Research assistant / technician
The Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE) is a unique interdisciplinary Research Centre of Excellence (RCE), funded by National Research Foundation, Ministry of Education, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and National University of Singapore (NUS). SCELSE work towards discovering, controlling and directing the behaviour of biofilm communities for sustainable environmental, engineering, public health and medical applications. This is enabled through its strengths in analysis of complex microbiomes, using advanced computational biology and cutting edge facilities in genome sequencing, bio-imaging and bioreactor processes.
SCELSE hosts a genome sequencing facility with multiple state-of-the-art instruments generating petabytes of data every year, and is supported by a high-performance computing (HPC) system and multi-petabytes high-performance data storage system. The HPC environment is composed of multi-vendor resources with numerous specialised hardware and software components.
SCELSE seeks a research engineer who will be responsible for the day-to-day maintenance, configuration, planning and implementation of mission critical computer systems infrastructure to support the genome sequencing laboratory.
In their role, the research engineer will perform installation, hardware and software integration, maintenance, administration, troubleshooting and operation of both software and hardware systems, including thousand-cores computational systems, scheduling environment and low-latency high-speed networks. The research engineer will be involved in managing system architecture design and implementation projects, working closely with high performance file systems, mass storage, operations, and user services to ensure that systems remain highly available and usable.
