Berkeley Research Computing is expanding our successful Domain Consultant program by hiring five more UC Berkeley graduate students. The Domain Consultant position is a 20% to 25% (8 to 10 hours/week) appointment, paid hourly ($20–$30/hr based on experience; no tuition/fee remission.)

Domain Consultants serve as a first point of contact for faculty, postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and research staff to understand their research and facilitate access to computing resources that will best support their research. Working as a Domain Consultant gives graduate students an opportunity to learn about and support the myriad research projects happening across all of campus — not just within their own departments.

Research IT is looking for candidates who are comfortable with at least one of the computing resources provided or mediated by Berkeley Research Computing, including the Savio HPC cluster, AEoD virtual research desktop service, commercial cloud providers, and national computer infrastructure (XSEDE). Berkeley Research Computing will provide training across the range of computer resources available for researchers.

As time permits, in addition to doing consultations, Domain Consultants work on projects including developing new documentation, and creating and holding trainings for researchers. Domain Consultants work in a dynamic mix of professional Research IT staff and undergraduate student assistants, and have opportunities to collaborate with and mentor undergraduate staff.
