Leonetti O'Connell Honors Research in Science Program Head
2017−2018 School Year
Marlborough School, an independent, college preparatory school in Los Angeles for 530 young women in grades 7-12, seeks a dynamic Program Head to join the faculty for the 2017−2018 School year.
Marlborough’s Mission defines the School as “an independent, urban day school serving a diverse group of young women.” We believe a diverse faculty is essential to the Mission of the School, for the following reasons:
- We instill confidence and cultivate leadership potential within each student and serve as role models in inspiring them to pursue their personal best.
- We arm each graduate with the skills and motivation to create meaningful connections with people throughout the nation and across the world.
- We serve as role models for our students with teaching responsibilities that extend beyond the classroom and the curriculum.
It is our responsibility to employ a diverse group of educators who exemplify excellence in teaching and leadership, and teach by example as well as by pedagogy.
The ideal candidate for this position will possess experience in science research, connections with local institutions, and excellent communication skills. The candidate will relate equally well to students, professional scientists, potential program supporters, and School colleagues. While most of the duties of the Program Head will be completed during the academic year, mentoring of students’ summer work and the associated communication with and support of mentors occurs during the summer months.
The candidate should possess at the minimum a Master’s Degree in a related field, Ph.D. preferred, and at least 3-5 years of teaching experience at the secondary level or in higher education. In addition, candidates will teach 2 science classes. The Program Head reports to the Dean of Student Research and to the Science Department Head.
