Systems Administrator Position at Northwestern University
Northwestern University's McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science is redefining engineering education and research through its pioneering "Whole-Brain Engineering" philosophy, integrating the elements of left-brain thinking - analysis, logic, synthesis, and math - with the kind of high-level right-brain thinking that fosters intuition, metaphorical thought, and creative problem solving. Augmenting the analytical core of engineering with substantial initiatives in design, entrepreneurship, leadership and personal development, and unusual collaborations that span disciplines, Northwestern Engineering students and faculty are prepared to take the world in a whole new direction.
Northwestern Engineering comprises more than 1,800 undergraduate students, 2,000 graduate students, 190 faculty members across nine academic departments and varied programs, centers, and institutes. Northwestern Engineering staff members support innovative academic programs, an intellectual footprint that deepens the frontiers of knowledge, partnerships that catalyze education and research, and a diverse culture that embraces different viewpoints and ideas.
Under general direction of the Director of the Master of Science in Analytics (MSiA) program, this full-time position will develop and provide support for existing and future computing environments for the master's program. A successful candidate will also be involved in managing and supporting users in the computing clusters and five staff members, maintaining/updating software needs for coursework and project work, coordinating IT based tutorials, and contributing to designing and implementing administrative safeguards for our lab environments. This role will also coordinate all data transfer needs and data destruction required for project work.
