The Interacting with Print group at McGill University and the Université de Montréal is accepting applications for a database and website developer to aid in the SSHRC funded project “Making New Connections in Book History Using Digital Technologies.” This project involves the creation of a server-hosted relational database, as well as online portals for both remote data entry and web-based queries. The successful application will assist in the design and creation of both the database and these user interfaces and will work with the project team collaboratively in the design and implementation of the architecture. To that end, we are seeking an applicant who can work both independently to develop the necessary database and software applications and collaboratively with the team on the design of the architecture and in future updates or developments to the software.

The ideal candidate will demonstrate:

  • database experience or training in MySQL or SQLServer (or alternately, background experience with enterprise database solutions such as Oracle) database programming experience or training (for example in PL/SQL or Transact-SQL)
  • some application language proficiency in one or more of the following: PHP, VB, C++, Perl or Ruby and the ability to create AJAX style web applications
  • expertise in web page/application technologies including XML, CSS and JavaScript.

Additionally, particular consideration will be given to candidates who have previous bibliographic experience or have worked with or have knowledge of Text Mining applications, statistical computing (particularly the R software environment) or Multilingual FrameNets and have some experience in the Digital Humanities.

Please send cover letter and CV to interactingwithprint@mcgill.ca before Wednesday October 13th. Interviews will be conducted the week of October 18th. Remuneration will be hourly at $23.18/hr.
