Computational Scientist Consultant/Advisor Specialist, Band G Center for Advanced Computing
The Cornell University Center for Advanced Computing (CAC) is a leader in high-performance computing systems, applications, and data solutions that enable research success. Our computing and consulting services help campus researchers accelerate discovery. We also serve the national community on projects such as the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) and the Aristotle Cloud Federation, and develop online training for national cyberinfrastructure, including the Frontera petascale computing system and Jetstream 2 cloud.
CAC seeks a Computational Scientist to support the computational needs of Cornell faculty and researchers and to develop online training for national cyberinfrastructure. A passion for solving problems at the intersection of science and computation is essential as well as an eagerness to create effective user guides and online training for HPC systems and emerging technologies. An excellent foundation in computing is required, paired with the curiosity and drive to learn more. You'll work on teams and independently, multitask, and adjust to shifting priorities while solving a variety of research challenges in science and engineering and the digital humanities. Besides being technically astute, you should enjoy interacting with others--faculty, research staff, and your CAC colleagues--and communicate effectively. CAC staff thrive on change and enjoy a work environment that is intellectually stimulating and rewarding.
Cornell University embraces diversity and seeks candidates who will contribute to a climate that supports students, faculty and staff of all identities and backgrounds. We strongly encourage individuals from underrepresented and/or marginalized identities to apply.
