Flexibility: Adapt to project constraints with proactive solutions; work comfortably and productively on a range of projects from grant-based R&D to projects for external clients; work collaboratively with exhibit developers on the design of hands-on interactive exhibits; work collaboratively with design, engineering, graphics, editorial, web, and production staff; help prepare for and participate in client/community meetings and presentations. Judgement: Make timely exhibit/exhibition design and development decisions; show strong creative discernment and good discipline around editing of ideas. Production/Vendor Oversight: Organize and coordinate design and production by vendors and outside fabricators; oversee production in-house and outside to ensure consistent look and feel, build quality, and function. Other duties as assigned. MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS Studio-based bachelors degree or higher in architectural design, landscape architecture, industrial design, or similar, from an accredited college/university or equivalent combination of education and experience.
