The University of Exeter is a member of the prestigious Russell Group of research-intensive universities and in the top 150 universities in the world (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2022 and QS World University Ranking 2022). We have recently opened a number of new and exciting opportunities in our IT and Digital function.
The university is developing a new ten-year strategy where digital ways of working will be central to delivering our vision and goals. The digital transformation will impact profoundly on our workplace design, the skills we develop, the way our students learn, and the way we work and collaborate, and we want to ensure that this transformation has our staff and students at its heart. We are investing in digital technology and skills development to strengthen our education, research, and partnerships, and to meet the needs of our community.
Exeter IT & Digital is central to all of this, and we are looking for people to join us who want to be part of this major transformation and part of changing the way we work and the way our students learn.
Why our staff love working here
The Research IT team is part of Exeter IT and this is an exciting opportunity to be part of that team. The Research IT team support researchers with all of their IT requirements, from bespoke hardware, support on high-performance compute (HPC) to software development, working alongside the wider Exeter IT department.
Due to expansion at our Penryn campus in Cornwall, the successful candidates will possess an up-to-date knowledge of relevant technologies, coupled with a strong focus on user requirements and strategic planning, which will deliver a computing infrastructure capable of facilitating world-class research. Good communication skills will play a vital role in liaising effectively with colleagues elsewhere in the University to ensure the delivery of a high-quality service to end-users.
Applicants will have a degree in relevant academic area or equivalent. Applicants will have experience of Windows, macOS and Linux administration, and experience of supporting a range of hardware from laptops through to rack mounted servers and storage. Knowledge and experience of university research would be an advantage, as would other experience enabling the candidates to contribute to research.
