CS Opening Los Alamos National Laboratory


Los Alamos National Laboratory
Computer Opening
LANL is looking for a potential recent computer science Master's or possibly Bachelor's graduate to fill in for a technical project. Basically, they're looking for someone who can program in Visual Basic .Net, as well as some Python and C++. Fortran would be a plus, but they definitely aren't expecting it. They're looking for a post masters or post bachelors student to bring on in the next couple of months. The candidate would have to be able to get a clearance in the near future, so almost certainly they'd have to be a US citizen.

The project in question is a Biological Event Reconstruction Tool. It's used to model how airborne biological hazards disperse through an (urban) environment. The student would be maintaining existing code, and adding additional features to the code base. They'd work directly with scientists in Atmospheric Modeling, Biology, and Chemistry here at LANL.

It's an interesting project, and they need help. If you know of anyone who might be interested and who fits the bill please contact Scot Halverson at or

Student Web Position - Duluth


Reliable Solutions - Duluth
Paid Student Position, Website Development Project - Part Time

Reliability Solutions, a local Duluth company, is developing an online training course "Mechanical Failure Mode Identification" course for industrial clients.  The objective is to teach students how to identify mechanical failure modes of machinery.  The class is being designed as an online instructor-led class coupled with web pages that will be used by students to diagnose failed components.

Students/users will have a picture of a failed component, background information and a series of characteristics they can select to identify the failure mode.  The characteristics are bound to a SQL database that will be used by the students to present their findings.  A summary of the students'' findings will be used by the instructor to evaluate their learning.

Assistance is required to:
* Refine a SQL database containing student's responses
* Bind the database to web pages
* Develop detail and table queries with edit capabilities
* Construct a consistent appearance across all the pages
* Enable navigation and search
* Build a secure login
* Optimize code as required

A prototype web page has been developed using Microsoft Visual Studio and C# code.  It is preferable if development will continue with Visual Studio and C# although it is not essential.

The person working on this project will be expected to:
* Help the principal engineer of Reliability Solutions develop a working knowledge of the software and code used to construct web pages.
* Write C# code as required, research and answer code questions.
* Write Java / AJAX code as required to support the page development.

Upon completion and implementation of this web project, work will be started on web pages to support "Mechanical Failure Analysis".  This project will be similar but will include engineering calculations on most of the web pages.

If interested, contact Tom Brown at:
