enthusiasm for open source projects and understanding of the benefits of
openness in general (open access, open standards, open data, open access to
information, etc.)
experience with various XML parsing modalities, e.g. Xpath, XSLT, regular
expressions, Schematron.
Interested applicants should send the following:

a cover letter containing a summary of their experience, and at least two
a copy of their resume; and
code samples, ideally in PHP, ideally open-source (e.g. via a Github
to Brian Owen, Associate University Librarian (brian_owen at sfu.ca). Postings
will remain open until filled.


The Public Knowledge Project (PKP) is a research and development initiative
based at Simon Fraser University with many development partners and
supporters around the world. PKP has been developing free, open source
software for the management, publishing, and indexing of journals, books,
and conferences for 15 years. The PKP software suite is comprised of four
modules: Open Journal Systems, Open Monograph Press, Open Conference
Systems, and Open Harvester Systems; as well as a variety of supporting
software projects. Visit PKP http://pkp.sfu.ca/ and have a look at the
