The Studio for Interrelated Media (SIM) seeks a half-time studio manager

The artists--both undergraduate and graduate students and faculty-- in SIM combine the study of many media by pursuing the representation of their ideas with the most appropriate media for each idea. The SIM curriculum is project and idea centered. SIM’s goal is to encourage students to develop experimental art forms, new directions, and unusual contexts. As such, it combines the study of many media. In SIM courses, students perform, present and discuss work and learn how to articulate their artistic ideas. The curriculum is designed to help students develop their concepts while gaining proficiency in the media necessary to realize them.

The backbone of the SIM program is the SIM Major Studio course, in which members of the program meet together, share news, collaborate, and present and critique their work. Alongside the Major Studio course, SIM offers an array of electives each semester that provide studio practice in specific skills: web art and digital distribution, video editing and production, interactive media, computer-controlled installations, dance techniques, composition and improvisation, stage lighting, interrelating art and science, performance art and spoken word. Sound art plays a large role in the SIM program. SIM students have access to an electronic sound studio that combines analog and digital recording and editing capabilities.

General Statement of Duties:

- Maintain workstations for sound and video editing.

- Maintain desktop computers (hardware and software) in the SIM Sound Studio, student lounge and in the faculty, Eventworks and Godine Family gallery management offices.

- Organize support technologies for SIM public spaces.

- Maintain database-backed, community web site.

- Train students on the equipment they are using.

- Support students using multi-media software (audio and
video editing).

- Assist with equipment purchase and maintenance.

- Assist with budget planning.

- Supervise work-study students and studio monitors.

- Perform related duties as assigned.
