Oberlin College

The Irvin E. Houck Computing Center at Oberlin College seeks an energetic, congenial, organized, team-spirited and self-motivated individual to join the staff of its Administrative Computing Services group as an Analyst/Programmer.

The Analyst/Programmer is a full-time Administrative and Professional Staff position responsible for the development and support of administrative information systems servicing the major administrative functions of the institution.

Oberlin's current administrative computing infrastructure is a mixture of RMS/COBOL-based systems and newer Oracle-based systems using Oracle tools (SQL*Forms, SQL*Menus, SQL*ReportWriter, Pro*COBOL and Pro*C). Client Macintosh and DOS/Windows machines in the administrative offices communicate with the central systems over the campus-wide ethernet network, which is also connected to the internet. Oberlin anticipates a major migration in the near future to vendor-supplied software for the largest administrative systems. The Administrative Computing Services group will maintain the older in-house developed systems, implement the migration to new systems, and develop customized add-ons to enhance the capabilities of the vendor software.

The candidates of most interest will display the following qualities:

        o       A minimum of 2  years experience in programming complex
                information systems, preferably in a higher education setting,
                and a bachelor's degree or equivalent experience.

        o       Business analysis, planning and organizational skills.

        o       Knowledge of C or COBOL and experience with the Oracle
                relational database management system and related tools.
                Experience with VAX/OpenVMS and/or Unix.

        o       The ability to communicate well orally and through written
                reports, especially in the area of communicating technical
                concepts to non-technical users.

Oberlin College is a highly selective liberal arts college of 2800 students located in the rural environment of northeastern Ohio, yet having convenient access to metropolitan Cleveland. The college provides a competitive salary commensurate with experience, plus attractive benefits which include a generous pension program, medical and long-term disability insurance, one month annual vacation, life insurance, and tuition support for children.

Screening of candidates will begin on March 19,1996 and will continue until the position is filled. Applications, including a complete resume, references, and salary requirements should be directed to:
