HPC System Administrator (fixed-term)

Salary: £34,956 - £46,924

Research and Institution Services (RIS), a division of University Information Services in the University of Cambridge, is seeking to appoint an HPC Systems Administrator to support and develop high performance computing (HPC) and a range of other interesting, research computing-oriented services managed by the division. 

All services are currently based on variants of the Linux operating system, and a strong background in Linux system administration is therefore necessary, with experience of managing multi-user, networked environments. Specific HPC knowledge is advantageous but more important is the ability and willingness to learn new technologies and the facility to explain technical issues to an audience with varied technical knowledge. Duties will include day-to-day operation and support of several large, complex, multi-user Linux-based services, and responsibility for meeting project objectives and timelines.

RIS provides research computing services, including HPC, data storage and virtual machines, to the entire University and its affiliated institutes. It also supports research computing on a larger UK scale through DiRAC, and later in 2017 through a new, peta-scale Tier 2 national HPC facility. RIS continues to enjoy rapid growth in demand for its services across all academic disciplines and already supports several large scientific projects in astrophysics and particle physics, e.g. the Square Kiliometre Array, and in the life sciences e.g. the 10,000 genome project.

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