    We are pleased to announce two exciting new positions for imaginative
    IT developers, involving hands-on experience and state-of- the-art
    technologies, and located in the intellectually challenging

    and ready to learn. We promise to stretch your understanding and give
    you valuable practical experience with a wide range of new technologies.

    The two jobs currently advertised are both available for one year in
    the first instance on Research Grade RS1A (16286-24479) and located in
    Central Oxford. Detailed job descriptions for each post are available
