MIT will not host or sponsor any in-person K-12 student programming during the summer of 2020. The Institute is encouraging summer programs to be delivered in an online format. In adherence to these new guidelines, the OEOP will not offer MITES in the summer of 2020, and will expand the MOSTEC program. With no in-person K-12 events happening at MIT during the months of June, July, and August, we are still assessing the possibility of an in-person conference for MOSTEC 2020 later in the year.
We are deeply saddened that we will not be able to offer MITES this year, a program with more than 40 years of history at the Institute. We will sincerely miss engaging with students on MIT’s campus, but doing our part for public health and safety is our highest priority.
At the same time, we are encouraged and excited to continue to provide a proven, meaningful academic experience for students through our MOSTEC program. The timing of this policy change around K-12 summer programs will allow us to focus on supporting even more students through online engagement.
The expanded MOSTEC program will require the talent and experience of a dedicated instructional team. If you have already started or submitted an application via staffapp.mit.edu and indicated you were interested in only MITES positions, we sincerely appreciate your partnership with the OEOP and hope that you will consider the available opportunities with MOSTEC. We encourage you to update your application to reflect any change of preferences and ask that you email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know about the specific changes.
Please note: if you already applied for a MOSTEC position (instructor, program facilitator, and/or online facilitator), there is no need to update your application.
The StaffApp website manages applications for temporary instructional, administrative, and mentoring staff positions for the OEOP programs: MITES, MOSTEC, and SEED Academy. There are a variety of positions available including instructional and administrative roles. There are both full time and part time roles, some of which are residential and include housing at MIT.
The OEOP will review applications as they are received within reviewing periods and invite qualified candidates for interviews on a rolling basis until all positions have been filled. Please see the StaffApp FAQs for more information about the staff application process.
We are seeking program staff applicants with a wide variety of backgrounds in science, engineering, math, and humanities disciplines, ranging from rising college sophomores to experienced professionals with advanced degrees. Previous teaching experience is a strong plus but not required for all positions.
Our program staff members serve as teachers, mentors and sounding boards for our highly motivated students. They play a significant role in our students’ lasting memories of our programs.
Our program staff members have exciting, challenging, and important roles, and we value them deeply. Along with competitive compensation, benefits for our staff members can include on-campus housing, catered meals, and exciting program field trips.
