COVID-19 Essential Service

NeSI remains open for normal business during Alert Level 3 in Auckland and Alert Level 2 outside of Auckland. Our team is working remotely in Auckland and everyone remains available during this time.

NeSI is a supplier of essential services to research teams working on the COVID-19 response across NZ. If you're involved in this work, please get in touch and we will do our best to assist in any way possible.

NeSI is a collaboration of four institutions, including the University of Auckland, working in partnership with the Crown, providing High Performance Computing (HPC), analytics, training, and consultancy services to the NZ Research sector, Government Initiatives/Agencies and Industrial Research.  Our primary aim is to grow the computing and analytics capability of researchers to ensure New Zealand’s future prosperity.

Significant research outcomes have resulted from the use of NeSI platforms and services across several scientific domains including health, biodiversity, biochemistry and geology to name a few.  Researchers often depend on advanced high performance computing (HPC) capabilities to achieve their goals, and NeSI is at the forefront of this innovation.

The Analyst Programmer role, whilst employed by the University of Auckland, is a NeSI national role whose primary responsibilities are for the design and implementation of end-user services for researchers and fellow team members, aimed at enhancing research capability and efficiency. This includes end user driven software design, solution evaluation, integration and development, across Drupal and Java web applications and APIs and relational databases. A key goal of the role is to support evolution of the business processes and practices of NeSI to deliver user experiences valued by end users.

This is a specialised role, requiring a strong background in the enhancement to existing services in order to optimise user experience and organisational processes. As a member of a team that is providing national solutions in the high-performance computing and eScience domain, you will have the opportunity to work with colleagues across the country and internationally to develop and deliver a state-of-the art eScience infrastructure.

If you’re interested in picking up a national challenge and be part of something unique that hasn’t been done before in New Zealand, this role may be just right for you.  Over the past year, NeSI has been central to significant research outcomes including: improving the treatment of heart disease through stent design as well as the design of better wind turbines for more efficient power generation. 

These are just two of our success stories.  Join us in creating more as we continue to innovate and support the research community in New Zealand and beyond.
