National Supercomputer Centre (NSC) at Linköping University is one of Sweden’s largest high-performance computing and storage (HPC) centres, with some 30 staff members and currently managing compute resources of over 40,000 CPU cores and multi-Petabyte storage facilities. NSC has been providing supercomputing resources to the Swedish academic community, the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute and SAAB for some 25 years. NSC is also part of the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC), an organization that coordinates investments and services for the benefit of researchers at Swedish universities. Similarly to almost all HPC centres, worldwide, we use a Linux environment to deliver our compute resources. Our flagship is the 400+ TFlops cluster named Triolith and new systems are always in the procurement pipe at NSC.
At NSC, you will be working on challenging issues to get modern high-performance computing to function optimally. The skilled multi-national staff together has a wide range of competences, for instance to perform leading edge, scalable storage deployments, data security and integrity, system administration, operational security, optimising code for parallel systems and much more. NSC is involved in a number of international collaborations, e.g. PRACE for future European large-scale computing, EGI for the European grid infrastructure, and IS-ENES for creating a pan-European infrastructure for climate calculations.
