CANADA/USA MATHCAMP is looking for graduate students as leaders for its 2011
session,

July 3 to August 7, 2011
Reed College, Portland, OR

***************************************************************************
If you know anyone who may be interested, please forward this email to them.
****************************************************************************
*

*"Becoming a mentor at Mathcamp was the single best professional choice I
made in grad school. I say this not because it was truckloads of fun, a
pleasant break from the research routine, and the start of some wonderful
friendships, though it was all that and more. The simple joy of working with
amazingly bright and talented high school students each summer renewed my
passion for mathematics when it sagged at the end of the academic year, and
reminded me why it was worth while to keep working through all of the doubts
and difficulties on the way to my thesis.*

*At Mathcamp, I learned to give lectures that are entertaining as well as
precise and informative. No seminar audience asks tougher questions than
Mathcampers. Once you can hold the attention and respect of twenty
Mathcampers for a full hour on a sunny summer afternoon, you have nothing to
fear from any seminar or colloquium audience in the country."
* *--Sam Payne, Assistant Professor at Yale and former Mathcamp mentor*

This summer, we invite you to:

* Be a leader in a vibrant community of talented and enthusiastic
high-school students and energetic faculty.
* Teach and learn what most interests you, in an atmosphere of freedom and
excitement.
* Be a friend and mentor to 110 marvelous kids.
* Be an architect of an experience that those 110 kids will cherish for
years.

The goal of Canada/USA Mathcamp is to provide an environment where talented
high-school students can interact with world-class mathematicians, explore
advanced topics in mathematics, sharpen their problem-solving skills, and
find a true intellectual peer group. The students, mostly between the ages
of 15 and 18, with a few exceptions as young as 13, come from all over the
United States, Canada, and the world. They are taught for the full five
weeks by graduate students and professors from the continent's top colleges
and universities, and a number of researchers are invited to give guest
lectures or lecture series. (This year we'll have John Conway, Avi
Wigderson, Moon Duchin, Sarah Koch, Jim Belk, Allan Adams, and Rebecca Saxe,
among others.)

We are looking for graduate students in pure and applied mathematics and
closely related disciplines who love (and are good at) both math and
teaching, and who share our enthusiasm for mentoring bright students. The
role of the graduate student mentors at Mathcamp is not a typical one: they
are not only active teachers and counselors, but are the camp's primary
leaders and organizers, helping to set the tone for the entire program.
There is no set curriculum: each mentor conceives and plans his or her own
classes. Beyond academics, mentors help to cultivate the rich life of the
camp by planning activities, setting camp policy, and serving as residential
counselors -- essentially running the camp.

The ideal candidate for this job must be ready to think of her- or himself
as a partner, not an employee. We seek interesting and creative
personalities to help bring the camp alive (and make it an exciting place to
work). Mentors must be willing to take responsibility and display immediate
initiative when the situation demands it; but they must also be good at
communicating and working with others to achieve broader goals. Flexibility
and tolerance for a certain degree of chaos are a must. Since women and
minority students often face a shortage of role models in mathematics, we
are especially eager to recruit mentors from these groups.

We may also be interested in hiring one mentor with experience in
Olympiad-level problem solving as a problem-solving instructor. As with
every mentor, this instructorship includes the opportunity to design and
teach classes in topics of interest (but, for this special position, with an
orientation towards problem solving when possible). Additionally, the
problem-solving instructor creates and coordinates the weekly team
problem-solving competition.

If you think you may be interested in being a Mathcamp mentor this summer,
please contact Eric Wofsey (waffle@math.harvard.edu) for more information
about the job and how to apply. If you are interested in being a problem
solving instructor, please specify this in your email. Equal consideration
will be given to all applications received by Tuesday, March 1, 2011.

Thanks for your interest in Mathcamp!

- Eric Wofsey (waffle@math.harvard.edu) for the Mathcamp 2011 Hiring
Commmittee
