Interested in Teaching?

Each summer we hire 3 graduate student instructors, 6 residential tutors (current or soon-to-be course 2 majors) and 1 residential assistant (alumna of WTP).

Applications for Summer WTP-ME Positions:

Instructors | Residential Tutors| Residential Assistants

If you are a current female MIT student with a strong background in ME, consider teaching in WTP-ME this summer. To apply, see details below.

WTP really makes a difference: a majority of alumnae cite the WTP high school summer as the beginning of their current college majors in engineering and computer science.

Instructors
Please complete the WTP-ME Instructor Application Form (DOC)  (PDF) if you are interested and submit along with your resume to: wtp-me@mit.edu as soon as possible, ideally by FEBRUARY 1.

Instructors all receive a paid 3-month summer RA appointment. You work full time with some evening and weekend hours in June and July -- but you have August free to do whatever you wish.

Past Instructors tell us that working for WTP gave them real teaching experience they could discuss in interviews for post-graduate academic positions. Taking two months off from the lab in the summer also gave them a new perspective on their research when they returned in the fall.

Residential Tutors
We will hire 6 female MIT undergraduate students as Residential Tutors. Tutors work in the classroom weekdays and live in the dorm, tutoring academics and leading social activities evenings and weekends. This is a full-time 7-week summer commitment from mid-June through late July (no other jobs or classes), with additional occasional weekly hours during the spring semester (reading WTP applications and meeting with the Instructors).

Please complete the WTP-ME Residential Tutor Application Form (DOC)  (PDF) if you are interested, and submit with your WEBSIS Transcript and Resume to:wtp-me@mit.edu as soon as posisble, ideally by FEBRUARY 1. Interviews will be scheduled as applications are received. Be sure to read the detailed job description on page 1 of the Application Form.

Residential Assistants
We will also hire one Residential Assistant for WTP-ME -- an MIT student who attended WTP in high school -- to live and work in the dorm with the students initiating evening and weekend social activities (no classroom duties). This is a full-time 7-week summer commitment from mid-June through late July (no other jobs or classes), with additional occasional weekly hours during the spring semester (reading WTP applications).

If you would like to apply, please complete the WTP-ME Residential Assistant Application Form (DOC) (PDF), and submit with your Resume to wtp-me@mit.edu, ideally by FEBRUARY 1. Be sure to read the detailed job description on page 3 of the Application Form. Interviews will be scheduled as applications are received.
