  • Installing and configuring open source PHP and Python web applications
  • Troubleshooting errors, bugs, defects, glitches, snafus, and hysterical raisins

  • A desk for yourself in the sunny ibiblio office in 213 Manning Hall
  • Working with a group of smart and energetic faculty and students

Candidates must be full or part time undergraduate or graduate students at UNC Chapel Hill.  The position is for 10-20 hours/week starting as availability of space and funding allows; pay depends on skills and experience.
