  • Still looking for that exciting summer job?  Well, look no further!  Contact Mike Tie (mtie@carleton.edu x4067 cmc305).  Mike is looking for three Assistant System Administrators to help him setup labs and classrooms for the upcoming school year.  There will be some programming, writing documentation, building web pages, lots of software installations and imaging.  Help faculty and summer researchers with anything and everything related to computers.  You'll work with linux, Windows, and OSX. No experience needed; you will be trained as you go.  The positions are budgeted for 10 weeks of the summer, and that leaves you time to still enjoy a summer vacation.  And best of all, you get to continue working for Mike during the school year.
