This advertisement is part of a concerted action where Chalmers e-Commons is hiring six co-workers. More information on this strategic initiative and the mode of working within Chalmers e-commons is found here.

Digital Research Engineers at Chalmers e-Commons
The Digital Research Engineers form a team that provide the primary contact between Chalmers e-Commons and individual researchers, research groups and larger research collaborations and infrastructures. The team of Engineers support research by providing expertise on practical use of large-scale computational and data management resources and advancing the state-of-the-art in selected collaborative projects where research software is developed and used. Here, the Digital Research Engineers work closely with both the researchers and with the e-infrastructure experts in e-Commons. For clusters of problem areas, the Digital Research Engineers build, coordinate and further develop networks of Chalmers experts on digitally supported research. The Engineers also provide advise on which e-infrastructure resources and services - locally, nationally or internationally - that could be most suitable for specific research efforts. 

The employment presented in this advertisement has a focus on High-Performance Computing. 

Chalmers e-Commons is working actively with consolidating the notion of Digital Research Engineers as partners for bridging the gap between advanced e-infrastructure resources and the needs of research to solve increasingly more complex problems. Here, e-Commons will  articipate actively the international development and work with e.g. merits and career planning.
