EPSRC has announced a pilot call for Research Software Engineer Fellowships .
This is an exciting step towards the development of a long-term career path for research programmers, something we’ve been struggling towards for a long time.
UCL will be very keen to support the best candidates in applications to this fellowship.
We’re committed to a dual academic-and-support model for the RSE role, so we welcome great candidates who seek a joint position in both the Research Software Development Group and a UCL academic department. Interested candidates should get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can help you make contact with departmental colleagues.
UCL is one of the best places on the planet to be a programmer-researcher. We think future leaders of the research programming community will benefit from basing their fellowship in our growing, boundary-pushing research software development group.
