Main content start

Research Data Center Facility Director

Stanford Research Computing is looking for an experienced facility manager to join our team.  Our staff work directly with some of the world's top researchers in a broad range of disciplines, across all of Stanford’s seven schools — while also supporting and learning from each other in cross-project endeavors. We maintain and manage several advanced research computing facilities, and we support a variety of environments for Stanford research. In Stanford Research Computing, you’ll have a rare opportunity to contribute to discoveries and inventions that have global reach and positive impact, and to share in the curiosity and commitment of the scholars and scientists who lead these projects.

HPC Cluster System Administrator

This position focuses on supporting researchers in genomics and bioinformatics through Research Computing’s partnership with the Stanford Center for Genomics and Personalized Medicine (SCGPM). The SCGPM applies expertise on the science and ethics of genomics to build a new collaborative model of science focused on transforming the practice of medicine. This new paradigm of patient­-centered medicine monitors the entire genome of individuals to vastly improve disease prediction, prevention, and treatment of conditions such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, asthma, schizophrenia, and many others. This approach of genomics-based medical care requires technologically advanced laboratory and computational facilities of scales that can only be found in center settings like the SCGPM.

Research Computing Systems Engineer

This position focuses on system administration, architecture and support for computing environments for secure data.  This role is both systems-facing and researcher-facing. In it, you will put to use your in-depth knowledge of Linux, your system administration experience, your passion for supporting ground-breaking research, and your expertise in automation, containerization and cloud-native tools on a daily basis.

Research Data Center Engineer

This position will serve as a technical expert in the performance of facilities engineering responsibilities involving the operation and maintenance of a major campus facility, the Stanford Research Computing Facility Module 2 (SRCF2).  The Facilities Engineer will assist in the operation of the SRCF2, monitoring temperatures, facilitating deliveries, racking servers, and storage devices, troubleshooting and repairing servers, install network wiring, installing, and securing racks. This position will also provide backup to the Facilities Engineer for SRCF1 and also for the Research Computing data center in Forsythe Hall on the Stanford campus.
