I'm posting this on behalf of Peter Pasarro.

Information Manager for Cutting-edge Brain Interface Lab

We wish to fill a full-time IM position ASAP for an enthusiastic, curious,
intelligent person to create and maintain information systems for a research
laboratory of ~15 researchers within the Laboratory for NeuroEngineering at
the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta.  The lab of Dr. Steve M.
Potter conducts basic research on learning and memory using brain cells
grown in culture dishes that are interfaced to computers.  We are part of
the Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, the Center for Behavioral
Neuroscience, the Cognitive Science Program at Georgia Tech, and the
Neuroscience Graduate program at Emory University.  (See links below)

Examples of relevant information systems include: Electronic laboratory
notebooks, web-based data sharing, reference material, databases of lab
supplies and equipment, methods and training systems, handheld knowledge
bases, appointment scheduling, travel and expenses, and videoconferencing

The ideal candidate is willing to get intellectually involved in the Potter
Group's research, to the extent necessary to be very familiar with the
information management needs of every lab member.  The IM will pro-actively
create or improve systems to solve information management problems before
they arise.  The position will provide an exciting and diverse set of
activities, and the IM must work well with people and be able to multi-task.
Excellent written and spoken English are required.  The more prior
experience with computers and information systems you have, the better.  We
use Linux, Mac OSX, and Windows operating systems, so familiarity with all
three is a plus. Pay will be based on experience, but below that available
in the commercial sector; on the plus side is the much more informal and
enjoyable academic laboratory environment, and the potential to play a
crucial role in cutting-edge research to advance brain science.
