Massachusetts Institute of Technology
We are hiring staff for summer 2018! If you are a current female MIT or Wellesley student (or recent alumna), please read the job descriptions below and apply! (We do not hire staff from outside the MIT or Wellesley communities).
We encourage prospective staff to contact staff from previous years (see links at the bottom of this page) to learn more about their experiences working for WTP.
MIT female Post-Docs, and MEng students who will graduate in June 2018, are also eligible to apply.
Instructors receive paid 3-month summer TA appointments (or equivalent salary if no longer students) and earn TA credit towards their PhD requirement.
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 mostly finished with WTP responsibilities.
Residential Tutors are current female MIT or Wellesley undergraduates, MEng students, or recent graduates. They assist the WTP-EECS Instructors in the classroom as TAs, and also live in the dormitory with the high school students, chaperoning residential life, creating fun activities and field trips, and helping with homework.
Please share this Tutor Information flyer with anyone who might be interested.
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 expect to hire 10 WTP-EECS Residential Tutors for 2018: four for CS and three each for EE and Math. Check the WTP-EECS curriculum page for information about these classes to better understand the requisite Tutor backgrounds needed for each subject.
The Residential Tutor Job Description has many more details about the position and schedule.
Residential Assistants are typically rising MIT sophomores; some attended WTP when they were in high school. They help make a warm WTP community and organize residential activities and field trips into Boston and Cambridge.

WTP Director and WTP-EECS Track Coordinator
I have been the WTP Director since fall 2002, after the first pilot summer. Before that I managed computer software companies and worked in management consulting. My two children are "out of the nest." In my free time I like to sing, read mysteries, and watch old movies, especially film noire, musicals and science fiction. In addition to my WTP responsibilities, I also direct the Industrial Connection Program in the MIT EECS department.
