Massachusetts Institute of Technology
We are still hiring WTP-EECS staff for summer 2017. If you are a current female MIT student or recent alumna, please read the job descriptions below and apply! (We do not hire staff from outside the MIT community).
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.
We have selected the 3 Instructors for Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Discrete Mathematics and are no longer seeking candidates for summer 2017.
Profiles of the Instructors will be posted in March.
Residential Tutors are current female MIT undergraduates, MEng students, or recent MIT 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.
We especially need EE and Math Tutor applicants right now. We also need non-freshman candidates to balance our team experience in all 3 subjects (CS, EE and Math).
You DO NOT have to be a Course 6 major!
The Tutor Job Description has more details about the position. The time commitment is June 12 - July 28, 2017. This is a full time commitment (cannot be done concurrently with UROPS or other jobs).
If you are looking for an alternative to a summer internship or UROP, or are graduating from MIT in June and want to "give back" to young women in the engineering pipeline, please join our team.
We expect to hire 9 WTP-EECS Residential Tutors for 2017: three for each of our classes: CS, EE, and Discrete Math. Check the WTP-EECS curriculum page for information about these classes last year; topics may change for 2017. For summer 2017 the Math Tutor role may also include some evening Python tutoring.
If you have enthusiasm, some hands-on knowledge of the topics, and would be willing to study and learn the rest before the high school students arrive, please apply!
Tutors will be hired on a rolling basis.
Residential Assistants are typically rising MIT sophomores during the summer WTP session. Some attended WTP when they were in high school. They live in the dorm with the high school students making a warm residential community and organizing fun activities and field trips into Boston and Cambridge. They do not have classroom responsibilities except for the final motor building project (for which we provide training).
The time commitment is June 12 - July 28, 2017. This is a full time commitment (cannot be done concurrently with UROPS or other jobs).
For summer 2017 we are also seeking one Senior RA who is a current MIT junior or senior (or who is over age 21) to add age balance to the staff.
The Residental Assistant Job Description has more details about the position.
Residential Assistants must make the dorm their primary residence during the 4 weeks the high school students are on campus, and work weekends and most evenings during that time.
We will hire 2 Residential Assistants plus one Senior (over age 21) RA for summer 2017.
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 adults long "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.
