As part of the university's comprehensive vaccination program, all Cornell employees are required to have and provide proof of an FDA-or WHO-authorized or approved COVID-19 vaccine or have obtained a university-approved disability/medical or religious exemption, regardless of their role and work location.
New hires are required to provide documentation showing full vaccination status (that is, completion of two shots of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine or one shot of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson) before their first day of work. If a new hire's vaccination is not complete or information is not received by their start date, the first day of work will be delayed. It is possible in some cases that an offer of employment may be withdrawn.

A key differentiator of the master's degree programs at Cornell Tech is that traditional discipline-based fundamentals of each program are complemented with the practically-oriented, multi-disciplinary, team-based curriculum, required of all students in all programs. In the Studio, students learn and practice user-driven tech industry development processes by creating prototypes of digital-enabled products and services. Working in multi-program teams, students engage with end-users, companies, nonprofits and government agencies in creating prototypes of digitally-enabled solutions to real-world challenges, getting vital feedback and ideas from fellow students as well as faculty and practitioners from the NYC tech community, via a variety of formats, including flipped-classroom lectures, crits, scrums, sprints, and more.
The Studio Coach supports the execution of Cornell Tech's Studio program, working with the Studio team (both faculty and staff) to ensure students learn how to build digitally-enabled products and services that matter. The Studio Coach reports to the Studio Director and takes academic direction from the Chief Practice Officer and studio faculty.
The Studio Coach position begins July 15, 2022, and concludes on January 31, 2023. It is a full-time, benefits-eligible position, with the expectation that coaches will work 40 hours per week.

This position will be primarily in person on Cornell Tech's Roosevelt Island campus in New York City; individuals must be located in the United States throughout the appointment period.
