Research Software Engineers

Research Software Engineers (RSEs; also known as Research Software Developers, HPC Programmers, Scientific Programmers, …) combine academic research experience with expertise in good software engineering principles. We provide a service which helps researchers to build more readable, reliable, and efficient code. Our work is not just about producing software on behalf of researchers; we work collaboratively, providing the tools, advice and training researchers need so they can follow best practice and continue to develop sustainable software themselves in future.

Our goal is to enhance UCL's capacity to produce high quality research software, from the simplest scripts to complex simulations running on state-of-the-art supercomputers. ARC’s RSEs collaborate with research colleagues from across UCL to construct, improve, and maintain codes used for modelling, analysis, synthesis, simulation and more. We can rapidly assimilate research context through publications and conversation with research groups, understand the computational algorithms, requirements and interfaces needed within the research effort, and construct high-quality software for research colleagues which will result in a sustained impact on their research programme. The team also provides consulting on software practices, techniques, design, and architecture to research groups, helping to build robust and maintainable research software.
