Viewing technology in the context of work, scholarship and campus life, TTS is a university-wide service organization committed to delivering technology services that support Tufts’ mission of teaching, learning, research, and service. Understanding that IT enables innovation, TTS prioritizes holistic, human-centered design strategies to create timely and intuitive services, applications and tools that differentiate the Tufts experience.

Across our diverse and creative teams, we engage and focus our collective talent to strengthen Tufts’ strategic IT capabilities. To keep pace with our community’s emerging needs, we continue to evolve our competencies across four main families of practice, including Planning and Design, Service Delivery and Operations, Data Strategy, and Academic Technology.

Thinking and acting strategically with technology occurs through strong partnerships and an engaged community. Additionally, for technologies to take on integral meaning to our work, we also need reliable and consistent support in using them. With staff across all of Tufts’ campuses, as well as a 24×7 IT Service Desk, we collaborate with schools and divisions to meet the demands of a global, mobile community and to enable the broadest possible access.

Come join our collaborative, flexible work environment, where leadership is valued at all levels of the organization, and opportunities abound to work with leading technologies and learn new skills.

The Studio Manager supports students and faculty by managing and maintaining the printmaking, paper-making, screenprinting, and graphic arts studios, including facilities, affiliated classrooms, analog and digital equipment, processes, documentation and training, and inventory of materials and supplies. The Studio Manager is responsible for the day-to-day smooth and safe operation of all classrooms, darkrooms and studios with their attendant equipment and supplies, to support the academic and creative goals of faculty and student users. This includes providing technical support services to faculty and students, including conducting technical training and workshops.

The position requires the collegiality and interpersonal skills needed to work with faculty and students as part of a team in an open, atelier-style print and paper-making studio.


Applicants should have advanced level experience in most, if not all, traditional print media – relief, intaglio, screen and lithography as well as related photo/digital applications. In addition, applicants should have a working knowledge of paper-making – e.g. sheet forming, pulp preparation, care and maintenance of equipment.

Building and construction skills are an asset.

An employee in this position must complete all appropriate background checks at the time of hire, promotion, or transfer.
