    Take the opportunity to work on the intersection of art, technology and science

    Baltan Laboratories is looking for a Project Officer from August 2018 (starting date negotiable) for 4 days a week - 0,8 FTE.

    Baltan Laboratories is a foundation established in 2008, with the mission to create an environment for collaboration and experiment on the intersection of art, design, technology and science. The philosophy of the lab resonates with the innovative spirit of the early Philips Physics Laboratory (Natlab) and the city of Eindhoven. Since our move to the renovated Natlab in 2013, we’ve experienced a rapid growth. Anno 2018, we’ve established ourselves as a relevant player in the cultural field with international ambitions relating to topics of societal importance. In the coming years, Baltan strives to expand both our activities and reputation (inter)nationally.

    The new Project Officer is motivated to facilitate and organize the programs of Baltan Laboratories. You are involved in the administration, logistics, communication and production. The tasks of the Project Officer include:

    • Maintaining working budgets
    • Financial administration for funds and international EU projects
    • Managing ticket sales for events
    • Coordinating transport of artworks
    • Coordinating travel and accommodation of artists and guests
    • Hospitality
    • Supporting event communication
    • Supporting funding applications & reporting
    • Coordination of production exhibitions and events
    • Coordination of hosts and volunteers for events

    The Project Officer exists in a close working dynamic with the Baltan team and you align your activities in tandem with the Project Leader. In addition to this, you support Baltan colleagues in other activities if necessary.

    You are living in Eindhoven or in the Brabant province, and are well embedded in the regional and (inter)national creative field and technological sector. You have experience in working with artists and have an affinity with the creative sector, specifically in the domain of art, design, science and technology.
    You can match a higher professional education level in thinking and working. You are flexible and stress resistant. Even in busy times you manage to keep an overview, while prioritizing and communicating. Communicating in both English and Dutch is no problem. You know your way around MS Office, Excel and have good overall digital skills. You are able to create budgets and maintain them accurately.

    You have no objection to occasionally work an irregular schedule in case of events. As a team player, you involve colleagues with the project and you are able to feel ownership for the projects you are working in.

    Remuneration will happen in line with your experience and the standards in the cultural sector. We are looking forward to receiving your letter of motivation and resume before June 17, 2018. It may be addressed to Olga Mink: info [at] baltanlaboratories.org. Interviews will take place between June 25 – July 4, in Eindhoven.
