someone you may call Darla Van Horn at 614-287-2570 (V/TTY) and you will
be directed to the appropriate staff. Thank you and have a good day.

This job appears to be more than simply running a tech lab. Looks like
there is a fair amount of opportunity to expand one's technology
repertoire. The salary is pretty good for the Boston area and the campus
is easily accessible from the Orange Line (T) so you can get rid of the
car and live in one of the greatest college towns in the world!

And for you movie aficionados - BHCC is the college that Robin William's
character taught at in 'Good Will Hunting'.
