Research Computing Technical Liaison (Fixed Term) 

Salary: £38,896 - £49,230

The Research & Institutional Services (RIS) division is part of central University Information Services (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 and departments.

The Research Computing Technical Liaison acts as direct point of contact between RIS and the wider University and associated institutions in matters related to research computing activities and services. The post involves talking with end user groups about the services RIS offers, and identifying which existing services are appropriate for their needs; devising solutions, project plans, cost and risk estimates, while assessing their feasibility and practicality and testing proposed solutions against customer requirements; and identifying requirements for new services. The role holder also coordinates, delivers and suggests new training activities to enable researchers and permanent staff to fully exploit current and future research computing facilities.

The role holder works under the direction of the Head of HPC Services. The role includes actively assisting in the resolution of technical problems, responsibility and autonomy for meeting project objectives and timelines and facilitating collaborations between service stakeholders across the wider UIS department. This role will influence major decisions impacting both external and internal business outputs, contribute to plans for current and new services, and affect RIS business strategy.

The successful applicant will hold a Master's degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or other Computational Science-based discipline, or equivalent experience. 

The role provides a key function within RIS: to ensure that the needs of the research base are translated into informing strategic direction, including infrastructure investment. In addition, through building credible relationships with the research community, and drawing on technical and domain specific knowledge, to provide a key role in translating research aspirations into technical solutions and new services. Consequently the successful applicant will require both technical knowledge and people skills, and be familiar with high performance computing (HPC) and big data concepts in addition to the technologies behind the multi-user, multi-platform IT environments found within University departments. The post provides the opportunity to interact with research communities from all disciplines, far beyond the traditional areas associated with HPC - for example, bioinformatics, linguistics and computational archaeology.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 3 years in the first instance.
