David Geffen School of Drama at Yale/Yale Repertory Theatre seeks a new collaborator to serve as Projection Supervisor.

We are looking for someone who appreciates the artistry of technical systems as much as the science necessary to execute them, who enjoys solving challenges through collaboration, and who is driven to discover and innovate. And above all, we’re looking for someone who wants to foster a community where everyone belongs.

The School aims to train and advance leaders in every theatrical discipline making art to inspire joy, empathy, and understanding in the world. We are the most comprehensive graduate‐level theater conservatory in the English‐ speaking world, offering training in Acting, Design including Costume, Lighting, Projection, Set and Sound Design, Directing, Dramaturgy and Dramatic Criticism, Playwriting, Stage Management, Technical Design and Production, and Theater Management. The School operates in concert with the Tony Award‐winning LORT Yale Repertory Theatre in downtown New Haven, CT. Our community of more than 400 faculty, staff, students, and technical interns is guided in our work by four core values: artistry, belonging, collaboration, and discovery.

The Projection Supervisor reports to the Production Manager and coordinates the work of the projection production department. While overseeing the staff Projection Technician, projection intern(s), and casual and work‐study labor, the Projection Supervisor mentors student engineers and collaborates with graduate student and guest projection designers. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, participation in budget and production meetings, oversight of planning, system preparation and load‐in phases, attendance at selected rehearsals, technical rehearsals, previews, note sessions, strike and subsequent seminars. The Projection Supervisor is responsible for tracking the development of projection hardware and software, and will oversee, monitor, and expend the projection shop equipment budget, and collaborate with the projection design faculty on design lab equipment and upkeep. This position may teach courses in their area of expertise.

This position will require a significant weekly in‐person component which would require them to be on campus. Per COVID protocols, all staff must be fully vaccinated or submit an approved exemption. All individuals, regardless of vaccination status, are required to follow current university guidelines on masking and other safety protocols.

This position will also be required to participate in Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI), sexual harassment, and safety trainings as scheduled by the School. These annual trainings deepen their practice of centering the mission and values of the Geffen School by demonstrating inclusive behavior, maintaining a safe working environment free from aggression, and recognizing microaggressions and interrupting behaviors that hinder the School’s anti‐racism and inclusion efforts.

This is a full‐time, 12‐month position with a salary of $65,000‐75,000 and full Yale managerial & professional benefits. Benefit highlights include 403b retirement plan with immediate core contribution of 5% and match to 10%, tuition reimbursement plan for ongoing education, scholarship program for dependents, a homebuyer program, and multiple medical coverage plans, including a no copay/deductible on campus option.
