Further expansion of UCL’s RSE group, with permanent roles at assistant through senior levels

By Jonathan Cooper, on 31 May 2022

The UCL Research Software Development Group is again looking for new RSE members at 3 grades up to senior, with a new ‘assistant’ role suitable for applicants straight out of undergraduate degrees. We are planning to appoint at least 4 new staff, ideally more, depending on the strength of the field.

TL;DR: Apply via the UCL jobs system before the end of Monday 13th June 2022! Ensure you state in your application which grade you are applying for.

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 Django, 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 35 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 all levels.

For more details of the vacancy and to apply check out the full advert. Note that job descriptions for all 3 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 13th June 2022, with interviews taking place using Microsoft Teams around 2 weeks later. The salary range is from £29,802 to £53,757 per annum depending on grade.
