Astronomy and Physics Associate Position

Summer Saturday program seeks instructor in Astronomy and Physics for grades 5 to 9.  This is a temporary position.  This program is organized and run by an unincorporated non-profit association operating within a faith-based non-profit community serving a small group of elementary, middle and high school students in a small community in Connecticut.

Knowledge of current topics in astronomy, particularly astrophysics, and research experience is a plus, as well as access to planetariums or other resources students may use beyond the classroom. Technological integration into the classroom is also highly desired.  We are able to utilize computers and other technology in the classroom so the more technologically inclined one may be, the better.  This program is geared toward teaching students at an advanced level.  We aim to challenge our students.  Recent graduates are welcome to apply.

The instructor will be needed for one hour of instruction and thirty minutes of individual tutoring availability after the one hour of instruction on Saturdays, beginning June 1, 2013 through September 7, 2013.  Please note that this is a temporary position.  The pay is $100 per week, paid each Saturday.  Lunch is also provided.  Depending on the circumstances, transportation costs may be eligible for reimbursement.
