Do you have what it takes to handle a large HPC and Cloud infrastructure at HLRS, one of the largest German supercomputing centres?
If you are interested in the computing technologies of tomorrow, this post is for you. If you want to work on cutting edge on HPC and Cloud systems, this post is for you. If you can provide creative solutions to problems in computer research, this post is for you!
HLRS currently has a job opening for a cloud engineer.
HLRS is Germany’s oldest national supercomputing centre. We offer HPC services and support for scientists, researchers, and engineers. Our largest HPC installation is called Hornet, looks like this, and has 3.8PFLOPS. That makes it one of the fastest computers in Europe! HLRS is one of the world’s leading institutions in the research areas supercomputing, Grid Computing, and Cloud Computing. We are also a member in the Cluster of Excellence on Simulation Technologies.
Within MIKELANGELO, HLRS drives the architecture specification, HPC integration, and an HPC use case. HLRS chairs the architecture definition in order to compile requirements and to lay the architectural foundation in Mikelangelo. This foundation will leverage Mikelangelo’s technology stack to empower Cloud and HPC services. Mikelangelo’s code will be integrated with a cluster system at HLRS. With the cancellous bones use case, HLRS provisions an HPC use case to evaluate and validate the whole software stack.
If you would like to work for Mikelangelo at HLRS, you need to be skilled in DevOps and you need to get along well with use. Your job will revolve around integrating and running the cancellous bones use case. This job is tougher than it sounds. You will need to administer an HPC cluster and integrate bleeding edge software from other Mikelangelo contributors. Once the software is integrated, you will need to automate the setup process and service provisioning.
This open position offers the opportunity to do research for postdocs and for applicants interested in doing a PhD.
To summarise, this position offers the opportunity and challenge to work with cutting edge hardware and software in one of Germany’s largest supercomputing centres. If you are inclined to do research in this area or to run production services, you will get to do this, too.
