I hope this message finds you well. I am writing you to let you know about an excellent opportunity for undergraduate students, graduate students, instructors, or adjuncts in your department who may be interested in summer employment as an economics teaching assistant or instructor with the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY) summer programs. CTY offers challenging academic programs for highly talented elementary, middle, and high school students from across the country and around the world. Information regarding our summer programs can be found at www.cty.jhu.edu/jobs/summer<https://goo.gl/GkpQW5>.

You likely received a message from a colleague of mine earlier this academic year with information about our programs. As summer fast approaches, I wanted to provide some more targeted information about the current openings we have in case colleagues of yours were looking for employment over the summer. I appreciate you taking the time to forward the information below to undergraduate and graduate students and instructors/adjuncts in your department, and posting this announcement on your job board.

While the information in the flyer below will spell out general details, including our desired qualifications, I wanted to post here the current instructor openings:
-          First session Instructor, The Mathematics of Money-Haverford, PA (Haverford College)
-          Second session Instructor, Macroeconomics & the Global Economy-Carlisle, PA (Dickinson College)

And our current TA openings:
-          Fundamentals of Microeconomics
o   Carlisle, PA (both sessions)
o   Seattle, WA (both sessions)
o   Saratoga Springs, NY (second session)
-          Macroeconomics & the Global Economy
o   Saratoga Springs, NY (first session)
-          Probability & Game Theory
o   Carlisle, PA (both sessions)
o   Los Angeles, CA (second session)
o   Saratoga Springs, NY (both sessions)

o   Santa Cruz, CA (both sessions)

Additional positions and courses may become available and be filled as the summer continues to approach, but this should give you an idea of what to expect. Interested candidates should apply at cty.jhu.edu/jobs/summer<https://goo.gl/GkpQW5>.

As discussed below: for instructor candidates, we are seeking individuals who have experience as instructor of record. For advanced undergraduates and grad students seeking additional experience in the classroom, we recommend TA spots. The faculty-to-student ratio is very small in our programs and the students are quite advanced in their learning. It is a great opportunity for pedagogical practice. We provide room & board as well as competitive salaries, but do not assist with travel to and from the site in question.

Finally, please note: Applicants who are currently on an F-1 student visa must have an EAD card valid for the dates of employment or be able to obtain CPT authorization from their international office.

Kind regards,
Jack Huguley
