Two programmer/analyst positions are available immediately for
the Agricultural Genome Information Service (AGIS) project.  This
project, an ongoing cooperative effort between the University of
Maryland and the USDA, provides genome data to scientists and
other users throughout the world.  If hired, you will be working
in a state-of-the-art environment developing the next generation
of software for Internet access of our databases and other
information.  Most of the development will be in Java and Perl 5
(and perhaps C) on Sun/Solaris and DEC Alpha systems.  Experience
in these languages in a real-world situation is strongly
preferred and Unix experience is essential.  Also, experience
with ACeDB or another object-oriented database package is a big
plus.  Knowledge of molecular biology/genetics or experience with
scientific databases is desired as well.  You must be able to
work cooperatively with group members.  Creativity is strongly
encouraged.  Excellent benefits. The formal announcement is
