Advanced Computing Center for Research and Education (ACCRE) This data science postdoctoral position will focus on (1) setting up and maintaining a Linux cluster optimized for Big Data processing and (2) providing advanced user support to groups using this cluster. We are searching for candidates who are strong programmers and self-starters and would enjoy the challenge of building and optimizing a Hadoop-based cluster from the ground up. We will consider candidates who lack experience in Hadoop-based software if they have an otherwise strong research computing background (e.g. someone interested in transitioning into a career in data science or looking to strengthen his/her data processing skills).

This is a full-time, 12- month appointment with regular working hours, benefits, etc., optimally beginning in September 2017. EDEFI (pronounced “edify”) investigates the institutional, technical, social, and cultural factors that affect decision-making, career choices, and career satisfaction for engineering and computing doctoral students, candidates, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty who have been marginalized by race and/or gender. EDEFI also looks at ways those factors contribute to the current underrepresentation of these marginalized groups in engineering and computing faculty positions. We pay special attention to increasing the numbers of Black faculty in these positions. Visit our website at: Blackengineeringphd.org Drs. Ebony McGee and Monica Cox (c/o Monica Ridgeway)
