The UCL Research Software Development Team works with researchers across college to ensure UCL retains the highest standards of excellence in computational research. We are recruiting one additional research software developer for the team, appointed for two years in the first instance.

In this role, you will design, extend, refactor, and maintain scientific software across all subject areas. You will modify legacy software to run on state-of-the-art high performance computing infrastructure, provide expert software engineering consulting services to world-leading research teams, and work with researchers to build software to meet new research challenges.

You have created and maintained software to address advanced research problems in one or more fields. You can rapidly assimilate understanding of new scientific questions, and quickly connect research needs to software requirements. You are committed to software development best practices, and know how to adapt these to research contexts. You are expert in one or more languages and platforms used for scientific computing, and are keen to expand your knowledge.
