Hello,

I think that I am the first to desecrate this list with lowly commercial
offers. Normal mailing list etiquette is that it is okay as long as it's
clearly indicated in the subject line.

My company, Ajah, uses government data to offer a service to the non-profit
sector. We're creating a second service and we're hoping to find a
developer who's already involved in open data space who will join us at a
partnership level. There will be lots of opportunities to contribute back
to both the open data community and the non-profit sector.

Here's some more information about the position but feel free to get in
touch with me directly - http://nextmontreal.com/developer-job-at-ajah/

Cheers,

Michael Lenczner

 Hello, I'm looking for a Health Informatics Consultant that can work on a
pilot program for three States in Nigeria.  The intent is to help them
transition from paper records to a hybrid system of paper and
electronic records.  A system to generate unique numeric identifiers will
have to be deployed, followed by a system for printing bar codes on to
existing forms, and then scanning them into a database in the Cloud.  Of
major importance is training of the hospital medical records personnel in
improved cataloging systems for the existing paper records.

Please contact me if you are interested.

Position
Mobile Health Fellowship to Advance Health System Transformation in
the Global South

Description
PHI has an opportunity for its Center for Innovation and Technology in

Fellow from one of the following countries, Bangladesh, Vietnam,
Ghana, or Rwanda, to work at PHI for a period of twelve months on
mHealth and eHealth program activities. Candidates should have a
background in one or more of the following areas in eHealth and

evaluation of mobile technology in health, as well as on potential
opportunities and recommended actions to use mobile technologies to

components of health.

In preparation for the Fellow's return to his/her home country, the

programs, and to disseminate research findings broadly for use in
public policy and health practices. Hosting Atlas Corps fellows at

well as to leverage PHI?s strengths in developing and supporting
global South leaders.

From: Isaac Gateno <igateno at stanford.edu>

I?m Isaac and i?m looking for a partner on my CS 194 senior project. It?s a
data liberation
project which is designed to improve government transparency by making it
easy for users to
extract information from their governments on a global scale.

As part of this project, I?m collaborating with two Knight Fellows ?
professional
journalists who have been working on international investigative journalism
for organizations
like NPR, the New York Times and the Los Angles Times for years. They will
be contributing
significant subject matter expertise to the project.

My experience is mostly in back end development. There?s a significant
amount of front
end work that needs to be done. But really, we?re looking for someone who
is passionate about
liberation technology, transparency and open source and wants to put all
that together for public
good.

If you get into this project, there?s a good chance it could have real
world impact by
being more than just an academic exercise. There is significant non-profit
interest in funding
increased government transparency through freedom of information act
requests ? currently a
major pain point. If this sounds like something you?d like to do, email me
at igateno at stanford.edu and we can chat.

Calling all developers, designers, and do-gooders.

Cities are under greater pressure than ever, struggling with budget cuts
and outdated technology. That?s why Code for America is connecting talented
developers and designers with city governments to harness technology. Code
for America is helping cities keep pace with the communities they serve by
creating and implementing new applications and by demonstrating new ways of
resolving local challenges. We?re making cities better, and you can help.

Do you want to use your skills to give back to your community? Join the

generation of Gov 2.0 apps to make city governments work better.

Why Become a CfA Fellow?
During the 11-month program, you will not only receive a living-wage
stipend, travel expenses, and healthcare, but also the training and

   the Gov 2.0 movement will provide you with unparalleled networking,
   mentoring, and support.
   - Connections. Working closely with other talented individuals, you will
   develop lasting relationships in a fast-paced, startup atmosphere.
   - A Labor of Love. You?ll not only accomplish a lot and make the world a
   better place, you?ll have a lot of fun working with other passionate
   people. To borrow a line from the Peace Corps, it will be the toughest job
   you?ll ever love.

skills to make a difference.

