Join our team

Help students have life-changing MITES experiences—and play an important role in making STEM fields more diverse, inclusive, and equitable.  We’re seeking undergraduates, graduate students, and working professionals who are energetic, thoughtful, and motivated by our mission. 
Teaching at MITES is an incredibly rewarding and enlightening experience. It is truly a gift to accompany our students on their journey of discovering who they are as students, scholars, scientists, and members of their communities.

Their creativity, curiosity, and excitement for STEM makes it a thrill to work alongside them as their teacher. Not only have they taught me about their interests and passions in science and engineering, I have also learned so much about teaching and mentoring the next generation of STEM leaders. Serving as an Instructor for MITES is an incredible experience that I encourage all to pursue.”

Make a difference you can see

We accept applications year-round for a variety of positions, including part-time, remote, and salaried positions.  When you join the MITES team, you’ll be making a difference you can see. Through each of our programs, students develop the high-level science and engineering skills and confidence they need to succeed in college and beyond. They also become part of a supportive, inspiring community of peers, friends and mentors—and you’re on the front lines of their transformation. 


Representation matters 

We encourage staff  those from backgrounds historically underrepresented in STEM to apply—to help students see people like themselves as successful professionals, leaders, and guides in STEM. 

Our staff also have a wide variety of educational and professional experiences and range from undergraduates to tenured professors. Our team includes STEM experts, but we teach humanities, too, and value diverse perspectives. Many staff members are MITES alumni who want to share the benefits they received through our programs with the next generation.

MITES instructors, students, and staff laugh together, learn from each other, and share a collective interest in the power of STEM to make the world better.

The community is truly invigorating. The dedication of the staff to this work makes me proud to be a part of MITES.”
