Dear SciPy users,

The developers of the PyDSTool dynamical systems software project have
money to hire a Python programmer on a short-term, per-task basis as a
technical consultant. The work can be done remotely and will be paid after
the completion of project milestones. The work must be completed by
July, when the current funds expire. Prospective consultants could be
professionals or students and will have proven experience and interest in
working with NumPy/SciPy, scientific computation in general, and
interfacing Python with C and Fortran codes.

Detailed work plan, schedule, and project specs are negotiable (if you
are talented and experienced we would like your input). The rate of
pay is commensurate with experience, and may be up to $45/hr or $1000
per project milestone (no fringe benefits), according to an agreed
measure of satisfactory product performance. There is a strong possibility
of longer term work depending on progress and funding availability.

PyDSTool (pydstool.sourceforge.net) is a multi-platform, open-source
environment offering a range of library tools and utils for research
in dynamical systems modeling for scientists and engineers.  As a
research project, it presently contains prototype code that we would
like to improve and better integrate into our long-term vision and
with other emerging (open-source) software tools.

Depending on interest and experience, current projects might include:
 * Conversion and "pythonification" of old Matlab code for model analysis
 * Improved interface for legacy C and Fortran code (numerical
integrators) via some combination of SWIG, Scons, automake
 * Overhaul of support for symbolic processing (probably by an
interface to SymPy)
