The Associate Producer & Communications Coordinator must be
available (and have a valid passport) for international touring starting
as early as September 2018.

Preference will be given to a candidate who could work full-time in this
capacity, should the opportunity arise. We are looking for someone who
is flexible to shifts in their hours and responsibilities, as this is a new
position and may require adjustment over the year.

Mammalian Diving Reflex creates work that pushes boundaries and
explores sensitive and oftentimes awkward topics, including sexuality,
aging, the relationships between strangers in public space, and
collaborations with populations who may have experienced a high
degree of trauma, like refugees who have suffered devastating losses
in war. Our work often (deliberately) produces discomfort, and therefore
candidates need to be resilient and not prone to being triggered by
sexuality, personal stories of violence or other challenging topics. We
sometimes collaborate with people whose views we may find
problematic, unacceptable, and affronting, and we must approach
these situations without judgment. Additionally, our projects are often
embedded in communities, immersing us in a variety of situations, and
can sometimes dissolve the division between work and life.

All the members of our team have had to learn very quickly on the job
to develop new skills and capacities, and initially, would not have
qualified for the positions we currently hold. Therefore, we are more
interested in working with people who are smart, dedicated and
passionate, with the right temperament, rather than those whose CV is
an exact fit. If youre smart, dedicated, resilient, have great multi-
tasking and detail-oriented skills, are able to manage busy high-stress
moments, and are looking for adventure – but lack some of the required
skills – thats okay. We are more than willing to train people and, to
some degree, tailor the position slightly to match the skills you have.

Candidates must be able to work legally in Canada.

DEADLINE : Thursday, August 2, 2018, 5pm EST
Possible Interview: Week of August 6-10, 2018
Possible start by: August 20, 2018
Possible touring start: September 2018

Please submit your CV, a cover letter outlining your interest and fit for
the position, as well as your favourite meme, with the subject line
Associate Producer & Communications Coordinator to
annalise@mammalian.ca. Only candidates selected for an interview
will be contacted.
