The UCL Centre for Advanced Research Computing (ARC) is recruiting for two permanent Senior RSE members, with a closing date of 6th November 2022. One post has a focus on supporting UCL East, while the other is intended to be more teaching-focused, but any individual matching the job description is encouraged to apply. The most important attribute is an enthusiasm for reproducible, reliable and sustainable computational research!
ARC is UCL’s centre for digital research infrastructure and innovation: the software, supercomputers, data, and skills that underpin computational science and digital scholarship across the college. We are an innovative hybrid: a professional services department that delivers reliable and secure infrastructure and services to UCL research groups, and a laboratory for research and innovation in the application of advanced computational and data-intensive research methods, working in partnership with academics from all fields.
You will design, extend, refactor, and maintain scientific software in all subject areas, providing expert software engineering consulting services to world-leading research teams, training researchers in programming best practices, and working with scientists and scholars to build software to meet new research challenges. 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. With such a varied job we don’t expect our candidates to know it all from the start. It is an excellent opportunity to develop new skills, spending time to study both the research areas we support and the specialist technologies applied.
The team is friendly and diverse, currently with over 45 research technology professionals collaborating on research projects and teaching. 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 all levels.
For more details of the vacancies and to apply check out the full adverts linked above. The closing date will be 6th November 2022, with interviews taking place using Microsoft Teams or in person between 17-25 November. The salary range is from £47,414 – £55,805 per annum.
Further vacancies across all ARC’s professions will be coming soon!
