Dear Dr. Canetti,

I hope this message finds you well. I work for Johns Hopkins 
University’s Center for Talented Youth, and I’m writing because we are 
currently looking for instructors for the summer to teach a cryptology 
course to mathematically talented middle and high school students. Given 
your research interests include cryptography, I wanted to ask if you 
would be able to pass along this job announcement to any graduate 
students or faculty you think might be interested. We also have an 
additional teaching assistant opening for our advanced cryptology 
course, which also may be of interest to graduate or undergraduate students.

Our summer courses are three weeks long, making it easy for instructors 
to fit in teaching for us with their summer research or conference 
commitments. We have openings in Los Angeles and upstate New York for 
cryptology instructors, with room and board provided on campus for 

I appreciate you taking the time to forward the information below to 
anyone you think may be interested in this instructor position. I can 
also provide more information about the available teaching assistant 
position (located in Pennsylvania with room & board provided) if you 
would like that information as well. Thank you for your assistance.

Kind regards,

Frannie Worek
