I've done some work on these projects and have offered to help get the word
out about a job opening. The college (Evergreen State College
http://www.evergreen.edu) is a fun and diverse place to work and the area
(Olympia, WA USA) is rated in the top 10 places to live in the U.S.
Candidates must be eligible to work in the U.S. Telecommuting is probably
not an option. If you're interested in applying, please follow the
instructions in the below message as I am not a member of the hiring

The Canopy Database Project, based at The Evergreen State College, Olympia,
WA (U.S.), will likely be hiring a software developer within the next few
months. The project seeks a talented, experienced, and dedicated person to
join our interdisciplinary team - conducting research and development to
help scientists who work in the forest canopy to manage, visualize and
analyze field data.  Data integration and synthesis are concomitant project


A successful candidate for this position will have 2-3 years experience
designing and implementing database applications in a team environment using
the following technologies:  object-oriented analysis and design, Java, and
databases.  Expertise in developing web-based applications, MS SQL Server,
MS Access, Excel, .NET or Python is a plus.    Experience working with
scientists in a research environment, particularly ecology is also
desirable, and a strong desire to work with ecologists to improve their data
management and access to others' data is required.    


A successful candidate will have demonstrable and solid written and oral
communication skills, and experience or potential for directing a software
development team, eliciting specifications from users, and presenting
software design for review.   The ability to communicate across disciplines
(computer science and ecology) is a must.  A B.A. or B.S. degree, or
equivalent, is a requirement.  


This position carries full benefits, including retirement, health insurance,
sick leave, eleven paid holidays per year, one month (21 days) of paid
annual vacation, and educational benefits such as tuition waivers.  Some
teaching opportunities for qualified individuals might be available.
