June 21 to July 26, 2008

SummerMath is seeking several undergraduates or recent graduates to serve as Residential and Teaching Assistants (RA/TAs) or Assistant Head Resident and a college graduate to serve as the Head Resident for the upcoming summer program. Each of our positions qualifies as an academic internship for Mount Holyoke College students, and the successful candidate may arrange to be an intern through the Mount Holyoke College Internship Office. SummerMath also qualifies as a pre-practicum for the Education program.

SummerMath presents an innovative approach to mathematics for high school age women. Approximately 50 students from across the country spend four weeks on the Mount Holyoke Campus exploring mathematics in a very close-knit, diverse community. Our residence and teaching staff members are vital to the successful functioning of our community as they provide links between the dormitory and academic parts of the program. Assistants gain valuable experience through our one-week staff preparation week prior to the program and by working closely with the staff on residential programming and teaching.

Candidates with residential counseling experience in multicultural environments are particularly sought. Demonstrated leadership and listening skills, ability to work on a team, stamina, sense of humor, and interest in working in a creative atmosphere are desired. Pay includes five weeks room and board and a stipend.

Applicants may apply for one of the following positions:

  • Residential Assistant/Fundamental Mathematical Concepts Teaching Assistant
  • Residential Assistant/Computer Programming in Logo Teaching Assistant
  • Assistant Head Resident
  • Head Resident

To apply, submit a cover letter, including your reasons for wanting to work with our program and indicating which position is desired, a resume, including relevant experience, and two letters of reference, one speaking to relevant academic skills and the other speaking to residential experience and/or ability to work effectively with people.

Applications are due Friday, February 8, 2008 to:
