[Condor-users] JOB AD: Computer Systems Specialist Position in SU Gravitational-Wave Group

[I've been reassured that it's okay to post this to condor-users, but apologies in advance to anyone who isn't interested in seeing it in their inbox.]

Condor users -

Our group is looking to hire a Computer Systems Specialist to develop and support software infrastructure enabling LIGO data analysis efforts. The job will be a mixture of software/hardware support for the cluster and development of data-analysis and information management software. It is a full-time position, with pay will be commensurate with experience.  We would especially welcome someone with roots in the Condor community.

Please can you circulate the text below to anyone that might be interested in the position? If you know anyone who might be a good fit, please encourage them to contact me and/or apply for the job.



We're looking for a talented systems developer to contribute to the
research efforts of the Syracuse University Gravitational-Wave Group,
and the broader LIGO project.

Our group is a small and highly collaborative mix of Physics faculty,
research scientists, postdocs, grad students, and undergrads, and your
responsibilities will include software and systems development for
large-scale distributed computing, from cluster/cloud management to
data-intensive scientific workflow support.

You will have the opportunity to take ownership of projects, and be
responsible for helping to define the vision, design, implementation,
and use of the systems you develop.  You can be an integral part of
both our local and international group, with a role in the broader
efforts outside Syracuse.

Experience with distributed/grid/cloud computing, virtualization,
scientific workflow management, database technology, or automated
testing are are pluses, but not required.  If you're smart and
enthusiastic with a strong technical foundation and practical focus,
we will trust you can learn anything you need to get the job done.

At an absolute minimum, you must be proficient in at least one
high-level scripting language, familiar with C/C++, and comfortable
with Unix operating systems.

LIGO is a rewarding project--fascinating, important research into the
nature of the universe, with cutting-edge computing challenges--and
the Syracuse team is a great group.  This job offers a supportive
working environment and lots of fun, and your work will be
appreciated.  You will be around a lot of people who are not computing
experts (along with a few who are), and you can help them do great

We're eager to improve the diversity of our group and institution, so
minority candidates and women are especially encouraged to apply.
