Become a 2019-2020 Science Education Fellow!

Applications due July 26th; position starts August 19th
July 17, 2019

Science Explorers is now recruiting a full-time Science Education Fellow to support students and teachers in two Chicago Public School (CPS) high schools during the 2019-20 school year.

This program, currently in its third full year, aims to build science skills and school success by strengthening academic attitudes and behaviors – like academic confidence, perseverance, and study habits – and support individual subject tutoring in freshman biology. To accomplish this, Fellows build deep, academically-focused relationships with small groups of ninth grade students. These groups meet twice a week during the school day for the entire academic year. Fellows also support science teachers and provide tutoring before and after school.

Strong candidates will have a college degree in science or engineering and a passion for social justice and improving the life outcomes of Chicago youth. Fellows must work well as part of a flexible team and have previous experience working with K-12 students. They will receive training and support from both Science in Society and CPS staff, gaining valuable experience and professional development in urban education and science teaching.

Fellows positions are full-time and benefits eligible for the full academic year, August 2019 - June 2020.
