Job of the Week: Head of Research Computing at the Norwich Biosciences Institute

The Norwich Biosciences Institute Partnership is seeking a new Head of Research Computing in our Job of the Week.

We have an exciting opportunity for a strategic High-Performance Computing (HPC) leader to take accountability for the future development of research computing across one of the UK’s foremost research organisations. The Head of Research Computing will set the future technology strategy and service model for mission-critical research IT services at NBI.

The Norwich Biosciences Institutes (NBI) are a cluster of internationally renowned research organisations. The institutes work together to tackle the major challenges facing us all in the 21st Century – the sustainability of our environment; our food supplies and healthy ageing. Across NBI, there are over 1,000 scientists working to find realistic and practical solutions to these challenges. We then provide the infrastructure and support to translate their discoveries into commercially-successful businesses.

This vital, and impactful, new role will have end-to-end ownership for the provision of our research computing shared-service. The Head of Research Computing will lead the development and delivery of research computing provision across NBI, including the strategic evolution of the technology roadmap, incorporating contemporary approaches such as flexible cloud computing based HPC provision.

 The Role:

  • Define, develop and deliver NBI’s future research computing technology strategy, together with the associated business cases and funding roadmap. Work at the national level, with funding bodies like UK Research and Innovation, to keep abreast of developments in the sector and to pro-actively influence on behalf of NBI.
  • The Head of Research Computing will engage across the Institute’s research stakeholder community in order to shape, manage and stimulate demand for research computing services.
  • Lead and develop the research computing team at NBIP. Create a culture of on-going professional development and service excellence. Drive clarity of the role within the team, plus build an improved project delivery and change management capability.
