Job of the Week: Linux System Administrator at UC Riverside

UC Riverside is seeking a Linux System Administrator in our Job of the Week. “UC Riverside’s research computing infrastructure is provided by a central HPC facility. This facility operates Linux clusters with over 6,000 CPU cores, 75TB of total system RAM and several GPU nodes. Big Data storage is handled by a centralized GPFS-based storage cluster with over 4PB of disk space for production and backup storage. The incumbent will be part of a team responsible for the systems administration of this HPC infrastructure, including development of software for parallel computing, network management, data security and user training.”

UC Riverside to help develop scalable quantum computers

The University of California, Riverside, has won a University of California Multicampus-National Lab Collaborative Research and Training Award of $3.75 million that will allow the campus to focus on enabling scalable quantum computing. “The goal of this collaborative project is to establish a novel platform for quantum computing that is truly scalable up to many qubits,” said Boerge Hemmerling, an assistant professor of physics and astronomy at UC Riverside and the lead principal investigator of the three-year project. “Current quantum computing technology is far away from experimentally controlling the large number of qubits required for fault-tolerant computing. This stands in large contrast to what has been achieved in conventional computer chips in classical computing.”
