We’re looking for someone to code and maintain our web page and help with scientific communications in a modern, web-savvy way. Because we’re small and like a start-up, this is a great opportunity where the right person can grow into and shape the role.
Here’s to the crazy ones. Apple once described the sort of candidates we’re looking for: “Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo… While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.”
Web design. Candidates need to know how to design, code and maintain attractive web pages. They should have a good working knowledge of the use of layout, color, and type to create good designs, and of the various web technologies needed to implement those designs and maintain the systems.
Good writing skills. Candidates should be able to produce clear, captivating summaries that are 30, 100 or 300 words long. And whilst an interest in science and math topics would be beneficial, good writing ability is what we’re primarily interested in.
Who we are. The London Institute for Mathematical Sciences is Britain’s first private institute for theoretical scientific research. It gives scientists the support and freedom to do what they do best: make fundamental discoveries.
