python position in switzerland

I'm leaving my current job at the end of june, and this will make a nice open position for a hacker wishing to work on a open-source project written in python, in a very nice area of Switzerland (french-speaking area BTW).

The job is at EPFL (Swiss Institute of Technology), and is about continuing the development of a service called infoscience which provides researchers of more than 200 labs with a common platform for managing their publications. It is not (only) an archive, as it behaves as a web service for plenty of web sites, and also pumps information from external systems.

So basically the job is about balancing the demand for specific tools (for a given lab, for the librarians,...) and the need for a high-level common platform (which already provides conversion services, quality checking tools,...) Part of the software is developed in collaboration with the CDS team at CERN, part is specific to infoscience and its design is completely up to the person in charge of this job.

The detailed offer and the procedure for applying is available on the EPFL jobs website, in french. Feel free to contact me directly for more info.

(and no, I don't leave because it's boring, but because I've been recruited by Google :-))