*Dear Colleague Letter - Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic
Sciences (SBE) Employment Opportunity *

 DATE: February 28, 2012

The Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE)
announces a nationwide search for senior researchers to serve as Program
Directors. Formal consideration of interested applications will begin *March
1* and will continue until selections are made. While we are interested in
a variety of experts that span the Directorate's multidisciplinary scope,
we currently anticipate one specific area of need, with the following
target start date:

*Science of Science and Innovation Policy (SciSIP) *(Summer 2012) seeks a
scholar with broad expertise in areas of science and innovation policy,
developing, improving and expanding models, analytical tools, data and
metrics that can applied in the science policy decision making process.
Successful candidates will have training in social or economic science,
including economics, science and technology studies, organizational
science, or other related fields and demonstrated expertise in research
methods that advance science and innovation policy. This expertise may
encompass a wide variety of scientific approaches, for example: qualitative
case studies to help describe complex processes and formulate hypotheses;
quantitative and statistical methods that build new linked datasets on
researchers, grants, patents, publications, citations and firms and
workers; or analytical models that develop new tools for describing complex
outcomes or to identify the marginal impact of Federal funding on
scientific progress and outcomes. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or
equivalent experience and at least six years of successful research,
research administration, and/or managerial experience pertinent to the
position.

For additional information about the above program, please see
http://www.nsf.gov/div/index.jsp?org=SMA The position requires effective
oral and written communication skills, and familiarity with NSF programs
and activities is highly desirable. The incumbent is expected to work
effectively both individually within the specific NSF program and as a
member of crosscutting and interactive teams. The incumbent must also
demonstrate a capability to work across government agencies to promote NSF
activities and to leverage program funds through interagency collaborations.

The position may be filled with one of the following appointment
alternatives:

*Intergovernmental Personnel Assignment (IPA) Act:* Individuals eligible
for an IPA assignment with a Federal agency include employees of State and
local government agencies or institutions of higher education, Indian
tribal governments, and other eligible organizations in instances where
such assignments would be of mutual benefit to the organizations involved.
Initial assignments under IPA provisions may be made for a period up to two
years, with a possible extension for up to an additional two-year period.
The individual remains an employee of the home institution and NSF provides
the negotiated funding toward the assignee's salary and benefits. Initial
IPA assignments are made for a one-year period and may be extended by
mutual agreement.

*Visiting Scientist Appointment:* Appointment to this position will be made
under the Excepted Authority of the NSF Act. Visiting Scientists are on
non-paid leave status from their home institution and placed on the NSF
payroll. NSF withholds Social Security taxes and pays the home
institution's contributions to maintain retirement and fringe benefits
(i.e., health benefits and life insurance), either directly to the home
institution or to the carrier. Appointments are usually made for a one-year
period and may be extended for an additional year by mutual agreement.
*
Temporary Excepted Service Appointment:* Appointment to this position will
be made under the Excepted Authority of the NSF Act. Candidates who do not
have civil service or reinstatement eligibility will not obtain civil
service status if selected. Candidates currently in the competitive service
will be required to waive competitive civil service rights if selected.
Usual civil service benefits (retirement, health benefits, and life
insurance) are applicable for appointments of more than one year. Temporary
appointments may not exceed three years.

For additional information on NSF's rotational programs, please see
"Programs for Scientists, Engineers, and Educators" on the NSF website at:
http://www.nsf.gov/about/career_opps/.

*How to Apply:* Applicants should indicate within their cover letter and
subject line of the email that they are applying for a position in the
SciSIP program. Please submit a cover letter and curriculum vitae to
khenders at nsf.gov.

Colleagues, please consider these two ICT4D jobs at the Carter Center.

1. A shorter-term position consisting of a series of trips to the DRC,
mostly involving training and building technical capacity with partner
CSOs for Carter Center programs. Functional French skills are a
requirement for this one.

2. A longer-term position based in Atlanta, basically a tech guru for
the Democracy program, advising program staff on how to best use
technology, as well as training and implementing. A fair amount of
international travel included.

The Carter Center is earnestly and energetically expanding its use of
ICT throughout its programs and it's a great place to work. Feel free
to contact me directly if you have questions about either job.

To apply for the DRC job, email your CV and cover letter to the email
address at the end of the attached job description ASAP.

The Atlanta job has not yet been formally posted, but will be soon.
You can contact me (thomas.smyth at gatech.edu) if you are seriously
interested.

Those who will be attending ICTD next week are welcome to talk to me
in person about these positions as well.

Please forward this message to individuals or distribution lists that
you think would be interested.

Thanks,

Tom
