Research Software Specialist at Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center
The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) is a joint effort of Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh. Established in 1986, PSC is supported by several federal agencies, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and private industry and is a leading partner in XSEDE (Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment), the National Science Foundation cyberinfrastructure program.
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, engineers and scholars nationwide for unclassified research. PSC advances the state of the art in high-performance computing, communications and data analytics and offers a flexible environment for solving the largest and most challenging problems in computational science.
The Scientific Applications and User Support group within PSC is responsible for helping to maximize the productivity of researchers. We are looking for a creative and capable Research Software Specialist to join an experienced team and contribute our part in pushing forward the boundaries of science.
In this role, you will be responsible for advanced support of computational scientists, engineers and scholars in a state-of-the-art converged high performance computing and data analytics environment. Critical duties include building and sustaining collaborative relationships with researchers to address complex challenges of developing, installing, porting, debugging and optimizing application-level research software systems. You will have the opportunity to publish results in peer-reviewed journals and at conferences, to develop documentation and training materials, and to engage in workforce development activities. You will thrive on collaboration with the PSC Artificial Intelligence & Big Data, Biomedical Applications, Allocations, Facilities Technology, and Network teams, as well as with partners outside PSC, such as colleagues in the XSEDE Extended Collaborative Support Service (ECSS).
