Before HR got at it, the job description read:

Campus Information Technologies and Educational Services (CITES) at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are seeking to fill one or 
more full-time Research Programmer positions in the Systems Management 
Group (SMG).  SMG provides UNIX and Windows system support for 
CITES-provided central services, as well as UNIX support to other 
campus units on a cost-recovery basis.  This particular position is 
responsible for providing cost-recovery services.

As such, you must possess a strong customer service orientation and the 
ability to consistently deal with other people. Unhappy customers 
rarely continue to pay for our services.  You must also have the smarts 
and the creativity to approach a wide range of tasks.  Managed systems 
include individual workstations, production-class-servers, and other 
groups of machines.  You may find yourself outfitting a research lab, 
configuring a local mail server, or troubleshooting the job scheduler 
of a compute cluster.  Expect the phrase “other duties as assigned” to 
be fully exercised.

You will work both as an individual consultant and as part of a larger, 
collaborative team of information technology professionals. The 
pecularities of a specific contract may mean that no one else in the 
group has specific expertise in your problem or that you may share some 
portion of administration duties with others in the group.  You will be 
expected to participate in group-wide decisions, projects, and 
activites.  In a group of talented individuals with distinct 
personalities, it helps to be armed with a sense of humour and some 
amount of respect for your colleagues.

This job is located in the United States and, due to the nature of the 
work , requires the person filling to job to be on-site.  Relocations 
costs are not part of the salary package.  Job applicants may be 
international; in general, tho, we do not sponsor people for work 

If you have any other questions, etc. please contact me directly at the 
address given in the official job posting.
