Collaboratively innovate and develop systems and infrastructure to support experiments at the CERN Large Hadron Collider and other data-intensive experiments.Â
A major focus will be development of data organization, management and access (DOMA) systems using the Scalable Systems Laboratory of the NSF Institute for Research and Innovation in Software for High-Energy Physics (IRIS-HEP).Â
Other projects include development of container-based edge services deployable via the NSF SLATE platform to advance collaborative science, and the Open Science Grid to couple data access with distributed high-throughput computing systems.
Will interact with others on the team on large-scale compute, storage and network systems supporting the ATLAS experiment at CERN and other disciplines pursued in the EFI or the OSG which push the limits of distributed, large scale data-intensive computation.Â As our team now works in a distributed fashion, relocation to Chicago is not required.
