[Discuss] Careers in OS Hardware Communities

Emily, (and Others,)

We am currently writing a grant application to submit to the US Department of Energy (DOE) to financially support an OH effort similar to the one started at CERN.
Technically, the hardware we are interested in is control system hardware, but that's not relevant since we need non-engineering help.
We need to develop supporting documents (slide deck, grant application, ROI analysis, etc.) and promote the idea in the US scientific community.
Are you or is anyone interested? If so, email me privately.

Hi Emily,
Having a hub for jobs or volunteer/internship opportunities sounds like a great idea! I was also thinking that since most OSHW communities tend to work in a distributed fashion, remote work opportunities should be feasible. As long as you have a fablab or hackspace in your town, you should be able to work remotely. I was thinking something along the lines of http://authenticjobs.com or https://weworkremotely.com/, but then focussed on OSHW opportunities. 
Or is it possible that there are not enough OSHW jobs out there at the moment to make this feasible?

Good Evening!
I am a graduating senior studying engineering at Smith College in Northampton. I am curious about the availability of job opportunities and careers within existing open source hardware projects. Are there any projects growing rapidly enough to need support staff? I spent last summer at Open Source Ecology, am currently working with a team on FarmHack, and am looking forward to continuing to grow my experience and network within the OS hardware world. 
I initially sent this question to Alicia who pointed me towards Making Society which is a useful resource especially for creating a new hardware start-up. I think it would be useful to organize a similar hub for job, volunteer, and internship opportunities in this field and am looking forward to learning about these resources. Any thoughts and ideas would be appreciated.
I look forward to hearing from you all -
