I just found out that my department (Computational Science at NREL http://www.nrel.gov/
in Golden, Colorado) is looking for a
"Scientific Python Applications Programmer".
It's a contract position (that's how most of us start here.)
Here is a link to the job description: http://www.redcanyonsoftware.com/jobs/index.php?id=33
If you or someone you know may be interested, please send
a resume. I used to contract through Red Canyon, and they
were pretty reasonable, and NREL is not a bad place to work.
