ALCF Career Opportunities

HPC Systems Administration Specialist
How would you like to be part of enabling science at the cutting edge? At the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility, we're running some of the fastest, largest, and most complex systems on the planet. Our systems typically debut in the top 5 of the Top500 (www.top500.org) and generally remain in the top 10 for their lifetime. The issues we face are as unique as the machines and the science we support, leading us to develop our own tools and solutions and cultivate a wide variety of skills and expertise in-house. The ideal applicant will be intellectually curious, a methodical and tenacious troubleshooter, willing to dive into source code, comfortable with a debugger, capable of developing tools and creating instructions where none exist, and comfortable working as part of a team of scientists, engineers, systems administrators, and support staff. If this sounds like a challenge you would enjoy and that fits your skill set, we invite you to apply for LCF Requisition #322986 by visiting Argonne's Career Page.
 
Principal HPC Systems Administration Specialist - File Systems

The selected individual will participate in the operation, administration, and maintenance of file systems for the supercomputing resources of the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF). This includes some of the largest (10s-100s of PB) and fastest (100s-1000s of GB/s) parallel files systems in the world. For the home file system, stability and robustness to failure are paramount. For the parallel file system, performance is the critical demand. Coordinates with the other storage and operations team members for system administration duties. Appointee will participate in the design and planning for future machine upgrades (every 3-5 years), as well as investigate improved/novel approaches for providing file system and disk storage services. This position also includes SAN hardware responsibilities. If you are interested in this position, we invite you to apply for LCF Requisition #401526 by visiting Argonne's Career Page.
