NERSC Exascale Science Postdoctoral Fellowships for Data

December 13, 2016 by Rollin Thomas

We invite data science enthusiasts to apply for a postdoctoral position in our NERSC Exascale Science Applications Program (NESAP) for Data. NESAP for Data focuses on the needs of data-intensive science applications that perform processing and analysis of data from experimental or observational sources (for example: telescopes, microscopes, genome sequencers, light sources, or particle physics detectors). In collaboration with science user communities, NESAP for Data postdocs will explore how to adapt these applications to perform data science and knowledge discovery at scale on energy-efficient supercomputers. Our postdocs are also encouraged to participate in career, science enrichment, and outreach activities at Berkeley Lab.

Upgrades to Facility Will Require Multi-Day Outage in Early 2017

December 5, 2016 by Rebecca Hartman-Baker

There are upgrades to the electrical and plumbing systems in the NERSC machine room that must be performed in the new year. The electrical upgrade will increase the reliability of the electrical system that feeds power to the machines, and the plumbing system upgrade will increase the capacity of the water cooling system that keeps the supercomputers cool.
