The studio runs internships on a workshop-project model. Each intern will commit to a minimum of twelve weeks and a maximum of six months of intensive work on a single project, which will incorporate skills as varied as prototyping, iterating, drawing, model-making, business development, and more. This is based on an apprenticeship model, which is very heavy on education and skills acquisition. A small stipend will be provided but this should be considered an unpaid position.
Responsibilities include: assisting the team through multiple elements of the design process, sketching, 3d-modeling, visualizing, research, and prototyping and fabrication.
Qualifications: familiarity with 3D modeling programs (SW, Rhino, Fusion360), ability to work in the US, external funding from home institution or elsewhere, proficiency in English, and self-motivation.
