  We have an opening that we were recruiting a graduate student for but

the output on each query. 

An ideal candidate will be intimately familiar with SQL and relational
databases, understanding concepts like stored procedures, triggers and
function calls. The candidate will initially work closely with team
members, but will ultimately be allowed to work independently.

working with, the candidate must be able pass a background check and
