The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project is looking for a talented software quality team leader who is interested in working on a ground breaking international project.

The complexity and difficulty of installing scientific software can often hamper its uptake and use within research communities. Douglas Lowe, a Research Software Engineer in Research IT, has been working with Dr Eric Prestat from the School of Natural Sciences to solve this problem for Prismatic, a cross-platform research software toolkit.

Imperial College London is recruiting a developer to join its Research Computing Service (RCS) as a Research Software Engineer (RSE).
By Mark Woodbridge, Research Software Engineering Team Lead, Imperial College London We previously described three RSE-related use cases for Microsoft’s Azure platform, ranging in deployment granularity from VMs to individual JavaScript functions. In this post we’ll explain further how we use those and other Azure services to complement our on-premise infrastructure – helping us to deliver our RSE projects faster.
When researchers Drs Gary Motteram, Susan Dawson and Amanda Banks Gatenby from the School of Environment, Education and Development wanted to run analysis on WhatsApp messages, they came to Research IT for help.
In March 2019, a group of active members of the research software community in the Netherlands had a meeting with NWO (The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research) to discuss the importance of research software in contemporary research and its relationship to research data, open science, and reproducibility in research (please see Making Research Software a First-Class Citizen in Research).
The Software Sustainability Institute has launched a new evaluation service to ensure your research software is as good as it can be.
Only eight days to go until the fourth annual RSE conference begins in Birmingham!
