Visual and Digital Media Mellon Fellow opportunity
As part of Project VIS, Skidmore College invites applications for a 2.5-year Mellon Fellowship in Visual Communication and Documentary Arts to embed best practices in design and technology into a campus-wide initiative to promote visual literacy and documentary storytelling.
The fellow will teach (7–9 credit hours/year) in at least one of the following areas: film/video, interactive or communication design; be a resource for product management and direction of creative scholarship; support a summer Storyteller's Institute and the Documentary and Visual Form Center; and promote interdisciplinary collaboration and outreach.
We seek an energetic and collaborative partner who expresses a strong affinity for visual communication across a broad range of disciplines, is committed to community-based work that engages cultural and political realities through a personal point of view and integrates both creativity and critical inquiry in their work.
An ideal candidate will demonstrate competency in computer-related design, digital
visual communication and storytelling, problem-solving skills, high standards and
the capacity to work well with others. Interested? For qualifications and requirements, see the job announcement at Human Resources.
