More entry & senior level RSE posts created at UCL

Jonathan Cooper20 December 2021

The UCL Research Software Development Group is again looking for new RSE members at either entry or senior level. We are planning to appoint at least 2 new staff, ideally many more, depending on the strength of the field.

TL;DR: Apply via the UCL jobs system before the end of Sunday 9th January 2022!

The group, founded in 2012, was the first of its kind, and is one of the leading university-based research programming groups in the UK. We work across college developing high-quality software, collaborating with world-leading scientists, engineers and scholars from all research domains, within UCL and beyond. Whether this means using Python to build up a database of ancient Sumerian writings, parallelising Fortran codes for surface catalysis simulations, analysing live healthcare data within hospitals, or creating an MPI-distributed particle filter for data assimilation in Julia, we do it all. Given the variety of areas in which we work, and the regular turnover of new projects, we welcome a wide range of backgrounds and technical skill sets and support staff to learn on the job. Experience in health data science, high-performance computing or “ML Ops” would be a bonus, but if the general job description matches your profile do not hesitate to apply – all skill sets are welcome. The most important attribute is an enthusiasm for reproducible, reliable and sustainable computational research!

The team is friendly and diverse, currently with over 30 members. All our positions are permanent, on open-ended contracts, and enjoy good opportunities for personal development and career progression within the group, in both technical and managerial tracks. We support a range of flexible working options, including part-time appointments at either level.

For more details of the vacancy and to apply check out the full advert. Note that job descriptions for both grades are given, and you should state in your application which you consider best fits you; the depth of interview will be selected accordingly. The closing date is 9th January 2022, with interviews taking place using Microsoft Teams during the week commencing 24th January. The salary range is from £36,770 to £53,757 per annum depending on grade.
