I got this from another list.  I know nothing else about it.

---------- Forwarded message ----------
The Science and Human Rights Program of the American Association for 
the Advancement of Science is seeking an open source systems 
administrator ("computer specialist III") to work with us on the 
application of information management and statistics to human rights. 

We're looking for someone who loves free software, wants to support 
human rights, and is eager to travel some of the most difficult places 
in the world. 

You need to be very comfortable with GNU/Linux systems. In particular, 
some of the skills you should have include a mastery of GNU/Linux 
installations, boot loaders, and init scripts; a wide knowledge of 
system demons; experience installing, configuring, and deploying free 
software office & productivity applications; script experience (perl, 
Python, shell); and at minimum, a working understanding of SQL, free 
software implementations of SQL back ends (MySQL, PostgreSQL), and of 
rapid ways to provide UIs to SQL systems (glade, PHP/HTML). 

You also need to be willing to learn about human rights ideas, to travel
all over the world, to learn about other cultures, and to work hard when
you get there. 

This job is located in Washington, DC -- telecommuting is NOT an 
option. AAAS provides a non-smoking work environment. EOE, of course. 

If this sounds good, you can get LOTS more information (including how 
to apply) at:

Please do not reply to this email directly. The deadline for resumes is
2 July 2002.
