HPC Consultant (Fixed Term) 

Salary: £34,576 - £46,414

Research & Institutional Services (RIS) is part of the central University Information Service (UIS) within the University of Cambridge. It provides Research Computing and Data Services to the entire University and its affiliated institutions. RIS is currently enjoying a rapid growth in demand for its services from across all schools, providing a world-class computing platform based on NVIDIA GPU and Intel many-core technologies to enable better research outputs using state-of-the-art High Performance Computing and Big Data. 

The role holder (HPC Consultant / Performance Software Engineer) works under the direction of the Head of Research Software Engineering and undertakes research and service duties within the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project.

The SKA is a global next-generation radio telescope project involving institutions from over 20 countries. It will be the largest and most capable radio telescope ever constructed. When completed it will be 50x more sensitive than any previous instrument. This unprecedented sensitivity will be achieved by combining and analysing signals at a raw data-rate of peta-bits per second. The Science Data Processor consortium (SDP), led by Professor Paul Alexander at the University of Cambridge, is responsible for the design of every architectural aspect of the computing infrastructure necessary to digest and analyse all data generated by the telescope. 

By joining RIS, the role holder will have the opportunity to work closely with scientists and engineers world-wide on an in-depth analysis of the performance behaviour of the data-flow middleware. The focus is about understanding the performance of the entire system, identify bottlenecks, design benchmarks and run simulated operational scenarios to help validate architectural choices (both hardware and software). The overall goal is to achieve high service levels, operational quality and timely delivery of collected data from the field instruments to the domain experts. 

The role holder will be educated to PhD level in Computational interaction with a world-wide distributed team. Essential skills required include good proven knowledge of programming languages such as C/C++ and Python and proven experience working with complex large-scale distributed systems (from design to deployment). Experience in message-passing (e.g. MPI) or data-centric parallel programming system (e.g. LEGION) would be advantageous.  The role holder must have good interpersonal skills with a customer service orientation and be proactive and creative in problem solving. Good presentation skills both orally and written will also be an advantage.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for three years in the first instance.
