Just a heads up to say that we’re on the look out for GIS staff to work in Oxford Archaeology’s northern office in Lancaster.

Whilst primarily we’re after staff for some large-scale projects that we have coming up over the next year, we are also looking for people who can help us work on programming applications, and help with develop protocols and work-flows for getting GIS out to all of our staff.

For the right person, this could be a really cool and exciting job. You’ll need to be aware of issues like data standards and generally familiar with the concept of GIS and Databases, but we don’t necessarily require that you’re qualified as an arcgis-ninja or anything like that, as we will endeavour to train you up in the range of packages that we use. If you’re into open source, and open data, then that’s a bonus.

If you’re interested, and you want an informal chat about it, then let me know in the comments, else you’ll find the information here. The closing date for applications is 21st March 2008. I look forward to hearing from you!
