Default Summer Faculty Positions for Math Program

From the Executive Director:

Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics: Summer Faculty Positions

This summer, change the lives of talented middle school students from underserved backgrounds: teach them what mathematics really is.

Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics (BEAM), a project of the Art of Problem Solving Foundation, is seeking instructors for a program that gives everyone a chance to excel in mathematics. Faculty design and teach their own courses to bright, underserved middle school students. During summer 2017, we will run two programs, a residential program on college campuses in the Hudson Valley, and a day program in New York City.

Residential Program (BEAM 7):
Compensation: $5,000 for four weeks (or $3,300 for junior faculty such as graduate students or early-career teachers), plus room, board, and a transportation stipend.
Location: Bard College and a second campus TBD, both located about 2 hours out of NYC. Our students, all from high-poverty New York City public schools, will be discovering a new environment in these idyllic settings.
Dates: July 6 to August 2, 2017

Courses at BEAM 7 can be:
Pure math such as number theory, combinatorics, graph theory, or logic;
Applied math such as circuit design, programming, astrophysics, or genetics; or
Problem solving, either Math Team Strategies or Solving Big Problems.




Non-residential Program:
Compensation: $2,400-$5,600 for six weeks depending on course load (part-time positions available).
Location: New York City
Dates: July 5 to August 15, 2017

BEAM 6 teachers receive outlines to help plan courses in Logical Reasoning, Math Team Strategies, Math Fundamentals, or Applied Math, and we are flexible for many different courses that meet our learning goals.

For both:
Ideal candidates include college or university professors (as well as graduate students) with strong teaching backgrounds, and middle or high school teachers with strong mathematics backgrounds. We've found that the community of teachers that we create, bringing together instructors from across many different academic areas, is one of the program's strengths and provides a great experience for all participants.

Good candidates will work well on a close-knit team and will be able to bring unique curriculum perspectives to the program. Experience with other extracurricular outreach programs (such as math summer programs or math circles, MATHCOUNTS, programming workshops, or similar) are also a plus. We will provide mentorship, textbooks, and other resources as needed.

This is a unique opportunity to influence the lives of young students. Our students have tremendous potential and a strong ability for abstract reasoning, but because of their schools and backgrounds they often have not had the same training as more affluent peers. They are devoted, doing many hours of math each day (and loving it). We hope that you will join us (and them)!

For more information and the application, contact us at info@beammath.org or visit our website at www.beammath.org.

BEAM 7 FACULTY (SUMMER RESIDENTIAL)
This summer, change the lives of talented 7th-grade students from underserved backgrounds: teach them what mathematics really is.

BEAM, a project of the Art of Problem Solving Foundation, is seeking instructors for a program that creates a realistic pathway for low-income students to pursue mathematics, engineering, programming, and other STEM careers. Faculty will develop and teach courses aimed at students who have few resources but lots of potential. Faculty can teach combinatorics, number theory, problem solving, graph theory, game theory, circuit design, or other topics of their choice to students who (up until now) have never been exposed to such a wide array of mathematical possibilities. Each faculty member has the ability to propose and develop new courses based solely on your interests. All course ideas are welcome as long as they lead students to deep, mathematical reasoning.

We seek:

college or university professors who want to give back and expand the mathematics pipeline,
experienced school teachers with strong mathematics backgrounds,
professionals with a strong background and an interest in sharing their work,
individuals with a strong background in engineering, computer science, or similar fields who will enable students to apply mathematical reasoning in applied courses.
Additionally, junior faculty positions are available, intended for graduate students in STEM fields or early-career teachers.

All faculty must be available for our entire session dates (July 6-August 2) and must be available to prepare their classes prior to the program. We will provide mentorship, textbooks, and other resources as needed.

The program runs at two college campuses in upstate New York, and you will have some flexibility in deciding which site you prefer. The salary is $5000 for faculty, and $3300 for junior faculty. In addition, food, housing, and transportation are all provided.

Faculty will teach courses for students who have few resources but lots of potential. Courses include Logical Reasoning, Math Fundamentals, and Math Team Strategies. Faculty can also design and propose their own courses in Applied Math or for the Afternoon Math Circle.

We seek:

experienced and creative school teachers,

Faculty must also be available to prepare their classes prior to the program. We will provide mentorship, textbooks, and other resources as needed.

The program runs at a school in Manhattan easily accessible by most subway lines. The salary ranges from $2000-$5800 depending on course load. Additionally, faculty are warmly invited to join students for breakfast and lunch as well as activities and field trips, building out the program's community.
