STAGE - Scientists, Technologists, and Artists Generating Exploration - is a laboratory within the University of Chicago's nascent Institute for Molecular Engineering (IME) that is devoted to collaborations among scientists and artists.
STAGE is offering fellowships to work collaboratively on the creation and development of its original theatrical works inspired by science and technology. This opportunity is open to those who have completed undergraduate or graduate degrees, preferably within the last two years. Fellowships include a stipend, and while there is no guarantee, are typically for one-to-two years, subject to satisfactory performance and in compliance with University policies.
Ideally, we are looking for people with hybrid interests and skills, i.e., scientists who have had some theatre experience and/or theatre people with experience/a strong interest in science and/or technology. We are especially seeking candidates willing to actively exercise their skills in STAGE's non-traditional theatre-making process.
The deadline for fall 2019 fellowships is January 21, 2019. First interviews are held on a rolling basis. As a general rule, therefore, applications should be submitted as early as possible.
