Systems Administrator in Earth Science

We are soliciting applications for a Systems Administrator for the Earth Science Department.

The primary responsibilities are to maintain and update a network of Linux computers and their interface with a Macintosh/PC network, and install and maintain licensed, free, and locally written software used for research and education. The system administrator is expected to work closely with the Rice IT staff, particularly the High Performance Computing group and IT personnel responsible for Mac/PC maintenance.

The Systems Administrator provides front-line technical support for the operation of the Earth Science Department UNIX, Linux, Mac, and PC networks with support from Information Systems and LAN Management. This position provides ongoing support for a large Linux and PC/Mac system. An important aspect of the position is the development of a robust and easily accessible user account and file archival system. The Systems Administrator performs daily systems management on production and development systems and maintains an efficient and highly available computing network.

In addition, the Systems Administrator interacts with the Visualization Project Manager to help develop and maintain the DaVinCI (Dana Analysis and Visualization Cyber Infrastructure) visualization systems.
