The Business of Information and facts Know-how (OIT) is launching a countrywide search for a study computing director to establish on the perform of observed supercomputer strategist Thomas Hauser, who is departing CU Boulder on Feb. 28 to start out a new position at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
Shelley Knuth, associate director of investigate computing user assist in OIT Investigation Computing, will oversee the device on an interim foundation until a look for for a successor is done. Knuth currently potential customers consumer knowledge, consulting, and teaching attempts for study computing.
Considering the fact that 2010, Hauser has led OIT Investigation Computing, which presents a computational and facts infrastructure to assist scientists on and off campus.
Additionally, the device offers teaching and consulting in computational methods and knowledge management, in collaboration with nationwide and regional teams and the Center for Study Knowledge and Electronic Scholarship (CRDDS).
“We are grateful for all of Thomas’s contributions and his considerable achievements around almost a 10 years,” stated Main Information Officer Marin Stanek. “He has elevated CU Boulder’s research computing standing on a national scale, and it is crucial that, as a tier-one particular public exploration college, we make on the momentum and partnerships with regional universities he and his crew have cast.”
Stanek stated she is self-assured Knuth will efficiently lead the investigate computing team as OIT conducts a nationwide research for Hauser’s successor. A finalist is probable to be introduced someday in May well, she mentioned.
Above the upcoming numerous months, OIT will operate with vital campus partners such as the Analysis and Innovation Business (RIO) and College Libraries to attain a lot more insight into bettering and scaling computational study guidance, Stanek mentioned.
In addition to his other function, Hauser is one of two government administrators at the Heart for Investigation Details and Electronic Scholarship and chairs the Rocky Mountain Advanced Computing Consortium (RMACC), which collaborates on cyberinfrastructure projects throughout the Rocky Mountain location.
Below his management, the RMACC Summit, a supercomputer collaboration amongst CU Boulder and Colorado Condition University, arose in 2017 via a Countrywide Science Basis grant. The supercomputer delivers sophisticated computing capabilities to CU and CSU researchers doing work in astrophysics, bioinformatics, chemistry, computational fluid dynamics, earth sciences, everyday living sciences, materials science, physics and social sciences.
For her part, Knuth, who acquired a doctorate in atmospheric and oceanic science at CU Boulder, is also the director of schooling and coaching for CRDDS, a collaboration concerning OIT Exploration Computing and University Libraries.
In addition, Knuth is a member of the leadership group for the Campus Champions Program, which offers superior computing direction to a lot more than 600 researchers at extra than 300 establishments throughout the United States.
“Shelley has excelled in strengthening the RC solutions for CU researchers’ needs and has collaborated efficiently with campus stakeholders to give consulting and training for researchers and pupils,” Hauser explained.
