Stanford Research Computing | Stanford, CA (next to Palo Alto) | Full-time | Three positions | HYBRID/ONSITE
Stanford Research Computing (https://srcc.stanford.edu) is a collaboration between University IT and the Vice Provost and Dean of Research. We operate HPC environments for researchers, we do one-time consultations on projects (from software and pipelines, to data management, to physical building design and fit-out), and we provide contract support for individual Labs, Departments, and Schools.
We have three open positions:
• Linux Cluster Sysadmin: You'll be responsible for administering the Stanford SCG compute environment, focused on Genomics and Bioinformatics workloads. We use SLURM, Open OnDemand, Lmod, ZFS, and Ethernet (instead of IB). This is everything from architecture, to some data center work, to user support in office hours. You'll shape the future directions of the cluster, as we work to update our OS, our Open OnDemand, and decide on future hardware and network purchases.

• High-Risk Cluster Sysadmin: You'll be one of the administrators of Carina, our hybrid on-prem Linux compute environment for researchers working with High-Risk Data (including PHI). We use Anthos/Kubernetes, GCP, Ceph, and some ZFS. You'll help shepherd the cluster through it's beta stage, and through the process of expanding it to Google Cloud.

• Data Center Engineer: You'll be based full-time at our primary research data center in Menlo Park (on the SLAC campus). This position includes everything from racking and cabling to maintaining and troubleshooting power distribution (415v Starline bus), UPS (spinning-mass), generators, VFDs, air handlers, chillers, PLCs, and the like.

The data center engineer position is onsite; the others are hybrid. If you don't already live in the Bay Area, I believe we provide a relocation incentive. Depending on where you live, we provide free transit passes. Unfortunately, if you don't commute, you will have to pay for parking for the days you're on-site. Work benefits are all publicly documented at https://cardinalatwork.stanford.edu/benefits-rewards. We always get two weeks off around Christmas, through you'll have to spend one or two days on-call.
If you have questions, feel free to reply here or email me (the info is in my profile)!
