My academic team is looking for a programmer to take our individual outputs and integrate them together into a single graphical user interface. The job will last at most 6 months and at most we can afford a junior developer salary. The separate pieces of code are rough and ready and written in at least two different languages (R and Python).
Traditionally, uni job ads tend to go to other researchers, but we need a dedicated programmer. On the other hand, the work will probably seem quite isolated, unstructured and without direction to someone acquainted to working within a development team. Although we are a friendly bunch and will help where possible, they will need to come up with the design and then integrate the code with little input from the rest of us. I'm concerned that we won't find someone who is comfortable in this environment.
How might we reach the kind of person we need - and who even is that person?
Edit in case the downvotes are due to a lack of clarity about the salary.
The maximum salary that a our budget can afford is a junior developer salary. I certainly don't mean to suggest that the job is somehow straightforward - indeed, I think it's very tough.
