Princeton Research Computing are seeking to recruit a computational research support engineer to work on the

The position will involve a variety of work covering aspects of delivery of data and accompanying software both internally and to the public. It will include managing data movement between HPC clusters, upkeep of modules and the database that tracks products; working with the collaborations to prepare public data deliveries, visualizations and tutorials; and installation and deployment of custom map-manipulation software. Working with ACT and SO Data Management team members including Jo Dunkley, Simone Aiola, Matthew Hasselfield, Mathew Madhavacheril, Sigurd Naess & Adri Duivenvoorden, the position will initially focus on the final data releases of the ACT project, then transition to the SO project.

Ideal candidates will have significant experience in using Python for numerical analysis as well as data management tasks in a Unix environment, familiarity with collaborative development tools such as git and github, and significant familiarity with modern HTML and Javascript. Experience with client and server side web application frameworks is valued.
