    Last Changed by Kate Adams, Sep 05, 2014 11:21

     From Tim Middelkoop (middelkoopt@missouri.edu) of University of Missouri-Columbia.

    POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT: Database Programmer Analyst University of Missouri-Columbia

    We are seeking an individual to support computing resources and develop solutions to provide various statewide user groups access to data and other cyberinfrastructure deliverables of the Missouri Transect, a new five-year project supported by the National Science Foundation's Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR).

    Over 30 investigators from nine institutions across the state are collaborating to investigate the impact of climate variability on urban and rural communities, plant productivity and natural ecosystems.

    The research and education activities are focused on understanding, modeling, and predicting short- and long-term trends in temperature and water availability; evaluating the impact of these trends on the productivity of native flora and agricultural crops; and assessing how different stakeholder communities are likely to respond to changing climate.

    The Missouri Transect will also support workforce development in three areas: undergraduate and graduate education; bioinformatics training for women, minorities and people with disabilities; and job training.

    The Database Programmer Analyst will work with a cyberinfrastructure team that includes researchers at the University of Missouri-Columbia, Washington University and the Danforth Plant Science Center, to develop computational tools and resources to support the entire Missouri Transect project.

    The team will focus on big data analytics to model high resolution climate, remote sensing, plant phenotype, imaging and genomics data.

    The computational resources will also be used to train students and researchers to creatively explore massive biological and environmental datasets, and to support outreach activities that inform the general public about climate variability and its predicted effects on agriculture and the environment.

    Responsibilities of the DB Programmer Analyst include:

    1) designing and developing web applications for access to Missouri Transect data, analytical tools and educational resources,

    2) developing applications and standard operating procedures for research data submission and curation,

    3) working with researchers to manage data,

    4) implementing and maintaining an administrative reporting system,

    5) developing tutorials and documentation for various user groups,

    6) supporting course development and user training of CI solutions in conjunction with the principal investigators,

    7) performing Linux system user administration and application
    support.

    Qualifications:

    Required: A bachelor's degree and at least three years of relevant employment experience, including web design, web application
    development and Linux system administration; excellent communication skills; experience with Linux, HTML5, Drupal, CSS,
    MySQL/PostgreSQL, PHP or other web language.

    Preferred: Experience with LDAP, Linux security, MatLab, R and C programming.

    This short course is designed as an intensive, hands-on introduction to Red Hat SELinux, a technology that adds mandatory access controls to the Linux kernel and can stop buffer overflow and other malicious attacks. The focus will be on understanding the SELinux theory, components, installation, configuration and log records, and how to secure applications both by configuring existing SELinux policies and by creating new policies. You'll come away from this course with the SELinux skills to secure your platform running your own applications. 

    This course is a hands-on experience with demonstration, student labs and a focus on understanding the function of SELinux policies. It is valuable for system administrators, advanced Linux users and others who need expertise in SELinux. The course can serve as a primer for a novice or a refresher for experienced SELinux users. 

    Topics to be covered include:

    • Brief Linux Review
    • Role-Based Access Control: Subjects, Objects & Policies
    • Introduction to SELinux: Identities, Roles, Types, Domains & Contexts 
    • SELinux Components & Modes
    • SELinux Logs & GUIs
    • Lab: Track a policy violation
    • Dynamic Policy Modification & Enforcement 
    • Writing SELinux Policies
    • Policy Creation Tools
    • Lab: Create and deploy a policy
    • Introduction to Multi-Level Security

    Name of Grant: CISE Research Infrastructure (CRI), Program Solicitation NSF 14-593

    What: The CISE Research Infrastructure (CRI) program drives discovery and learning in the core CISE disciplines of the three participating CISE divisions by supporting the creation and enhancement of world-class research infrastructure that supports focused research. 

    Institutional Infrastructure (II) awards support the creation of new (II-NEW) CISE research infrastructure or the enhancement (II-EN) of existing CISE research infrastructure to enable world-class CISE research opportunities at the awardee and collaborating institutions. ($250,000-$750,000)

    Community Infrastructure (CI) awards support the planning (CI-P) ($50,000 - $100,000) for new CISE community research infrastructure, the creation of new (CI-NEW) CISE research infrastructure or the enhancement (CI-EN) of existing CISE infrastructure to enable world-class CISE research opportunities for broad-based communities of CISE researchers that extend well beyond the awardee institutions. Each CI award may support the operation of such infrastructure, ensuring that the awardee institution(s) is (are) well-positioned to provide a high quality of service to CISE community researchers expected to use the infrastructure to realize their research goals. Except for CI planning, CI awards will be in the $500,000-1,000,000 range.
