I had a ball of a time doing nearly this same gig in nicaragua. Climbing
mountains with a backpack full of gear is good for you, and the view at the
end of the climb glows with the fatigue biproducts.

Sorry for the spam, but I thought it might be interesting enough for

In connection with a research project at the University of Edinburgh to
establish a long-distance wireless backbone to connect community broadband
networks on the West Coast of Scotland.

We are looking for a computer scientist with some practical experience of
computer networking, but who -- most importantly -- is prepared to
learn on the job.   We need someone who is prepared to

    (1) help design and implement a network that can co-exist with
        existing community networks,

    (2) help manage and organise the project,

    (3) climb up hills and cross the sea, sometimes in unpleasant
        weather to help with the physical installation of relays,

    (4) document the work and instruct local communities, and

    (5) enjoy the fantastic scenery and hospitality of the Scottish
        Highlands and Islands and get real pleasure from providing help
        to remote communities that are desperate for decent Internet.

For some further information, seewww.tegola.org.uk.  Please note that this
position is not yet certain, but we hope to have a better idea by August
2014 and need to start looking now. We are happy to consider part-time
positions or combine with pro-bono support from industry.

If you are interested please contact Peter Buneman by e-mail
(opb at inf.ed.ac.uk) with
"Research Assistant for Rural Networks" in the header.
