All I can vouch for is my five years of Wikipedia experience, some of which I have dabbled in dispute resolution. I presented on the topic at Wikimania 2007 (that is sadly the highlight of my life). I would love more than anything else to take this job opportunity, except I am not anywhere near complete with my schooling.
I regret that this opportunity could not have presented itself five years from now instead.
