Stanford Pre-Collegiate International Institutes Instructors

Position Overview

Stanford Pre-Collegiate International Institutes, part of Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies (SPCS), seeks experienced postdoctoral scholars, advanced graduate students, or adjunct faculty to teach half-day workshops to academically talented international high school students during summer at Stanford.

Program Information

Stanford Pre-Collegiate International Institutes is a residential program offering international high school students an exploratory academic program along with an overview of American university life. We also offer a rich multicultural experience, where students from different countries attend class, participate in social and recreational activities, and work on a Global Solutions project together. The program primarily takes place August 7–19, but we have several groups coming for early sessions this year. Countries that have been represented in past years include Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Cyprus, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, the Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan and the Navajo Nation.

Position Details

We are particularly interested in workshops that develop skills in problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and innovation, as well as advanced topics that would not typically be found in a high school curriculum.

The structure consists of cohorts of 15–20 students who meet in mornings and afternoons (9:00 am–11:45 am and 1:00–3:45 pm) throughout the program, with each workshop taught by a different instructor.  Each Instructor will teach different cohorts morning and/or afternoon according to instructor availability and interest, and our needs.


We pay instructors $250 per 2.75 hour session.
