NeIC seeks a manager for the NT1 activity

NeIC is looking for an activity manager to lead the operations team that runs the Nordic distributed Tier-1 site for Large Hadron Collider (LHC) data storage and computing. This is a large-scale (>20 PetaByte) storage and computing effort that is part of a wider international infrastructure for storage and computing called Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG), which manages data on the ExaByte scale.

The main focus of the NT1 activity manager is to lead the distributed NT1 team towards operating a high-quality and sustainable Nordic Tier-1 service within the WLCG. This includes a range of tasks, from leadership, task prioritization to stakeholder engagement, but also classical project follow-up. The ideal candidate has excellent communication and collaboration skills, as well as expertise from development, deployment or operation of e-infrastructure services. Candidates are expected to have a genuine interest in developing skills in project management for distributed teams and in providing value-added services to researchers.

The contract period for this position is four years and will start as soon as possible. The activity manager is expected to commit 50% of a full-time equivalent to the Nordic Tier-1. It is anticipated that candidates are employed at a national e-infrastructure organization in one of the NeIC countries (Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden), or a collaborating institution. For candidates that are qualified but not employed at one of the above mentioned organizations, NeIC offers to negotiate an employment relation. Staff are normally sub-contracted to NeIC through a service agreement between the national employer institution and NeIC, with the aim of enhancing Nordic collaboration.

If you are interested, please read the full position announcement here and apply by 1 September, 2021. Any questions may be directed to either NeIC Director Gudmund Høst or NT1 Activity Owner Tomasz Malkiewicz. Applications including CV should be submitted to openpositions@neic.no.
