Subject: Jacobs Institute Position Available

Shop Leaders,

Jacobs Institute is looking for a design specialist, message from Joey below:

The Jacobs Institute is currently hiring for a full-time design Specialist to mentor student in our maker spaces, and help build out our CAD/CAM program;

Design Specialist

The Design Specialist team is made up of an eclectic group of artists, engineers, and educators. Each specialist has an area of expertise (electronics, 3D printing, carpentry, CAD/CAM, metal working) but cross-training and team collaboration are expected. As we enter our third year at UCB, we have a well-established operations system for training new users on a wide variety of rapid prototyping equipment but are always expanding, and offering new workshops. This position is primarily responsible for mentorship of the students who use our space, but could also be tasked with creating new content that incorporates cutting-edge technologies and processes. We consider a healthy shop culture a high priority and emphasize the role the technical team has in the creation of that environment.
