Pretty much just that, if you know about it and are interested, keep on reading this entry as the details are after the jump. If you aren’t, well, then, don’t. This is around USC locationwise, which is probably important to note.

This will be a great job. Please circulate widely, and have people
email me: [email protected]; with resume, cover letter, and contact
information.
