October 2013: Windows administrator Ehren Benson leaves
Ehren Benson, the P-A Department's Windows Systems Administrator for nearly seven years, has accepted a position with MSU IT Services' Virtualization, Storage & Systems group. His last day with the department was Wednesday, 23 October 2013. A recent winner of the P-A Outstanding Staff Award, he will be missed for his diligence and dedication in providing computing services to this department and others.
While he is in some respects irreplaceable, we do need to hire a replacement, so if anyone knows anybody who might be both qualified and interested, have them go to the MSU Jobs web site http://jobs.msu.edu/ and search for job posting number 8552. For a copy of the job description, minimum requirements and desired qualifications for this position (as you will find on the jobs site), see this PDF document.
Update: as of 25 March 2014, P-A has hired a new Information Technologist, Esther Reed, to take over Ehren's duties and responsibilities. Welcome, Esther!
