A new and exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and highly motivated HPC Systems Administrator to join the Advanced Computing Research Centre as part of the newly-funded GW4 Facility for High Resolution Cryo-EM (Electron Microscopy).

The Advanced Computing Research Centre (ACRC) develops and manages advanced computing solutions for the University of Bristol?s research community. The ACRC has received funding to design and install a new High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster, called BlueCryo. This will support processing of images and data produced by the GW4 Facility for High Resolution Cryo-EM. The BlueCryo HPC system will comprise both a batch processing CPU/GPU cluster and an associated live processing satellite node that will be located with the microscope. This will complement our existing HPC clusters, BlueCrystal Phase3 and BlueCrystal Phase4, which the post holder will also contribute to supporting.

The post holder will be a member of the ACRC, and will work as part of a team of HPC Systems Administrators, Data Specialists and Research Software Engineers to provide HPC Systems Administration support for BlueCryo.
