You do not need to have skills in several areas. We are looking for a strong background within a given area. When filling out the application, give careful thought to each area and only indicate those areas that you would be comfortable teaching or assisting in. Although it is not required, enclosing a personal resume along with your completed application form can be helpful in assessing your background in a specialty area and doing so is recommended.
Please complete the staff application and have two reference forms sent from people who are familiar with your work (reference forms included in staff application).
