Dash has two default areas for storing data: the home directory for each user ($HOME), under/users and a working directory for each user, under /work. Policies and recommended uses for these two areas differ.

Because your home and work directories are located on the Network File System (NFS), neither should be used for running jobs. Instead, users should copy their simulation outputs straight to /phase1, because the performance is better and more total space is available there.
