The University of Northern British Columbia invites applications for a Probationary position as a Senior Laboratory Instructor (SLI), with proposed starting date of July 1, 2021. The Advanced Research Computing SLI will report to the Office of Research and will also be appointed in a relevant Academic Unit and may teach (as time allows) courses or portions of courses to graduate students and senior undergraduates on topics relevant to research computing. The SLI supports researchers (including faculty and students) in their use of advanced and high performance computing (HPC) at UNBC. This support includes working with researchers to assist with specific computing needs that arise including installing and using software, parallelizing, debugging and troubleshooting codes, and helping researchers interact with Compute Canada resources. The SLI will manage user accounts, requests for HPC systems, system administration, IT security related to HPC, UNIX maintenance and installation, maintenance of HPC Lab equipment, monitoring systems, responding to alerts and scheduler tuning for clusters. The SLI will work closely with ITS on new HPC project implementations to ensure systems will work properly in a complex infrastructure as well as integrating research systems with core IT services. The SLI will develop project plans with tasks and timelines for future advanced research computing infrastructure projects. The SLI will work with the Advanced Research Computing Management Board on policies and planning related to HPC and assessing future UNBC needs in the area. Previous experience with UNIX (essential) and Windows operating systems in a networked hybrid environment, with exposure to the tools used in advanced research computing / high performance computing is required. Experience with software installation and scripting languages in a UNIX environment is essential, and server and software configuration experience is an asset.
