FT 3D Lab Supervisor openings at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design Milwau­kee Insti­tute of Art and Design

Posted on

The MIAD 3d Lab has open­ings for year-round, full-time, bene­fit­ted 3D Lab Super­vi­sor posi­tions. We are looking for creative thinkers and problem solvers who enjoy learn­ing and teach­ing in the context of mate­r­ial prac­tices and processes. We are looking to fill these posi­tions as soon as possi­ble, but will continue to accept appli­ca­tions until the posi­tions have been filled.

The MIAD 3D Lab is a nexus for cross-polli­na­tion in our college, a place where students marry concept with prac­tice through educa­tion in tradi­tional and exper­i­men­tal mate­r­ial fabri­ca­tion tech­niques and processes. Our lab supports students at all levels, in prac­tice areas that range from tradi­tional and exper­i­men­tal studio prac­tices includ­ing processes related to paint­ing, print­mak­ing, sculp­ture and instal­la­tion, to prac­tices rooted in design fields that include indus­trial design, commu­ni­ca­tion design, furni­ture, inte­rior archi­tec­ture and design. The facil­ity houses a full range of tools and equip­ment for mate­r­ial fabri­ca­tion, forming and explo­ration that includes a 4x8 CNC machine, verti­cal mill, vacuum former, wood lathes, band­saws, join­t­ers, planers, mortis­ers, sanding machines in a variety of config­u­ra­tions, cabinet and sliding table saws, as well as a robust selec­tion of powered and manual hand tools. 

The 3D Lab Super­vi­sors are the gateway to the 3D Lab for students; we train and certify all incom­ing MIAD students in safety, basic wood­work­ing tech­niques and best prac­tices. We also help to facil­i­tate upper level student work and instruc­tion in advanced wood­work­ing and other tradi­tional and exper­i­men­tal processes. As prac­ti­tion­ers and educa­tors, we work to support each studen­t’s growth and devel­op­ment during their work and engage­ment with the lab. We are looking for creative thinkers and problem solvers who enjoy learn­ing and teach­ing in the context of mate­r­ial prac­tices and processes. We are looking to fill these posi­tions as soon as possi­ble, but will continue to accept appli­ca­tions until the posi­tions have been filled.

The posi­tions are year-round, full-time, bene­fit­ted posi­tions. Please see the job posting at the link below for more detailed infor­ma­tion on the posi­tion and application requirements.
