Lilly_RickThe software engineering work revolves around custom applications that allow our scientists to visualize and integrate scientific data
Lilly_Andyrftott: OK - i understand your question - dependant upon the location the contracts can be open or fixed - in th case of CR and Pol they are currently fixed, but for example on a two year contract we could work with the local HR teams to set up work

mh2753what are the locations again?
FMXLilly_Patrick: which aspect of a programmer you give more weigh to...algorithmic skills/ language knwledge / experience in developemtn side/ innovativeness(my quality:) )
