Undergraduate Web Programmer

Gain applied programming experience to enhance your resume or graduate school application at the Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies (COAPS). COAPS has
an immediate opening for a part-time undergraduate student to develop and maintain web services to support dissemination of research results and datasets and to provide an accessible
web front end for researchers and the general public.

Duties include (1) designing and developing new web pages, (2) updating content on HTML, PHP, and Joomla pages, (3) maintaining content in backend databases (primarily MySQL), and (4) developing database-to-web applications to display/serve the wide range of atmospheric and oceanic data and research products served by COAPS. This position will provide the motivated undergraduate with an opportunity to develop and expand his or her web programming skills while supporting an operational research center.

Applicants should have a strong interest in the distribution of information via the World Wide Web. The successful candidate must have a working knowledge of HTML. Past experience with personal web pages, an interest in web page design, and the desire to acquire new web programming skills are essential. Familiarity with PHP, Python, CSS, Javascript, and/or Joomla
