Greetings all-

This is a job posting for the position I'm currently leaving.  I love 
the job and my fellow techs, but for personal reasons need to move out 
to NY, so I'll be leaving them in the near-future.  I'll be happy to 
talk more about it if anyone's interested! If so, please email me at 
bsweeney at physics.ucsb.edu.  

The description and instructions for application are up at UCSB's HR 
site here:


The job I'm leaving is with the Physics Department (although there are 
other tech jobs listed there as well!).  Below is a copy of the job 
description.  Again, let me know if you have any questions...
