UCL’s Centre for Advanced Research Computing is looking for another web development specialist
By Jonathan Cooper, on 24 September 2021
The UCL Research Software Development 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, creating an online system to develop and evaluate models of heart cells, analysing live healthcare data within hospitals, or designing and building a big data image processing library in C++11 and Python, 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. The most important attribute is an enthusiasm for reproducible, reliable and sustainable computational research!
In 2020 we created a new role within the group for a Research Web Application Developer and are now seeking to expand this sub-team due to ongoing growing demand – ever more projects are requiring research software to be deployed as interactive web applications. We are particularly seeking a front-end web developer able to produce both attractive and functional solutions, but a desire to engage deeply with the research community is key – we work with people, not requirements specifications.
You will join a growing team that is friendly and diverse, with around 30 members currently. 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.
