Other responsibilities include mentoring student choreographers across the department in using digital technologies to capture their work, as well as teaching students how to use digital media in their performances. This faculty member will serve as advisor for student concerts (particularly involving dance and media), and will counsel students on academic and career goals, create professional media partnerships, and advise dance and new media internships and fellowships.
S/he will also train and mentor graduate assistants and digital student production crews in filming, digital workflows, and dance and new media pedagogy. Service on departmental, Tisch and University-wide committees is required as is continued engagement in professional, creative and scholarly activities.

Vanessa, I can support what you are saying. The blurb is our official Tisch post, but we do know that folks will have their particular areas of experience; we are interested in pioneering artists in this exciting field, and hope to receive a wide variety of applicants    Andy Teirstein, Tisch Dance Department.

Thanks for posting Marlon! What a fantastic opportunity. They're asking for a lot from the candidate, and they might find it, but to anyone reading this who feels like "wow, this is so me!" but then gets cold feet about stature or the many media & qualifications discussed, I suspect a successful candidate will be strong in some respects and not as strong in others. So if it "sounds like you" I'd totally apply!
