Science Camps Staff Openings


The FHSU Sternberg Museum Science Camps program is hiring the following staff positions for summer 2021. The Science Camp experience provides students with valuable perspective on science communities, careers, and professional skills. We also strongly emphasize communication, problem solving, collaboration, leadership, and healthy community-building. Instructors work with the Camps Director David Levering to develop and implement their respective curricula in following the mission and culture of the Sternberg Science Camps program. 

Our students come from a variety of regions throughout the US, with some international participants as well. They are eager to learn all you can teach them about the subject of the camp. As a result, they typically move through content very quickly, with frequent in-depth questions about the subject matter. Successful instructor and teaching assistant applicants must be able to demonstrate an advanced knowledge of concepts, techniques, and topics in the respective fields of each camp.

We encourage qualified individuals (especially graduate students) from demographic groups underrepresented in the earth and life sciences to apply. Our students are more diverse every year, and we value students learning from diverse voices.

Sternberg Museum Science Camps are unable to assist with international employment paperwork or logistics. All applicants must be able to pass a U.S. criminal background check, which will be administered by Fort Hays State University. The application deadline is Friday, January 22nd.

We have cancelled all in-person camps for 2021. All camps listed below with open staff positions are virtual programs. If you have questions about how we operate the online camps after reading information provided in the position opening announcements linked below, please contact us at
