First, apologies if this is an inappropriate place to post this. It's just
that the ideal candidate is someone who can hit the ground running with
MediaWiki. If it is inappropriate please let me know and I'll refrain from
doing it in the future.

Second, I'm not involved with hiring...I just want to give the college
students in the Houston area an opportunity to apply for this cool opening.
If you get the position you will work with me a lot, so feel free to ask me
anything about what I do.

Okay, here's the semi-official job req:

Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies in Houston, TX is offering a paid
internship where you will get to work at NASA's Neutral Buoyancy Lab
(NBL)[1] and Mission Control Center (MCC)[2], working within the Mission
Operations group at Johnson Space Center in charge of Extravehicular
Activities (EVAs a.k.a. spacewalks)[3]. This group plans on-orbit
activities, trains astronauts to perform spacewalks (at the NBL and other
facilities), and assists astronauts with execution of missions from MCC.

For this internship the chosen applicant would be involved with all of
these planning, training and execution activities. Additionally, they would
be working on a project to improve the EVA Wiki (EVA's knowledge managment
system using MediaWiki [4]). The extent of this project depends upon the
chosen applicant's interests and skills. Applicants proficient in software
development could help improve existing software or developing their own
extensions. Other applicants could work on improving the content within the
wiki. For some info on how the EVA group uses MediaWiki see [5].

Applicants must be graduate students or undergraduate juniors or seniors.
Graduate students work 30-40 hours per week. Undergraduates work 16-28
hours per week. Application is open to all students, but goes through San
Jacinto College. To apply please contact Linda Drobnich at Linda.Drobnich
AT sjcd DOT edu.
