An exciting opportunity is available for a motivated and customer-centric professional to join the NeSI team. We are seeking a Research Communities Facilitator to be responsible for facilitating the planning, development, and delivery of engagement-related activities in line with NeSI objectives.

New Zealand's newest collaborative research platform for genomics and bioinformatics research is hiring its first employees and preparing to launch its services.

The refresh of NeSI’s platforms is well underway. In December, all FitzRoy users were successfully migrated to Kupe and in early January FitzRoy was shut down. This month, renovations began at the High Performance Computing Facility plant at Greta Point, and the installation of Mahuika and Maui is expected to begin in late February.On February 7, we will be hosting a User Q&A Session to provide a brief update on the project status to date and will offer users an opportunity to ask questions about the new platforms.

As 2017 draws to a close, NeSI is celebrating the completion of some major milestones in the refresh of its platforms. The NeSI/NIWA team have been working with Cray and its subcontractors to install, test and configure Kupe, which is sited in the University of Auckland Tamaki Data Centre.

Since signing the contract with Cray, our combined teams have been refining the design of the new High Performance Computing (HPC) systems, and the services they will provide. We are now pleased to share the features and technical specifications of these systems and how these could benefit researchers. 

It has been a busy year for those involved in the Strategic Science Investment Fund (SSIF). MBIE are putting into action their management of these investments as a portfolio. Prior to launching the SSIF in 2016, MBIE managed each investment separately and independently of each other. The SSIF enables MBIE to better prioritise, balance, and manage performance of investments with a focus on impact and excellence.
