[HTCondor-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 -

Syracuse is seeking to hire a Computer Systems Specialist to help
develop and support computing infrastructure for LIGO data analysis
efforts.  It is a full-time position, with pay commensurate with
experience.  We would especially welcome anyone with roots in the
Condor community.

Please circulate, and encourage anyone interested to contact me or
apply for the job directly via the URL below.



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 many people who are not computing
experts (along with many who are), and you can help them do great

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