[Job] Natural History Museum (3, 4 – two jobs) Web Application & Web Interface developers, ??30.5-32k, clos 28 Aug 2011

I’ve bunged these two together as they’re not especially science communication by themselves, but they’re support services for general public engagement stuff – and since quite a lot of science communicators seem to be pretty nifty with computering I thought I might sneak them in without anyone minding too much 🙂
