The OHS brings together academically talented and motivated students from around the world into a vibrant intellectual community with teachers who are passionate about their disciplines, accomplished in their fields, and above all, dedicated to teaching. In the live discussion seminar, a cornerstone of the OHS education, students and teachers engage in a rigorous academic program that develops the critical reasoning and argumentation skills essential for success at the collegiate level and beyond. Beyond the classroom, students and instructors continue to collaborate in a dynamic school community, centered on student clubs, activities, competitions, and student publications. Starting in the summer of 2019, Stanford OHS offices will be located on the university’s Redwood City campus

Stanford OHS seeks a dynamic instructor to teach high-school level mathematics and/or computer science. You will meet with each section of students twice a week throughout the academic year on a college-style schedule to engage in discussion of the course material. You will be encouraged to bring your advanced subject-level expertise to the class, challenging students in ways not typically found in high school.

Your responsibilities include:

Prepare for class, lead synchronous online discussion sections, hold office hours, and assist students in using course materials. Monitor student progress, give feedback, grade assessments, and discuss performance with students, parents, Division Head, counseling staff, and administrative staff. Assist with development and revision of curricula. Develop and teach residential summer courses. Serve as advisor to student clubs and activities and participate in OHS community events. Serve on committees within OHS.

To be successful in this position, you will bring:

Master's degree (or equivalent course work) in mathematics, computer science, or related discipline. Ph.D. in mathematics, computer science, or related discipline strongly preferred. At least one year experience teaching at the high school or college level, or equivalent. Eligibility to work in the U.S. (Visa sponsorship is not available for this position.) Facility with teaching traditional and online courses. Proficiency using computer applications.
