Position Summary:

Media Solutions provides professional illustration, graphic design, videography and photography services to research, instructional, and clinical faculty and staff in the School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH).

Medical and biological illustrations are a vital part of the creative services we provide to physicians, scientists and researchers within the School of Medicine and Public Health. They can provide greater clarity and more detailed and individualized information than a photograph for use in grants, journal publications, books, and presentations.

We seek a multi-talented individual who can utilize their skills in an enthusiastic way to directly support, advise, and consult with faculty and other health science professionals (researchers, clinicians and instructors) by interpreting and conveying their data in a visually informative way.

The position will determine and execute the appropriate artistic techniques to describe and clarify research results, clinical procedures and instructional information.

Additional Information:

The School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but, also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
