Max Planck Institute for the History of Science (Berlin, Germany) is hiring a full-time GIS developer, and applications are due by February 1, 2018. Although the position is for 14 months to start, there is a good chance for further extensions depending on performance and funding availability. Also, there is some flexibility with the start date (especially for non-EU candidates, given the additional time for employment visa processing), so spring 2018 graduates are welcome to apply.

Full job advert can be found at https://www.mpiwg-berlin.mpg.de/en/news/jobs#16248 and in the attached PDF. Do get in touch if you have specific questions – I'm more than happy to chat about the position, the work environment, the hiring process, etc.

Cheers,
Sean
