There is one small loose end regarding the job position. Those who drafted the attached proposal intend that this position become an 11-month position, i.e., the person chosen will be expected to work an additional 18 days and will earn 110% of his or her natural salary. At this time, funds for the extra time haven’t been identified, and we also recognize that it may be problematic for the person chosen to work this summer on short notice. So this particular issue will have to be worked out. Again, we encourage all eligible candidates to apply by the close of business on April 23.
