System Administrator 3 Position
===============================

The Joint BioEnergy Institute is seeking a Systems Administrator, to  
be a part of the Technology Division. The scope of this position  
includes managing scientific computing resources, primarily linux- 
based clusters and servers, making project and public data accessible  
in a timely manner to project participants, and integrating the data  
with existing data from other databases.

The Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) is a new multi-organizational  
research center comprising world-class resources and expertise located  
in one facility at Emeryville, California. The goal of JBEI is to use  
rapidly advancing scientific techniques, such as systems and synthetic  
biology, to accelerate development of the nation's biofuels industry.   
JBEI is a U.S. Department of Energy funded Bioenergy Research Center,  
managed by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) with partners  
from 5 internationally recognized scientific institutions:  Sandia  
National Laboratories (SNL), Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory  
(LLNL), University of California-Davis (UCD), University of California- 
Berkeley (UCB), and the Carnegie Institution for Science

Duties:

Plan, organize, prioritize and complete assigned tasks and projects in  
a timely manner. Frequently and clearly communicate task or project  
status to customers to either set or negotiate expectations. Under the  
broad supervision of the Vice President of Technology and the  
Computational Analysis Director:

Provide linux system administration and user support for research  
groups. This includes system installations, software installations  
from packages or from source code, distribution upgrades, OS and  
security patches, system monitoring, disk and file system management,  
system hardware and peripheral management, backup and recovery  
management, troubleshooting, and crash recovery. Configure,  
administer, and troubleshoot various compute clusters, web and  
database servers, and other services and daemons. Participate in the  
formulation, planning, organizing, implementation and support of new  
services or capabilities. Provide basic support for linux desktop  
systems, including hardware and software installations and upgrades.   
Support a group of approximately 10 full-time programmers and  
computational biologists in using JBEI computational resources.

Key Success Factors:

At least five years linux system administration experience, with  
responsibility for a wide range of hardware and distributions.  
Specific areas of required experience include compute cluster and job  
queuing software administration and support; Apache; Python/Perl; bash/ 
tcsh, including writing complex Bourne shell scripts; runlevel 1 for  
critical update or recovery purposes; remote administration, including  
ssh, remote serial consoles, and remote PDUs; NFS; and monitoring  
various models of RAID controller. Firm understanding of linux  
internals including the boot process, kernel versions, and recovery  
scenarios. Experience with a code management system, preferably CVS or  
Subversion, as both administrator and code contributor. Experience  
with relational database operation and maintenance, specifically with  
MySQL, PostgreSQL or Oracle. Database experience should include  
database design, implementation, installation, and administration,  
including backup and restore of large databases.  Demonstrated ability  
to make progress on multiple tasks simultaneously, and to work both  
independently and as a member of a team. Must be available as needed  
nights and weekends for critical system updates that cannot be  
performed during regular lab hours.

Application Procedure:

This is a full-time one-year Term appointment, renewable under the  
same conditions, contingent upon the continued availability of funding  
and work. For consideration apply online at: http://jobs.lbl.gov,  
select "Search Jobs", and enter job number 21565 in the keyword search  
field.  For more information about JBEI go to:  www.jbei.org
