Canada/USA Mathcamp – Graduate Student Mentors

Canada/USA Mathcamp (www.mathcamp.org) is looking for math graduate students as Mentors for its summer 2021 session:

When: June 28 to August 12, 2021

Where: Online Compensation: $5,100 plus expenses

Application Deadline: February 28, 2021

For more information and to apply, visit: http://www.mathcamp.org/mentor/

Mathcamp brings a diverse and talented group of 120 marvelous teenagers together each summer to explore advanced topics in mathematics and find a true peer group. The Mentor job is a hybrid between a teaching position and a camp counselor role.  

As a Mentor at Mathcamp, you get an amazing teaching experience: there is no set curriculum, so you create your own classes and teach what most interests you—from group theory to projective geometry to voting theory—in an atmosphere of freedom and excitement. You'll have support from master teachers, and you'll work with students who are exceptionally smart and engaged. Mentors are also the camp's primary leaders and organizers, wearing many hats: running informal activities, setting organizational policy, and bringing to life the "camp" side of Mathcamp. It is both an intense and immersive six weeks: a lot of work, but also extremely rewarding.

Strong candidates for this role are typically PhD students in pure or applied mathematics. Those with a similar background in advanced mathematics and teaching are welcome to contact us about applying to be faculty. It is important to us to hire and support a diverse staff who serve as role models to our students.
