Subject: [NExT] Hiring Math Lab Manager

Hi everyone,


We're hiring for a position that may be of interest to some of your
students.


We are looking for a coordinator for our drop-in math tutoring center at
Salem State University. This is a full time job with about half the time
spent tutoring and the other half on managerial tasks such as hiring and
training tutors. Our last coordinator held the job for 30 years so we would
love to hire someone who has ideas on updating our Math Lab and who doesn't
see the position as a temporary job while waiting for something else.


The position requires a bachelors or masters in math (or related field)
along with tutoring experience. Please pass along the job ad to any of your
students or anyone else you think might be interested. The job ad and link
to the application form are below.


Salem State University is on the coast north of Boston (within commuting
distance of Boston via the commuter train or ferry) so it could also be
great for someone looking to solve the 2-body problem with one of the many
universities in the region.


Best,

Kathi
