ICHEC staff play an important role in maintaining the national HPC infrastructure as well as supporting and developing the community to enable world-class research on these systems. Their main roles and responsibilities can be broadly categorised into various groups. However, much of the work is collaborative efforts that overlap different groups (e.g. Helpdesk issues are monitored and dealt with by nearly all ICHEC staff, including the Management Team).
The Management & Administrative Team oversees the operation of the whole centre hence it is involved in all ICHEC activities. Some of its major functions include funding, administration, public relations, outreach and national/international collaborations, etc.
ICHEC computational scientists come from a diverse range of backgrounds (e.g. physics, geophysics, meteorology, chemistry, molecular dynamics, computer science, bioinformatics). They are responsible for the support and development of the research community. Their activities include:
The work of ICHEC's Computational Researchers is focused on a clearly defined research programme. This programme has been established with the support and collaboration of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and an industrial partner.
The systems staff are responsible for the operation of the infrastructure. They are involved in the following:
Software developers are typically involved in specific collaborative projects, which includes our technology transfer activities with business and industry. ICHEC uses the PRINCE2 Project Management framework for software development work. Publicly accessible development projects are listed below:
