America’s Test Kitchen is looking for a Senior Editor with the right mix of creativity, skills, experience, and passion to help us build our growing Kids business—which includes a line of cookbooks, picture books, and board books; a monthly subscription box program; and a free website for kids (and their grown-ups) full of recipes, activities, quizzes, and other curriculum at the intersection of food and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math). We’re on a mission to empower the next generation of cooks and we want to do that across all mediums with equal levels of creativity and craft.
Every day, you’ll work closely with our team of editors and test cooks, going to (virtual, for now!) recipe tastings and activity testings, figuring out creative ways to translate complex ideas into educational and engaging content for kids ages 5 and up.
You’ll be a part of a highly collaborative team full of humble experts. No one is too good for any task. We all roll up our sleeves and do what it takes to get the job done. Bring your ideas, leave your ego at the door. If you’re a detail-oriented editor, an engaging writer, and have a passion for bringing learning to life, this job may be for you.

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:
