FAR (the Facility for Arts Research) Seeking Python Programmers to Intern

Published November 24, 2013
Each term, the Facility for Arts Research (FAR) offers internships to select FSU students with an interest in digital making. The MMAP (Big 3D Printer) project, run by Windham Graves, is seeking Python programmers to help develop interface and processing software. Interns are expected to have a working knowledge of Python, or knowledge of a C-based language and a willingness to quickly come up to speed. There is a dual-monitor Dell computer lab at FAR available to intern programmers.

The FAR internship requires a semester-long commitment, maintenance of a regular schedule, a professional attitude and taking a high degree of personal responsibility. Applicants must be enrolled in a degree program at Florida State University, and are supervised by FAR staff in cooperation with their own academic department.

  • Internship applicants must submit:

A letter of interest, which includes:

◊ An answer to the question “What is attractive about an internship at FAR?”
◊ An answer to the question “What do you expect to gain from an internship experience with us?”
◊ A listing of skills related to or complimenting the work done at FAR (3D modeling, rendering, electronics, printmaking, lighting, CNC, dance, 3D printing, electronic art/imaging, programming, writing, editing, graphic design, CAD, statistics, sound, interior design, photography, technical theater, web design…surprise us!)
◊ Résumé/CV including a list of coursework you feel may be relevant
◊ Anticipated semester of internship; Internships and volunteer appointments are handled on a per semester basis, with applications being accepted no later than 1 month prior to semester’s start.

Students wishing to receive college credit for internship hours must also consult an advisor in their academic area and include a summary of requirements (paperwork, hours per week, academic meetings, research writing, etc.) along with name and contact information for a responsible advisor and/or faculty sponsor.
Submit the above to

After applications are reviewed, selected applicants will be contacted for interviews. Only candidates chosen for an interview will be contacted. No stipend is available. Interns must be able to fulfill their hours during the standard 9-5, Monday-Friday work week.
