EMSL (the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory) has a legal mandate to publish all our data -- and we're committed to making that mean more than just minting a DOI and dumping it in a database.

If you're interested in FAIR Data principles and want to help champion the importance of scientific metadata, or have an interest in automation and sample tracking, you should apply for these positions!

It's one job ad targeting more than one job. Happy to answer questions.

Back on my never-ending hiring parade, we're looking for junior and mid-career data scientists!

This will be curation, management, and creating new uses for petabytes of biological and environmental research data -- in other words, actual data science, with emphasis on science! Explore a world where data science doesn't involve targeted advertising!

Tonight my wife and I were sitting on the couch at about eleven pm, when the Dell Optiplex in the next room started farting uncontrollably.

And that was how I found out that my son
- was staying up past bedtime
- had got my old X60T working
- had SSHed into his computer to get his Discord password.

all these people defending the fsf have no idea who the voting members are

for all you know, bill gates, darl mcbride, larry ellison, and scott mcnealy are the sole voting members.

I'm not the hiring manager on this one, but we're looking for a postdoc who wants to research coastal biogeochemistry!

I know my love for Baltimore is completely unrequited, but I just had to make my own corned beef on rye, like some kind of animal, and I miss Attman's deli

If you think that people want Stallman gone from the FSF because of his defense of Minsky, you're ignoring a whole hell of a lot of other problems, all of which are well and publicly documented.

It's no longer worth differentiating between simple ignorance and deliberate misrepresentation.

onboarding is like waterboarding but with bad ideas instead of water
