The Centro Nacional de Análisis Genómico (CNAG-CRG) is one of the largest Genome Sequencing Centres in Europe. CNAG-CRG researchers participate in major International Genomic Initiatives such as the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC), the International Human Epigenome Consortium (IHEC), the International Rare Diseases Research Consortium (IRDiRC) and the European Infrastructure for life-science information (ELIXIR), as well as in several EU-funded projects.
CNAG-CRG is seeking an experienced Linux Systems Administrator to join the Scientific IT team. The main responsibilities of the candidate will be to manage and improve our computational resources based around a linux compute cluster using slurm, lustre storage and an infiniband interconnect. Proactive involvement in day-to-day operations and troubleshooting are a large part of the remit.
About the team
The Scientific IT Team currently comprises of 3 engineers and the Head of SIT. The team manages around 10PB of scientific data and Linux clusters of around 5000 cores in total. SIT provides support to researchers on site, and works closely with the CNAG-CRG labs to address their computational needs and build custom solutions. Most of the data is stored in Isilon and Lustre and is backed up by a large Tape Library. As well as maintaining and managing the existing systems we carry out research and development of new systems and approaches.
The most important mission of the team is to ensure that the scientists have access to high quality and reliable storage and compute resources and that we provide expert professional support to allow them to use the resources to their maximal potential.
