Subject: [PenLUG] two fixed-term job openings at SLAC

SLAC is a basic research facility that does not do classified work.
There is a lot of support for open source internally.    I've only
been working for SLAC for two weeks, and was thrilled when my new boss
said, "We prefer that employees use Linux."   Dude, where have you
been all my life?

See http://www-public.slac.stanford.edu/hr/jobs/joblist.asp?catid=0040
for more info.    I don't know the hiring managers for these jobs.

list of applications will include: The Electronic Logbook for
LCLS/LUSI experiments; The Management Interface to the Users
Authorization Service; The Interface to the Science Metadata Database;
The Interface to the Data Exportation Service. The applications will
be served via a unified visual framework (the Web Portal to the
applications) which will need to be developed by the candidate as
