Oxford e-Research Centre are looking to recruit a Senior Research Computing Specialist, to administer and further develop a range of advanced research computing infrastructure that supports university researchers on both local and regional resources.
By Simon Hettrick.
Our policy team has been looking into research computing. This is specialist support for researchers who use software as a fundamental part of their research (leaders in this field are groups like the UCL Research Computing team, the EPCC and the Oxford eResearch Centre.). The theory we would like to test is that the greater the status of research computing at an organisation, the better the software produced by that organisation.
