HPC spans every aspect of computing from hardware, middleware, to software; every sector from academia, government, to industry; and every role from teaching, sales, science communication, user support, design, development and deployment of hardware, software and middleware and system administration. Moreover, HPC intersects with many other disciplines and is present around the world, so imagine the possibilities!
The goal of this panel discussion is to feature different job types in HPC, including what skills they require, and how to find them. The complexity of the HPC landscape translates to multitude of job opportunities. Everyone is welcome to participate and contribute to this conversation.
