Monash eResearch Centre (MeRC) is a University commitment to accelerating research by applying advanced computing and information technology to important research problems. The centre partners with individual researchers, Australian research institutions and facilities and global research communities. MeRC is a leader amongst international eResearch initiatives and runs a number of national projects including the MASSIVE ( www.massive. org.au ) high performance computing facility, the ARDC Nectar Research Cloud node at Monash, petascale data storage infrastructure, and the national Characterisation Virtual Laboratory. The Opportunity
Researchers are increasingly connected, increasingly participating in grand challenge problems, and increasingly reliant on technology. Problem solving for big global challenges, as distinct from fundamental research, can involve large-scale human-related data which is sensitive and sometimes commercial-in-confidence.
This Research DevOps Systems Engineering role joins a critical mass of activity to ensure our digital research infrastructure can still be the biggest, fastest and most complex, but at the same time totally secure!
Earlier this year NVIDIA, Monash University's eResearch Centre , Monash University's Cyber Risk & Resilience team and the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC) Nectar Research Cloud , commenced a series of partnerships to explore the role of Data Processing Units (DPUs) to meet this challenge. The partnership is to explore the paradigm of off-loading (of what is ultimately) micro-segmentation onto DPUs, thus removing the burden of increased security from CPUs, GPUs and top-of-rack / top-of-organisation security appliances. The position will evolve responsive and relevant cyber security for research computing which is foundational to builders of cloud-native applications, safe havens, HPC and data science & AI applications / MLOps to ensure researchers can push the boundaries of their research without any concerns about cyber security.
You will have experience with the following:
- Virtualisation technologies, general Linux and Windows tuning, OpenStack administration (preferable).
- Working knowledge of Linux networking for software defined networking environments (including TCP/IP, routing, switching, VLANs, GRE/VXLAN, firewalls/iptables, software bridges, high availability and load balancing)
- Application of cyber security to multi-cloud applications, and tools such as encryption, introspection, traditional and AI-based threat detection (preferable).
- Configuration management tools (Puppet or Ansible preferable), and associated source code version management and review systems
- Undertaking systematic analysis and demonstrated experience in applying your analytical skills, troubleshooting and conceptual thinking to systems and operations
- Working with researchers and/or research community, supporting researchers on large-scale or distributed computing systems (preferable)
If this sounds like a position that suits your current career focus we look forward to hearing from you. To apply for this exciting opportunity, simply submit your CV along with a cover letter (maximum two pages) addressing your suitability to this position. Key Selection Criteria responses are not required. Please refer to " How to apply for Monash Jobs ".
This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.
The successful applicant will need to possess a current valid Police Check. Enquiries
