the digital library landscape.

Responsibilities:   Conduct creative inquiry and analysis to develop
prototypes and software applications related to preserving and providing
long-term access to scientific data. Collaborate with data producers and
repository contributors to develop cutting-edge software applications

science and technology through a combination of educational or research

minimum software development experience. Sound working knowledge of
Java, JSPs, HTML, web servers, Linux, XML, web services and relational
databases. Excellent communication and collaboration skills, including
the ability to work independently as well as within a team environment
and with diverse groups of faculty and graduate research assistants.
Excellent analytic and problem solving skills, and the ability to plan,
coordinate, and implement projects.

Desired Qualifications: Masters Degree in Library Science (ALA
accredited) and/or advanced, terminal degree in a relevant subject
discipline.  Proficiency with XML and metadata manipulation. Background
in developing Java servlets and EJBs.  Experience working with a range
of applications using current and evolving metadata standards and
associated technologies, such as Dublin Core. Experience working with
open source, repository-centered platforms such as Fedora.

Salary:  Commensurate with qualifications and experience. This posting
has a limited duration of three years with continuation beyond three
years dependent upon funding.

Status and Benefits:  Research associate, administrative professional
position, non-tenure track.  Twelve-month appointment with annual
vacation of 22 working days.  Flexible benefit programs. TIAA-CREF
retirement.

Purdue University is a national leader in the areas of agriculture,
business, engineering, science, and technology.  Purdue is experiencing
unprecedented growth in research funding and, in addition, will be
completing a $1.5 billion capital campaign in 2007.  Purdue has the
