University of Westminster in search of two Research Associates for European CloudSME project

16 Jan 2015 London - The Centre for Parallel Computing (CPC) at the University of Westminster is looking for two Research Associates to carry out research in Distributed Computing Infrastructures (DCI's), particularly in Cloud, desktop and service Grid infrastructures used in European and UK research projects, and implement technical solutions that manage applications and workflows in these DCIs at the Centre for Parallel Computing. Successful candidates will be expected to contribute to management, operational support and technical development of DCIs.

The Centre for Parallel Computing (CPC) at the University of Westminster is one of the leading research centres in distributed and parallel computation technologies. In particular it is engaged in research on Distributed Computing Infrastructures such as Clouds, desktop and service Grids. CPC has successfully established a track record of secured research funding in large-scale collaborative research projects - more than 10 projects in the last 7 years. Currently it is leading an EU-funded project (CloudSME) and participating in one more (IDGF-SP). CPC has an extensive publication portfolio of journal and conference papers since 2000. The CPC team consists of two full-time professors, one reader and four researchers.

The expected experience should include good programming skills - preferably Java, and user-level knowledge of the Linux operating system.

The job reference number is 50040505. The closing date for applications is 4 February 2015. Interviews are likely to be held on 17 February 2015.
