Dear Physics Teachers,

We are writing to let you know about a summer physics teaching opportunity in Los Angeles this summer.

We are seeking enthusiastic instructors for our summer programs for gifted students in grades 2-12. CTY offers intense, 3-week academic programs for highly talented students from across the country and around the world. As science instructors you will have the opportunity to gain experience teaching gifted students, work in a small class setting (approximately 12-18 students, depending on the age group) with an assistant in each room, utilize a generous lab budget, and receive a competitive salary. Room & board are provided at residential locations, but staff local to the site can commute daily and do not have to live on campus. Courses are held over two 3-week sessions. Staff can work one or both sessions where available. Full course descriptions, job descriptions, and application can be found on our website: cty.jhu.edu/jobs/summer.

We are currently seeking instructor candidates for the following courses, at the listed locations (all locations offer room & board, unless noted as “non-residential”):

 

Fast-Paced High School Physics

                Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, CA, July 15 – Aug 5

Covers material (such as Mechanics and Electricity & Magnetism) ordinarily included in a year-long algebra-based high school physics course intended to prepare students to take AP Physics C the following year. Competitive instructor candidates have undergraduate and/or graduate coursework in Physics, and have taught AP Physics.

CTY also offers other physics, astrophysics, and engineering-related courses at residential locations across the country. Room and board are offered at most locations. Full details on courses can be found on our website.

If you work with undergraduates or graduate students in physics, engineering, astronomy, or related fields, CTY also hires Teaching Assistants to work in our classrooms. We seek candidates with strong curricular backgrounds in the subject area and experience working with youth for the TA position.
