Dear Prof. Davis,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to let you know about an
exciting opportunity for students or instructors in your department to work

Center for Talented Youth (CTY) summer programs. Our current openings are
on the East and West coasts, with room and board provided for staff.

We are seeking both instructors and teaching assistants for Math Logic. For
instructors, we are looking for graduate students with teaching experience
or faculty/adjuncts. Teaching assistants are generally undergraduate or
graduate students.

I appreciate you taking the time to forward the information below to those
you think may be interested, or to your department for inclusion in a

The Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY) is seeking
applicants interested in summer employment as a *Math Logic
Instructor* or *Teaching
Assistant*. Positions are located in *Maryland, Pennsylvania, and
California*, and room and board are provided for all staff. CTY offers
challenging summer academic programs for middle and high school students
from across the country and around the world.

*Why teach for CTY?*

   - limited class size (15 students), plus an instructor and assistant for
   each class, ensures a low student-teacher ratio
   - competitive salary plus room and board

*Mathematical Logic course*

In this math course, students learn about the key concepts of logic,
including validity, soundness, consistency, and satisfiability. They
develop systems of logic in formal symbolic languages, including the
propositional calculus and first-order quantified logic. These systems
allow students to test the validity of arguments and write formal proofs
with precision. Students explore the syntax and semantics of these
languages. They then engage in metalogic: reasoning logically about a
system of logic. They examine soundness, asking whether all proofs in the
system really prove their conclusion, and completeness, considering whether
every valid conclusion can actually be proven using the rules of that

*Responsibilities of Instructors*

Instructors' core responsibilities are to plan and conduct their classes
within our guidelines, to monitor and evaluate the progress of each of
their students, and to supervise a teaching assistant.
