Job responsibilities of this position will primarily be directed at transitioning oncology division investigators toward the cloud, including code modification and containerization, design input, support, and maintenance. Secondary duties will include system administration and system programming for several local compute clusters used by oncology investigators. Further information about work in the Division of Oncology can be found at https://oncology.wustl.edu/.
