Hello all. I hope this type of post is allowed, but I need some advice.
I am at a research center at a large university. Our budget has a position for one "programmer" to handle our data collection needs. Most of our data collection these days uses Inquisit so we need someone who is interested and capable of programming in Inquisit or learning to. However, we also need a jack-of-all-trades to develop our demographic databases and act as help desk support for the research assistants when something goes wrong with Inquisit or the demographic databases or whatever on the laptops they take with them out into the field.
I come to you, my fellow Inquisit users to ask, "What type of person am I looking for?" I feel like it's hard to find a jack-of-all-trades in general and specifically for this situation. Computer-science types have seemed inclined to get bored or feel like Inquisit is a sidetrack from the primary skills they've developed. Our research is in education so I've searched the web for Educational Technology positions thinking that they would be intrinsically interested in our research and also might have the technical aptitude we need, but they all seem to focus on online courses and teaching. Are there any other possibilities that I'm not thinking of?
Any advice or suggestions would be most appreciated! Thanks in advance.
