Director of Facilities Technologies - Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center-2012211
Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) provides university, government and industrial researchers with access to several of the most powerful systems for high-performance computing, communications and data storage available to scientists and engineers nationwide for unclassified research. We advance state of the art high-performance computing, communications and data analytics. It is supported by several federal agencies, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and is a leading partner in XSEDE (Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment), the National Science Foundation cyberinfrastructure program. At any given time, we provide access to high performance computing resources for several thousand academic researchers throughout the country.
We are seeking a Director of Facilities Technology. In this role, you will be responsible for directing all operations for PSC high-performance computing and storage resources, as well as planning, design, deployment, installation, maintenance and operation of future high performance computing (HPC) systems. Current supercomputing resources include Bridges and Anton2 as well as the Brain Image Library and HuBMAP converged infrastructures (see https://www.psc.edu/resources ).
Such HPC systems embody novel, innovative, state-of-the-art high performance characteristics not found in typical IT systems. Examples are high performance interconnects such as Omni-Path & Infiniband, parallel filesystems such as Lustre & BeeGFS, heterogeneous clusters with high performance processor nodes of varying capabilities including dense GPUs,, advanced job scheduling software requiring development of complicated scheduling algorithms, etc. Often these components are the first of their kind and require active collaboration with vendors beginning well before product release and extremely skillful problem-solving work just to make them work. PSC's primary computer room is located miles away from the main staff offices and is run as a nearly
