The Research, Teaching and Learning group in Information, Technology and Consulting ([email protected]) and the Neukom Institute have created an opportunity for new Dartmouth graduates to build development experience with virtual and augmented reality. This one-year, full-time, paid position includes benefits, professional development, and access to a wide variety of cutting-edge Data Experiences and Visualizations Studio equipment. Applications are due March 29, 2020 for first consideration.

ELIGIBILITY

The fellowship is open to recent Dartmouth graduates. Please note: candidates must have completed their Dartmouth degree (graduate or undergraduate) before July 1, 2020.

COMPENSATION, BENEFITS, AND TENURE

This is a one-year, full-time, paid fellowship with Dartmouth benefits. The term of employment is July 1, 2020, to June 30, 2021.

DESCRIPTION

The Data Experiences and Visualizations Studio (DEV Studio) is looking for artists and coders who have a background in some aspect of virtual or augmented reality development. The XR Fellow will spend one year working in the Studio, helping develop faculty research and teaching projects, supporting student use of the Studio’s equipment, and exploring the possibilities created by technology that mixes the physical world with the virtual.

Strong applicants will have gained an understanding of at least some of the many skills required to develop XR projects during their time at Dartmouth, whether it be 3D modeling, programming in C#, or HCI research. While a broad background looking at several of these areas is desirable, it is more important that the applicant demonstrate a combination of applied background in one area with a willingness and capability to learn others as they collaborate on projects throughout the year.

The XR Fellow will spend time researching problems to better understand and solve them under the mentorship of experienced members of the [email protected] team. In turn, the XR Fellow will provide mentoring and supervision to student workers in the Studio as well, helping them learn basics of XR development. Strong written and verbal communication skills are a requirement of the position, as is the ability to be self-directed and highly innovative.
