We are looking for another Linux systems administrator to
join our IT team.

The job is based in the UK, but I thought I'd pass it along
to CLUG anyway.

Further details are below, and in the PDF linked to by the
URL at the end.

This is a senior position, but we would be happy to
underfill the post for the right person.

If you're at all interested, please do feel free to drop me
an email (mwest at maths.ox.ac.uk) if you want to chat about
the position, and working in the UK in general.
