Randall Library seeks to hire students for its new, grant-funded Digital Makerspace Student Fellows program. We are currently seeking to fill two semester-long openings for the fall 2019 semester. Undergraduate and graduate students from any discipline are encouraged to apply, including but not limited to disciplines such as digital arts, chemistry, geosciences, and computer science. DMS Student Fellows will be expected to assist the Digital Makerspace Coordinator with creating and developing programing, events, and instructional material. The stipend for this position is $1,500 per semester per student fellow, or approximately 9hrs/week at $10/hr. Both positions are open until filled. The interviewing process is expected to commence in early August. Ideally, both student fellows will be ready and available to start working when classes begin in the fall.
