High Energy Physics Grid Computing




Imperial Coll., London


Closing Date:


Deadline: August 27th, 2007


Applications are invited for the position of London Tier 2 Technical Co-ordinator within the High Energy Physics group at Imperial College London.

The next generation of particle physics colliders will produce volumes of data so large that it will be impossible for physicists to analyse the data at a single central location. Instead, a distributed Grid architecture is being developed. The computing model that is being adopted is hierarchical with the experiment producing the data being the Tier 0, National Centres the Tier 1s and regional centres the Tier 2s. Within London 5 institutions (Brunel University, Imperial College London, Queen Mary University of London, Royal Holloway University of London and University College London) form a distributed Tier 2. The role of this position is to co-ordinate the activity within this distributed Tier 2 so allowing these individual centres to act as a coherent, Grid-enabled unit. The position is based at Imperial College London but the successful applicant will spend a considerable fraction of their time at the other institutes. Further information can be obtained from Dr David Colling (d.colling@imperial.ac.uk).
