The Jacobs Institute was founded on the idea of creating a cross-disciplinary design community, providing hands-on experience and approach to design education. Our faculty, staff, and student workers come from a myriad of individual backgrounds that contribute to the dynamic culture of Jacobs Hall and our Makerspace as a whole. Each member of our small team works closely with one another, making Jacobs Hall a true collaborative experience from behind the scenes to the classroom.
If you’re interested in being part of what we are creating at the Jacobs Institute, we encourage you to explore the opportunities listed below.
Our lecturer pool offers candidates with design expertise and a passion for teaching an opportunity to mentor students at the intersection of design and technology and in dialogue with the resources of the Jacobs Institute. Those with expertise in Computer Science and User Interface Design are particularly encouraged to apply, though we welcome applications relevant to all aspects of our curriculum.
From working in our Makerspace to graphic design, there are a number of ways students can get involved at Jacobs Hall. Visit the Student Roles page for a full list of opportunities, including information on GSI and Reader Roles, current open positions, and how to apply.
