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).
