Applications are invited for the post of Deputy Superintendent of Workshops at Technical Officer level. The post-holder will join one of the largest Departments in the University to be the Deputy to the Superintendent of Workshops. The Superintendent manages a number of resources that support the teaching and research activities in the Department. These include the Central Workshops, technical staff recruitment, and the Department's interface with the University's Estate Management and Building Service. The post-holder will also have responsibility for all estate related issues including: planning and making proposals regarding the allocation of space; preparing and collating usage information for refurbishment bids; representing the Department's interests in refurbishment schemes; project managing refurbishments/reallocation of space; preparing and maintaining an on-going plan of refurbishment.
The post-holder will be educated to degree level with relevant experience and proven managerial skills. Appointment will be to the retiring age subject to satisfactory completion of a probationary period. The pensionable scale of stipends for a Technical Officer is currently £21,640 to £29,127 a year.
For further information please contact the Secretary of Department (Administration and Personnel), Department of Engineering, Trumpington Street, Cambridge, CB2 1PZ (tel. 01223 332615, e-mail email@example.com). Applications consisting of a supporting statement, a curriculum vitae, and a completed PD18 form, including the details of two referees (who may be consulted before interview) should be sent to the Secretary of the Department (Administration and Personnel) by 11 July. Informal enquiries may be made to Mr D. S. Green (tel. 01223 332700, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org).
Applications are invited for the post of Director of the Cambridge-Cranfield High Performance Computing Facility (CCHPCF). The post will be based in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences. CCHPCF is a collaborative research resource, delivering high performance capability computing across all Schools and Departments in the Universities of Cambridge and Cranfield.
The Director will be responsible for the management and development of the Facility's Cambridge site and will be assisted by a part-time Administrator and at least two Systems Managers. The Director will expand the user base, both within the University of Cambridge and externally, and will enable the Facility to become financially self-sustaining after three years.
The recurrent costs budget is currently £400,000 a year and a bid for substantial SRIF funding this year has been prepared to replace equipment. The life expectancy of the equipment is generally three years, and development of a strategy for on-going technology refreshment is a key part of the role. The Director will need to combine good technical knowledge of current HPC technologies and applications with experience of their use in research, preferably across more than one discipline, and their relevance to the computational needs of all disciplines across the University.
A postgraduate qualification (or equivalent experience) is required, together with several years' research or managerial experience in HPC-related areas.
The Director should demonstrate the ability to develop and articulate strategic directions for HPC, both within the University and to other HEI institutions and HPC user groups.
Excellent verbal and written communication skills are essential, as is the ability to unite various stakeholders across the University at every level of the organization. Awareness of HEI funding strategies (e.g. Full Economic Costing) and their implications for research would be an advantage.
Appointment will be for a fixed term of three years. The pensionable stipend is currently £44,094 a year. For further discussion about the post and CCHPCF contact Professor Ron Horgan (e-mail R.R.Horgan@damtp.cam.ac.uk).
For further particulars please contact Liz Hewitt (e-mail email@example.com). The CCHPCF website can be found at http://www.hpcf.cam.ac.uk/.
Applications, including a covering letter, a curriculum vitae, and a completed PD18 form, together with the contact details of three referees should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 June.
Owing to the generosity of the Isaac Newton Trust, the Faculty of Classics is able to advertise a Newton Trust Affiliated Lectureship, for appointment of up to five years. The terms of the scheme require that Newton Trust Affiliated Lecturers are Fellows of Colleges who are non-University Teaching Officers but who receive their prime stipend from their College for teaching undergraduates.
Newton Trust Affiliated Lecturers are expected to give twenty-four lectures a year for the Faculty, to examine from time to time, to supervise Research Students, and to be involved in Faculty teaching arrangements.
Applications, including an up-to-date curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and a letter from the applicant's College, giving approval in principle to participation in the scheme, and the name of one referee, should reach Alison Miller, Faculty of Classics, Sidgwick Avenue, Cambridge, CB3 9DA, by 21 June. Further information concerning the scheme is available at http://www.newtontrust.cam.ac.uk/.
