I wanted to share with you a job posting to work with us at the University of Illinois. It’s available at: https://jobs.illinois.edu/academic-job-board/job-details?jobID=123477&jo...
The short description is that we’re looking to invest in the yt infrastructure, and bring it more closely in line with the modern pydata ecosystem. This would mean working to utilize and interoperate with libraries like dask and xarray, and will include designing and documenting software changes and infrastructure. Plus, it will also involve working with libraries used throughout both the scientific ecosystem and in industry in modern data science. And, you’ll get to work with fun people in both yt community and the pydata community! All the work will be open source and this project is committed to contributing to the broader ecosystem wherever we can.
I hope you’ll consider either applying, or passing this along to someone you know that might be interested. All of the information in the job posting should be considered authoritative, rather than this email. If you’ve got any questions (including about specifics of the job, the application process, etc) please do reach out to the contact person on the form!
