New Action Items from this meeting:
NAASC News (Carilli/Hibbard)
NAASC staffing. Due to some unknowable snafu, the CSV job(s) did not run properly in the AAS job register, and do not appear in the past version. AAS will re-advertise, so we have moved deadline back to Jan 30. This is the most important activity we will do, so we should be more proatctive. There will not be many "new" positions in NAASC, so lets try to get the right people. Send advertisements to mailing lists (almanews, SMA. What else?), and target promising individuals. Open jobs: listed on NRAO employeement page and front of NAASC homepage (along with links to ESO and JAO ALMA positions):
One or more Assistant Scientist postions, with a primary reponsibility of participating in ALMA Commissioning and Science Verification. (Based in Charlottesville)
Assistant Scientist (CASA) position for a software engineer, computer scientist or astronomer to develop software for the Common Astronomy Software Applications (CASA) software package. (Based in Charlottesville)
ACTION: let people know deadline has extended (CC, CB)
ACTION: post CSV, CASA job description to almanews (JH)& SMA & Carma (CB) mailing lists
ACTION: Revive ALMA EPO Officer job search (MA, CC)
