Join Us for Summer 2018!
Nearly 2,500 high school students will attend programs through Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies (SPCS) this summer. By serving as role models, mentors, and leaders, all summer staff—residential, instructional, and support—play an integral role in the experience of each participant and help to create the positive, challenging, and supportive experience that SPCS programs are known worldwide for providing.
Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies is seeking undergraduates, recent graduates, and graduate students for our residential and support position. We also seek advanced graduate students, postdocs, advanced degree holders, lecturers, or professionals for our instructional positions.
To find out how you can work for Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies this summer, explore the many employment opportunities available below.
Residential staff members live in residences with participants, and as a team oversee all aspects of a program. All residential positions provide excellent weekly pay which includes on-campus housing and dining. These positions require a full-time commitment for the duration of the program. Residential staff may not hold other jobs, take classes, or conduct research while working for Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies.
Our instructors are advanced graduate students, postdocs, advanced degree holders, lecturers, or professionals. We seek instructors who are enthusiastic about their subjects and excited to teach bright, motivated students. For many, this is one of the most rewarding teaching experiences of their professional lives.
In addition to our residential summer programs at Stanford, we also hire instructors for our Honors Academies, intensive two-week, non-residential day programs created in partnership with top schools in Singapore, Hong Kong, and other locations. These programs offer local students (elementary through high school) at select locations challenging and engaging courses offered in May through August each year. Honors Academies are wonderful opportunities for instructors interested in teaching and travel.
Please note that Instructors are hired ONLY for the following programs: Pre-Collegiate Summer Institutes, OHS High School program, Honors Academies, and Stanford International Institutes.
A limited number of Drop-In Teaching Assistants are hired on a part-time basis for Pre-Collegiate Summer Institutes, OHS Summer Program, the Summer Humanities Institute, and SUMaC.
Part- and full-time operations positions ensure that our participants have a fulfilling and safe experience.
