databases. In addition, UVic TAPoR project members frequently work with=20
XHTML, JavaScript and CSS, and web-based SQL database projects using=20
PostgresSQL and mySQL.

A full job announcement detailing submission requirements, deadlines, and=20
salary guidelines, will be posted shortly on the Human Resources home page=
