We are searching for our first full-time professional Executive Director, and anticipate filling the position before year’s end. Our first full-time Executive Director will be responsible for launching a new STEM initiative and for growing the Marconi-RCA Wireless Museum.
The Executive Director will provide the dynamic leadership necessary to sustain and grow the organization, and the candidate who is selected will play a principal role in the Center’s success. Central to the position are three interrelated elements: effective and fiscally prudent general management of the Center, direction of Marconi-RCA Wireless Museum operations, and leadership of Chatham Marconi’s STEM education programs. The Executive Director will be responsible for overall management of the organization including programs, budget, partnerships and external relations while implementing the strategies, policies and financial goals established by the Board of Directors.
Chatham Marconi Maritime Center’s operations currently reflect the region’s seasonal business fluctuation, with most museum visits occurring in the summer/fall and STEM education activities peaking in the summer. The Center desires to grow in a manner that reduces this seasonality. Expansion of STEM education programs to include school-year instruction in Cape classrooms is a key near-term focus of this growth. Longer term, as funding grows to support additional specialized STEM education and museum staff, the Executive Director’s role will commensurately evolve into general management of the Center.
Prospective candidates can find more information about Chatham Marconi Maritime Centered on our website, ChathamMarconi.org. The full Executive Director position description and instructions for applying may be directly accessed by clicking HERE.
In celebration of Henri A. Termeer’s commitment to scientific discovery and mentorship of aspiring and accomplished scientists, the MassBioEd Henri A. Termeer Biotechnology and Life Science Educator Grant recognizes dedicated life science teachers from Massachusetts schools who mentor their students in answering and more importantly, asking rich questions in the spirit of scientific excellence. The grant will provide a teacher with the opportunity to enrich their own learning and educational craft with a grant to be used toward professional development or continuing education in life science-related fields and equipment or reagents needed for innovative life science curricula.
You may nominate yourself or a colleague by submitting a 500-word essay that describes the nominee’s success in transforming life science learning through a culture of discovery and the incorporation of authentic science activities. Closing date for all nominations and applications is October 22, 2019. Applicants will be notified of their status no later than November 12, 2019. The winning applicant will be honored at the Champions for Biotechnology Education awards reception on the evening of Wednesday, November 20 from 5:30-8PM at the UMass Club on One Beacon Street in Boston.

The College Bound Program (https://tinyurl.com/bcsj2018) at Boston College is seeking to hire a science teacher to join the teaching staff starting in September of 2019. The successful candidate will co-teach with a theatre teacher in the science-theatre class section, where 7-9th grade youth will collectively write and produce performing arts pieces around social and environmental justice topics that are personally relevant to them. As a part of this process, students will be involved in (1) investigating and learning about social and environmental justice issues; (2) engaging in coding and engineering to create props, stage set, lighting and sound; and (3) developing performances that highlight stories that are important to them around a social and/or environmental justice topic of their choosing.
The ideal candidate has teaching experience in urban middle school settings and is excited to co-plan with a teacher outside of their discipline in order to bring together science and theatre practices in a cohesive manner. In addition to planning and teaching with a theatre teacher, the successful candidate will be expected to work with project staff to ensure successful program implementation.
The position is funded by a series of National Science Foundation (NSF) grants that includes a collaboration with theatre directors, playwrights, scientists, and educators in science and theatre.
College Bound consists of approximately 18 Saturdays (8:30am-12pm) during the academic year and a 3-week summer program that takes place in July. The current rate of pay is $150/day for the Saturdays during the academic year and $200/day during the summer. To learn more about the Converge Science Theatre Project, please visit:

Looking for science teacher for one afternoon a week, teaching a 3rd-4th class and a 5th-6th
class, in a nature-based independent elementary school in Royalston Massachusetts. Prefer an individual with science teacher experience, science background and teacher training. Curriculum is already developed by the school, and the right person will be mentored by the long-time science teacher. It requires a fair amount of prep. Be ready to take students out in the field regularly! No textbooks, it's all hands on, labs and observation.
For the right person, this is a great opportunity to enter the science teaching field, or to renew science teaching after an absence.
