Working at ATDP


Faculty Positions

ATDP unites teachers who love to teach with students who want to learn. We are in constant search of high-energy, passionate instructors, co-instructors, and instructional associates (IAs) for our summer courses. While each summer's faculty cohort is generally assembled by the previous winter, specific openings may remain unfilled, and we will keep promising candidates in mind for future summers.

Interested candidates may apply through UC Berkeley's recruitment portal, here:

Teaching Assistant Internships (Secondary Division)

Teaching assistant interns in the Secondary Division are advanced students who demonstrate strong community involvement and academic leadership. Most are in high school or entering college, and many are concurrently enrolled as students in ATDP courses. Teaching assistant interns are assigned to specific courses and work with ATDP teachers to build expertise in their fields and become actively involved in creating a supportive and stimulating classroom environment. They assist teachers in the running of their classrooms, helping with tasks such as scoring quizzes and tests, photocopying materials, taking attendance, maintaining the class website, and working with students in small groups. To get the full benefit of the experience, interns should be available to participate fully in all class meetings and to meet regularly with their teachers before and during the ATDP summer program.

Teaching assistant interns will also be invited to participate in a 3-session intern seminar covering relevant topics in the field of education. They will have opportunities to connect this knowledge with their learning experiences and leadership role in the classroom.

Any returning ATDP student may apply for a teaching assistant internship. In most cases, prior experience with an ATDP class or teacher is strongly preferred, as interns help to guide current students through the experience. In some cases, teachers may refer non-ATDP students, or ATDP may consider college students with content expertise and an interest in education.

Internships are unpaid; however, a limited number of stipends will be available for experienced interns who have completed high school or who have served as teaching assistants in the past. To be eligible for a stipend, interns must also commit to full participation in the three intern seminar sessions and classroom connection activities.

The TA internship application process has closed for 2018. Thanks to all who've applied! Applicants will be notified of their status by March 30.
