Job Description

The Vagelos Computational Science Center (CSC) is hiring Computing Fellows for the Spring 2022 semester. Computing Fellows assist in the development of computing-related workshops and other resources and work with specific courses or programs, with a particular focus on helping to develop computational projects and in-class activities. Applicants should have an interest in peer teaching, some experience coding, and most importantly, a strong willingness to learn. Successful candidates will be "attached" to a Barnard course with a computational component, assist faculty and students, and/or develop a workshop related to the topic of the course with assistance from the CSC.

Requirements

Candidates must meet the following required qualifications:
  • Interest in peer teaching.
  • Capability in coding, demonstrated through completion of Advanced Programming or an alternate upper-level coding course. We are open to applicants who demonstrate capability in other ways, such as through significant independent projects.
  • Ability to communicate clearly.
  • Must be a currently enrolled student in good standing.
Additional preferred qualifications include:
  • Experience with Python or R are particularly welcome.
  • Teaching experience in coding or willingness to learn.
  • Peer teaching experience at a collegiate level.

We particularly encourage applications from juniors and experienced sophomores, so that they may continue as Computing Fellows in future years. To apply, please submit a single combined filed containing a cover letter describing your interest in the position and your resume. The job posting is listed under Barnard Works, Job ID 14300.
