school women to pursue engineering and computer science. Teaching for WTP also gives you real experience you can talk about when interviewing for academic positions after graduation.
You must be able to work full-time for WTP in June and July and temporarily take time off from your research. You are paid for the month of August, but by then are finished with WTP responsibilities.
Residential Tutors are current female MIT undergraduates, MEng students, or recent MIT graduates. They assist the WTP-EECS Instructors in the classroom, and also live in the dormitory with the high school students, chaperoning residential life, creating fun activities and field trips, and helping with homework. You do not have to be a Course 6 major. If you are looking for an alternative to a summer internship or UROP, or are graduating from MIT in June, and want to do something fun that also "gives back" to young women in the engineering pipeline, please apply!
We will hire 9 WTP-EECS Residential Tutors for 2015: three for each of our classes: CS, EE, and Discrete Math. In addition to a love of teaching, each subject has the following background requirements:
Computer Science: Class is an introduction for students with NO prior background in programming. Tutors must have an in-depth understanding of 6.00/6.0001 level material; Python is a plus. Previous experience as an LA for 6.00, 60001, 6.001 or 6.S189 would be perfect.
Check the WTP-EECS curriculum page for more information about these classes.
For more details about the job and to apply, go to the WTP-EECS Residential Tutor Application Form Word document or .pdf and apply as soon as possible. We will interview and hire Tutors as applications are received.
We are still seeking Residential Assistants to live in the dorm and help with evening and weekend activities. You do not have EE, CS, or Math classroom responsibilities, but will work in the Pappalardo lab with the WTP students for the final Motor Building design challenge.
Residential Assistants typically attended WTP when they were in high school and are usually rising sophomores in their summer working for WTP. They help make a warm community in the dorm and they organize weekend activities and field trips into Boston and Cambridge.
