Job Description

QuantumCamp is looking for a high school physics curriculum writer to build a course on the theory and applications of electromagnetism. 

At QuantumCamp, we build science curriculum by contemplating how scientists truly acquire knowledge and advance their field. What experiments and activities are necessary to discover a new idea? This is the question that drives our curriculum design.

OVERVIEW THE ROLE
Course: Electromagnetism
Estimated initial contract duration: 1 month (note: contract could extend and expand in scope after completion of a first course)
Estimated hours per week: 30
Requisite degree: Ph.D. in physics or similar field

Note: We are looking to hire and begin as soon as possible

SPECIFIC ROLES

  1. Create a full lab-centered course at an advanced high school level on the science of Electromagnetism, which guides learners to a deep understanding of EM fundamentals and EM applications in signaling and communications.
  2. Develop and write the individual lesson plans. 
  3. Build a scope for at least 5 end-of-unit projects on the various sub-domains of EM. 
  4. Design an assignment rubric, in concert with QuantumCamp educators, for evaluating learner understanding of electromagnetism as presented in the end-of-unit projects.
  5. Contribute to making an educational and societal impact in the United States and beyond by connecting humans to the wonderful science which governs our amazing universe. 
  6. Report on progress daily to the QuantumCamp project lead.

EXPECTATIONS AND ATTRIBUTES

You love science, math, education, and history! You are knowledgeable, and energetic. You have experience in the classroom. You are continually seeking to design better labs and better explanations. You are highly organized.

Do all of the following describe you?

  • You are highly organized and meet deadlines.
  • Your science acumen permits you to fluently discuss and write about the science of electromagnetism. You find yourself watching youtube videos on EM in your free time! 
  • You know the key experiments, which eventually led to Maxwell’s wonderful equations.
  • You can design lessons and experiments facilitating understanding of the now ubiquitous applications of EM for Wifi, remote control, and associated forms of communication and signaling.
  • You enjoy tinkering with devices and prototyping hands-on ways to make complex ideas understandable to a new learner. 
  • You are a scholar in the history of physics. 
  • You are great writer.
  • You respect exquisite formatting of documents.

If so, we would love to hear from you!

REQUIRED EXPERIENCE - Ph.D in physics or similar field

APPLICATION PROCESS - Reply with a cover letter and resume.

Business Overview

Our Story

QuantumCamp is a growing school enterprise with a core mission of delivering amazing, hands-on math and science courses to kids in three platforms: QC In-School Labs, Homeschool Hubs, and Summer Camps.    

Schools around the world are partnering with QuantumCamp and directly incorporating our unparalleled library of science and math courses.    

In QC courses, students forge their own profound connection to our universe through carefully constructed lab sequences, which facilitate hands-on journeys through amazing math and science ideas.   

In this radical approach, we place kids in history, just before new knowledge was discovered. We set them free pursuing this new knowledge for themselves. All of science and math, then, becomes theirs. Each student is a shared owner of all the profound ideas in math and science.   

QuantumCamp has built 54 courses spanning 12 grade levels totaling over 1,600 hours of hands-on content, each of which is an arc of experiments and activities which draw students into the grandeur of an idea to be discovered.
