STAGE Lab (Scientists, Technologists and Artists Generating Exploration) > Open call by the University of Chicago’s Institute for Molecular Engineering
STAGE – Scientists, Technologists and Artists Generating Exploration – is a laboratory within the University of Chicago’s Institute for Molecular Engineering, in which they create and develop original multimedia theatre work inspired by science and technology.
For these fellowships, the organisers are ideally looking for people with hybrid interests and skills, especially scientists who have had some theatre experience, as well as theatre artists with an interest in science.
Fellows are provided with a truly unique experience: the chance to be part of a small, exclusive program while engaging in original work under the mentorship and guidance of professionals and University of Chicago faculty. They are given a rare chance to continue their training and receive a stipend as they explore the campus and the broader Chicago community for future employment prospects and/or decide whether they wish to pursue an advanced degree. The fellowship affords numerous opportunities to acquire the professional skills and creative confidence essential to success as graduate students/postdoctoral scholars, and as professionals in academic, industry, nonprofit, government and other diverse careers of one's choosing. In today's dynamic and competitive job market, partcipation extends an advantage in attaining an advanced degree and in the job-seeking process across any field of study and practice.
The current expectation is that the stipend could range anywhere from $33,000-37,000 annually. All fellows will receive the same stipend amount, and recipients will be responsible for any taxes due. The stipend is the total funding recipients can expect.
The fellowship requires a full-time commitment. As all the work is created collaboratively on the University of Chicago’s campus, fellows are expected to reside in the Chicago area for the duration of the fellowship.
Deadline: 21 January 2019 (First interviews are held on a rolling basis; as a general rule, therefore, applications should be submitted as early as possible.)
