High Performance Computing Center North (HPC2N) is one of Sweden's leading supercomputing centers, and one of six centers in the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC). HPC2N is based at Umeå University, and is a joint venture between the Swedish Institute of Space Physics, Luleå University of Technology, Mid Sweden University, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, and Umeå University.
HPC2N is operating high-performance parallel computer systems and networks, large-scale disk and tape storage systems. We work closely with researchers to be able to utilize our resources in the best possible way.
Our newest computing resource, Kebnekaise is Sweden's most modern computing system, with the latest generation of Intel processors, both Broadwell Xeon and Xeon Phi (Knights Landing), NVidia GPUs and nodes with up to 3TB of memory. All coupled with a fast InfiniBand network.
HPC2N works in an international environment, a high level of proficiency in both spoken and written English is a requirement. Requirements also include the ability to independently plan, organize, document and follow up on your work, but also on social skills and ability to communicate with colleagues and users.
Umeå University wants to offer an environment where open dialogue between people with different backgrounds and perspectives lay the foundation for learning, creativity and development. In each recruitment we aim to increase diversity and use the opportunity for affirmative action.
