GRID Cluster System Manager (London, UK)

This post involves managing a large Linux cluster in a friendly academic environment. The cluster is Red Hat/Scientific Linux/Fedora slanted but I am a Debian fanatic myself!

The desk for this post is adjacent to mine so I have a vested interest in advertising to the Debian community as I'd like to work alongside someone else in the Debian community!

Here is the job advert can be found here:
