[Job Posting]: Callysto Creator

The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (http://www.pims.math.ca/) invites applicants for the position of Callysto Creator. Positions are open to undergraduate and graduate students at multiple Canadian universities and are available immediately. Our initial campaign offers 40 open positions with another group to be announced in April.

With investment from the Government of Canada’s CanCODE program (https://www.canada.ca/en/innovation-science-economic-development/news/2018/01/giving_young_canadiansthedigitalskillsneededforjobsofthefuture.html), PIMS, in partnership with Cybera, will convene (http://www.cybera.ca/news-and-events/news/building-canadas-digital-generation/) collaborations connecting educators from postsecondary and K–12 institutions to build open educational resources leveraging Jupyter (http://jupyter.org/). The project is called Callysto in honour of the Jovian satellite discovered by Galileo in 1610.

Undergraduate and graduate students working as Callysto Creators will collaborate with K–12 and postsecondary instructors to help build content and code mostly using HTML, JavaScript and Python. These positions are open to students in all disciplines including social sciences, humanities, natural sciences, as well as mathematics, statistics, and computer sciences.

These positions will be paid hourly (range: $23 per hour to $36 per hour) and will initially require a part-time commitment of up to 20 hours per week. Positions may become full-time over the summer 2018 period.
