EPCC announces three new vacancies

Posted by a.hay on 18 March 2014 - 12:11pm

With the launch of its new ARCHER supercomputing service, EPCC is now recruiting. Founded at the University of Edinburgh in 1990, EPCC is a leading European centre of expertise in advanced research and technology transfer. We have three job roles in a variety of areas currently being advertised.

The first role is as an Applications Developer - Computational Science and Engineering. This involves working in the Computational Science and Engineering team who are responsible for the provision of in-depth technical support on the UK national HPC service ARCHER. The role's main responsibility is to provide programming and software engineering solutions for projects using ARCHER, but the role also involves working on other EPCC development projects too.

The second role we have available is for an Applications Developer - Data Science. This involves working as a programmer, analyst and technology expert in the broad area of large-scale distributed data systems. It also requires helping domain scientists in a variety of disciplines to learn more from digital data. Our projects range from exploring experimental computing platforms for data-intensive analysis through to “big data” collaborations with scientists in astronomy, genomics and systems biology.

The third role we have available is for another Applications Developer to join our User Support and Liaison (USL) team. This outward facing role provides scientific, technical, administrative and programming consultancy, as well as support and training for academic and industrial users of ARCHER and EPCC's own machines.

The pages for each role provide a link to the application form. The closing date for any of these roles is 5.00pm GMT on April 3rd 2014. If any prospective applicants wish to further discuss any one of these roles then they can contact Gill Maddy on 0131 650 5304.
