GTRI-CIPHER is seeking a Systems Administrator for the internal Information Technology group, responsible for supporting and maintaining CIPHER's Core IT Infrastructure. The CIPHER IT team supports over 350 researchers, engineers, and support staff tackling complex and novel IT challenges for commercial and government customers. The CIPHER IT team is distributed across multiple campus buildings and supports a sizable base of remote users across the United States. The candidate will work closely with the CIPHER Infrastructure Lead to facilitate and improve day-to-day IT operations for CIPHER.
Outside of internal operations, the Systems Administrator is expected to actively participate in sponsored research programs across the laboratory above and beyond providing technology support. Many of GTRI-CIPHER’s programs require sophisticated information technology platforms and, as such, the Systems Administrator will be required to hold a Department of Defense Top Secret clearance.
