principal artist/graphic designer/web designer position available at UCSF

My department at UCSF is hiring a graphic designer/web designer (official title: Principal Artist), so if you know of any graphic artists in the Bay Area looking for a permanent position, please pass this on. Or, if you know of good specialized sites/lists for reaching graphic artists, please let me know (we’re using Craigslist, of course, but most of the other specialty job sites I’ve used for filling positions in the past are focused more on technology than on design). Oh, our graphic team uses Macs, of course.

Position is Full-Time/Career.

UCSF is a great place to work, with excellent benefits. This position is located at the University’s Laurel Heights campus on California Street, not far from the Presidio. The other designers on the team are really cool, and (or should that be a “but”?) you’d also be working fairly closely with me.
