Job of the Week: Research Computing Specialist at Stanford University

Stanford University is seeking a Research Computing Specialist in our Job of the Week.

As a Research Computing Specialist, you will draw on both deep technical knowledge and interpersonal skills to facilitate and accelerate academic research at the Stanford University Graduate School of Business (GSB). You will join a team of research analytics scientists, data engineers, and project managers on the Data, Analytics and Research Computing (DARC) team to support research at the GSB. Your clients will include GSB faculty and collaborators who are drawn from a broad spectrum of academic backgrounds, research interests, methodological specialties, and technical backgrounds.
