Dear code4lib community,

I hope some of you will consider applying for the job ad I'm pasting
into this message. I think this looks like a fun job with lots of
opportunity for innovation and growth, and I know you would be working
with some fantastic people. The Research Computing Lab is the sister
lab of the Scholars' Lab where I work... they support science and
engineering and we support computing for humanities and social
science, but we provide similar services and we work together a lot.
UVa and the larger Charlottesville area have a vibrant developer
community, and a local group called beTech that is a lot like
code4lib, with an annual bar camp, monthly presentations, a community
maintained development environment, and a monthly social event. Also,
the weather here is lovely, and the Appalachian mountains are gorgeous.

If this job seems interesting to you and you want further information,
please feel free to contact me and I'll answer any questions I can.

Cheers!

Bess
