INTERN: Eric Forman Studio, Summer Term, Unpaid

Eric Forman Studio is seeking interns to work with us in our amazing Brooklyn Navy Yard studio at New Lab.

NOTE: During the coronavirus shutdown, the studio is currently CLOSED. We are hoping to re-open in the summer. Interns may be able to work remotely before then, depending on their skillset.

Projects you will be working on include physical computing, programming, prototyping, interactive design, mechatronics, woodworking, and digital fabrication.

This is an unpaid position (except those subsidized by the BNY), but in exchange you are provided with your own desk space in our studio and are given 24 hour access to the workshop and studio resources, including a full wood and metal fabrication shop with high-end CNC tools, laser cutter, and 3D printers.

For current students, school credit is possible with the appropriate commitment.

Time commitment is flexible and ranges from 12 to 40 hours per week, depending on workload and your availability; this is designed to give the intern a fair opportunity to work on their own projects or earn money at other jobs.

  • Wood shop
  • Metal shop
  • Welding
  • CNC mill
  • CNC lathe
  • CNC router
  • Laser cutter
  • FDM and SLS 3D printers

  • photography
  • video documentation and editing
  • website design
  • catalog and grant writing
  • studio business administration
  • social media strategy
  • public relations

We are looking for interns who are technically minded, organized, creative, and thorough.

Fabrication interns should have experience with at least two of the following: physical computing, architecture, industrial design, electrical engineering, computer science, or furniture design.
