Instructor

Are you passionate about science? Do you want to help kids learn to love it too? If you have an undergraduate degree in a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) field and have, or are pursuing, an advanced degree in STEM, apply to become a Science from Scientists instructor. New hires receive training from existing instructors before leading classes on their own, therefore teaching experience—while an advantage—is not required. To apply, please click on the green button and fill out the application form before emailing your resume to jobs@sciencefromscientists.org.                                                             Apply

Due to the resources invested in training, and need for continuity in program delivery, candidates must be able to commit to teaching for at least one full school year. The full year may consist of either the fall and spring semesters of the same academic year, or spring of one year and fall of the following year.
