IT Architect 4 at UC San Diego
As an Organized Research Unit of UC San Diego, the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) is considered a leader in data-intensive computing and cyberinfrastructure, providing resources, services, and expertise to the national research community, including industry and academia. Cyberinfrastructure refers to an accessible, integrated network of computer-based resources and expertise, focused on accelerating scientific inquiry and discovery. SDSC supports hundreds of multidisciplinary programs spanning a wide variety of domains, from earth sciences and biology to astrophysics, bioinformatics, and health IT. SDSC launched Comet, a petascale supercomputer that joins the Center’s data-intensive Gordon cluster. SDSC is a partner in XSEDE (eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment), the most advanced collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world.
The S3 group within SDSC will engage in 3 primary activities: i) examining SDSC software creation projects for business models for continued sustainability, ii) operating the HUBzero infrastructure which involves the creation and ongoing operation and development of the HUBzero software platform, and iii) leading the Science Gateways Community Institute which involves coordinating the efforts of 45 personnel around the United States as members of a distributed virtual organization funded by NSF that provide consulting services to the science gateway community.
The IT Architect 4 will apply advanced IT architecture concepts and campus / medical center / OP or community-specific objectives to resolve highly complex issues with significant impact on the organization, regularly work on issues where analysis of situations or data requires an in-depth evaluation of variable factors, and effectively selects criteria for evaluating results.
The incumbent will act as an architectural lead for large scale projects requiring significant cross functional design. Such designs will include all aspects of science gateways and scientific applications. Designs may involve green field projects starting fresh or re-architecting existing major software projects and will include implementation language, composable service decisions, service interfaces, database architectures and designs (standard, non-SQL, and custom), design for fast performance at scale, message queueing, middleware services, large data import facilities, enabling effective UX design with underlying architectures that support a dynamic UX. S/he will be responsible for ongoing HUBzero architectural changes and those of major HUBzero applications. Architectural designs also include planning appropriate implementation technologies, including Python, PHP, React.js, Clojure, and other supporting languages and technologies. Additionally the incumbent will act as a liaison between experts in scientific simulation, HPC, middleware, web design, UX, and data science to define architectures that combine all such perspectives to deliver effective client solutions.
