School of Clinical Medicine


The School of Clinical Medicine wishes to appoint a Computer Associate for the Learning Teaching Technology (LT) Laboratory, based on Novell 3.12 network server software. The purpose of this post is to provide the support necessary for the successful operation of this laboratory. The jobholder will also provide technical support for a cluster of personal computers in the Medical Library, which, even though networked, are essentially operating as stand-alone computers. It is expected that the successful candidate will have a working knowledge of Novell NetWare and detailed technical understanding of personal computers. Interest in the educational use of computers in general and in computer-assisted instruction in particular would be desirable.

The appointment will be for two years in the first instance, with the possibility of reappointment. Salary will be on the scale of either Computer Officer IV (£15,159-£17,606 a year) or Computer Officer III (£17,606-£22,785 a year), depending on age and experience.

Further information may be obtained from Sally-Ann Hanitzsch (tel. 336260 or e-mail csitss-admin@medschl.cam.ac.uk).
