Hello M-Lab Community!
TLDR; Interested in working with M-Lab? We are hiring a Project Director and have opportunities for contracts! Check out the job description and more information about the contract, and apply by March 31st!
As you may have seen, M-Lab recently moved over to Code for Science & Society. One change that might not have been as visible is that I also recently moved into a new role over at Simply Secure. For those of you whom I’ve worked with over the years on many M-Lab related projects — it’s important to note, that I’m still involved at M-Lab, I’m just moving out of my role in the day to day management, and instead still involved in some specific projects and in strategy and governance of M-Lab.
As a result, we are looking for someone new to join the team and help lead the work, based out of our fiscal sponsor Code for Science & Society! The full job description is available on our new jobs & opportunities page, so read more there!
