EPSRC has announced a call to support Research Software Engineer (RSE) Fellowships for a period of up to 5 years. The Fellowships are open to exceptional individuals in the software field who demonstrate leadership and have combined expertise in programming and a solid knowledge of the research environment.
The Research Software Engineer works with researchers to gain an understanding of the problems they face, and then develops, maintains and extends software to provide the answers. As well as having expertise in computational software development and engineering, the RSE Fellow should be an ambassador for the research software community and have the potential to be a future research leader in the RSE community. RSE Fellows should promote the widespread use of computation and software best practice to enhance research.
Only 2 submissions per institution are allowed, therefore the applications are being coordinated by Research IT. Applications will be evaluated, scored and ranked by an internal panel and two will be selected for further support and full submission to the EPSRC. If you are interested in applying please contact Rob Haines (Head of Research Software Engineering, Research IT) for more details.
Please note that the internal deadline for outline applications is the 19th of May.
