To submit your slurm job to the scheduler, first load the slurm modules:

module load slurm

Then to submit the job, you can execute the command:

sbatch <jobfile>

Note that your job script must be saved to a file - copying and pasting the script into the shell will not work!

For a full list of options available to the squeue command issue:

man sbatch
