Wanted: Relational database programmer/developer

The Sustainable Archaeology project is seeking the expertise of a relational database programmer/developer for a full-time, 2-3 month contract to assist the team in developing a relational database warehouse of digital archaeological artifacts and collections. The warehouse will be the backbone of an interactive database that will allow users to correlate, compare and analyze data in spatial and/or temporal frameworks. The backend will be developed in SQL. We are seeking a programmer who can help us define and organize our requirements and develop, test and modify the database architecture. Experience with GUI development in Visual Basic or similar program for data input/output is desirable to extend the terms of the contract. We prefer someone with experience in the temporal, spatial and semantic complexities of archaeological collections.

For more information/inquiries, please contact:

Look closely, and you'll see the frame of the new facility going up in the background of this photo. The new year has already seen significant progress on site. A few warm days melted much of the snow that had accumulated around the construction zone during December's record-breaking snowfalls. By the end of next week, the frame for the new facility should be complete.
