On-campus summer CS research/systems opportunity

March 20th, 2013

I am looking for 2 students interested in doing paid, on-campus research/systems work with me this summer. I have funding to support 2 students for 10 weeks at up to 40 hours per week, and there is some flexibility in terms of schedule.

The primary project will be updating and improving XenLabs to get it ready for use in class next year. XenLabs is built on a Python/Xen/Linux base, and I expect that most of our work will be done at a scripting level.  Useful background could include Linux/Unix experience, Python programming, shell scripting, security topics, system administration, and/or basic computer networking. However, this is an educational experience, so a 2xx level CS background and a willingness to learn is what is really needed.

If you are interested in working on this project, send an email to Benjamin.Kuperman@oberlin.edu with your relevant background (preferably sometime this week). Feel free to email or talk to me if you have questions about the project or just want more info.
