Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) Wanted

The MSU Gifted and Talented Program seeks dedicated and dynamic subject matter experts who possess exceptional pedagogical knowledge and interpersonal, verbal, and written communication skills. While we give preference to teachers who are knowledgeable about and experienced in working with identified gifted and talented children (K-12), we will consider those who are exceptional, well qualified subject matter experts and are willing to learn about the gifted and talented population.

We engage in a rigorous hiring process that includes having applicants complete a comprehensive application. If the submitted application meets or exceeds standards, an in-person interview is scheduled. As part of the in-person interview, a candidate's portfolio is reviewed.

Applications are being accepted for the MSU Gifted and Talented Onsite, Offsite, and Online Programs. The Gifted & Talented Onsite Program at Montclair State University offers Saturday and Sunday weekend courses during the Fall and Spring terms, and Summer weekday courses for gifted and talented students in grades K (rising 1st graders) - 11 (rising 12th graders) on the campus of Montclair State University in Montclair, NJ. The Gifted and Talented Offsite Program (NEW!) brings programs and services directly to youth and educators at schools/school districts who partner with us. Our revitalized Online Program will have more course offerings in the upcoming summer, fall, and spring terms.

Although certain activities are typical, tasks and responsibilities can and do change according to each day’s needs and may vary from classroom to classroom.  In addition, program assistants will be responsible for other duties as assigned by the Gifted & Talented Office staff and administrators. Program Assistants are required to have CPR certification. Applicants must have successfully completed at least one year of college, and maintain at least a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.
