Sorry about the spam.  I hope it's ok to post job openings here.

The team I work for at Georgetown University has begun the hiring
process for a new programmer.  We're doing work on NCI's caBIG project,
plus some internal projects with a variety of scientists, most of whom
are in the Life Sciences in some way.  Some of this work will benefit
from someone who has some background as a Bioinformaticist, other work
will require no scientific background at all.

Right now, we're only advertising the position on the Georgetown HR
website, but sometime during July we'll be casting a wider net with some
classified ads and on line job sites.  In the meantime, if you happen to
know anyone who might be interested in working at a university in
Washington, DC, please feel free to forward this note on to them.

The link to the website itself is:

It requires a bit of digging to find the listing itself, but anyone
interested can apply on line.  What follows is the job description from
the website.  We're not looking for a lot.
