Position Summary:

IceCube is a kilometer-scale neutrino detector located at the South Pole. The detector consists of over 5,000 optical sensors deployed over a kilometer deep in the Antarctic ice. Data collection from the detector is well underway and will continue to be acquired and analyzed for many years. Details can be found at

The IceCube data center located at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) includes about 8+PB of disk storage and 7000+ CPU cores. The computing systems at the South Pole consist of about 60 servers in different configurations that are used to run the data acquisition, online filtering and archiving services.

Several collaboration partners provide computing resources which are operated in a coordinated way from WIPAC as a distributed computing infrastructure. Additional resources such as other academic clusters (Grid) that offer opportunistic access, supercomputers or commercial clouds are also integrated in this infrastructure. The Computing Manager coordinates the operations of this resource and works with users to ensure that the service meets requirements for data analysis.

The IceCube Computing Manager is responsible for IceCube computing facilities and services. The primary focus is IceCube computing facilities at UW-Madison.
