Jobs & Internships


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.

Please check our Teaching & Learning newsfeed for updates on current openings.

Interested candidates may apply through UC Berkeley's recruitment portal, here: Note: The link above needs to be updated periodically—if the recruitment page indicates that applications are closed, please let us know. We accept applications year-round.

If you are currently a student at UC Berkeley, please inquire with our office directly.


Educational Internships

TA Interns

Teacher Assistant interns 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. Teacher 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.

Any returning ATDP student may apply for a teacher 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 returning interns and high school graduates.

ATDP internships are available in both the Elementary and Secondary Division programs going forward. On-site Elementary Division courses will be held at a West Contra Costa USD school (Richmond/Pinole area) – LOCATION TBA. On-site Secondary Division courses are held at UC Berkeley. Online Secondary Division courses are held on Zoom.
